So, after watching "Unforgiven" last night, I was wondering if anyone makes any Spencer rifle reproductions? Not sure what the original caliber was, but I think something more readily available would be nice, but I'm just curious for now.

So, are there any modern reproductions of it? Who makes 'em?

Its a large rimfire cartirdge, and its all but extinct. I think its .50 cal. I love that rifle, but I think we are SOL.

.56-50 spencer. Looks like and basically was developed as a scaled up .22 short. Is also a rimfire cartridge. I forget who now but there are repro's made and in more common centerfire calibers, like .44-40 ans .44 S$W russian.

Taylor & Co. has a repro Spencer. It is a bit pricey but a low production run gun is going to cost that.

Damn, damn old fashioned stuff heh. Thanks anyway. I'll have to put it on the "when I'm rich" list then

Try Dixie Gun Works web site. If it's made, they sell it.

Back in the late '60's, early 70's there was a small ad in every issue of Gunweek (?) selling Spencers for $25. They had come back in country from some old military contract. I boot myself every now and then for not picking them up.
