I'd like a Spencer rifle, being a Louis Lamour fan. Not in the original 56 RF, but in a CF version. I'd like a good 3" Ithaca 12 ga and 20 ga to round out my collection, a Savage M-24 in 22 Hornet over 20 ga, a Savage M23 in 22 Hornet (again to round out my collection), a Savage 99 in every possible variation and caliber (Savage never made a bad 99!!!!, a 92 Winchester clone or Marlin 94 in 357. I'd like to be able to afford to get my Marlin 1894 32-20 and my M-39 DeLuxe professionally rebuilt by Turnbull. I want a matched set of CPA Stevens 44's in 22lr, 32-40 and 45-70.

I'd like a Smith M-1955, M-16 32Mag and a better 1911 45ACP. Mostly I'd like NYs ridiculous SAFE Act to be abolished!

Re-enacter group had a little note about a shop in Texas that had some Spencer conversions to fire 50-70 centerfire, same shop had Sharps Carbines with same caliber conversion. Original recievers, no 4473 forms needed and some of them were used in civil war movies-- that was original reason for the conversions of the Spencers early 1950s, at least this method conversion. Sharps conversion breech block dates to 1870 or so when the 50-70 was still a current cartridge just before 45-70 became main army standard issue. If you find a Spencer in 44-40 with a extra date on reciever or barrel, Winchester markings you might want to get some heart attack medicine before asking price. RN

A friend of mine does period restorations of classic homes. While pulling apart an old attic he found a museum quality Spencer and the old woman home owner gave it to him.

It's not the first time it happened (he's been doing it for decades). In one of those houses he found (and if he didn't get it for free it was close to it) a Remington Rangemaster 22 in excellent condition. I think it had a 28" heavy barrel and one of those two foot long Ulerti 3-12 (I seem to remember) power scopes on it. It had the single shot insert but I was able to adapt a standard Remington 7 shot magazine to fit it for him(the originals are impossible to find). It also had the original wood cheek piece riser for it but I didn't see it.
