Armi Sport Spencer Carbine in .45 long colt

Hurray! Just a good gunsmith and it now even cycles Black Hills! You don't even have to act like your trying to rip the lever off either!

It was just as simple as sharpening the 'hook' of the ejector and putting a little better spring under it! Now it cycles easily every time and you don't even have to worry. Beautiful Carbine too! Accurate, and I even had the trigger polished so it's not as hard and 10 lbs as before. It's so nice to shoot cheap ammo through it too. Heck, I don't want to really kill any animal but if I could be asked to shoot a couple of wild hogs I'd be willing!

Too bad America doesn't have Zombies... it would be so nice to take out our frustrations on Zombies so you wouldn't feel guilty eh?

Anyway, a real +++++ for the Armi Sport Spencer in .45 Long colt! just a few simple things that you'd probably have done anyway and what a neat carbine!

Thanks everyone, and it's just a few simple things. Joe was already going to have Chiappa send me a return postage but I just called him and gave him the news! Legendary Guns had a great deal on it too! Now I'll take my original to my gunsmith and have the centerfire block put on with the recessed magazine follower too. Can't wait!

Armi Sport Spencer .45 Long Colt

Hi everyone again,

O.K. my gunsmith fixed the failure to cycle the spencer. That's done. Next, I noticed that the barrel actually moves in the frame! Can you guys believe this?

Who on earth is responsible for fixing the barrel to the frame, huh? I had to drop it by my gunsmith again and probably the only thing to do is to unscrew it and add locktite or something!

The only thing I can think of is they had their rifling set to the wrong caliber for the rifle and it just kinda sits in there?

I'll let you know the latest when he calls me and tells me. It's a neat rifle, carbine... but I have no idea how they managed to import these things to the main places like Cimarron.

Anyway, I'll keep you posted.

HA! Yeah, my barrel came loose during a match too - I unscrewed it when I got home, cleaned the threads, applied blue Loctite, screwed it back in, and it's been fine ever since.

Armi Sport Spencer 45 long colt for sale on

Hi everyone,
Well, it's a great gun, had almost a box of ammo through it, solved all the problems with the cycling and barrel and I want one in 56/50 so it's for sale on gunbroker with the reciept from Legendary guns!

If you want one in 45 long colt check it out. The reserve is 1000.00 and it's new! got all the paperwork and everything so i thought I'd at least let y'all know. Most of you want what I decided on in 56/50 but if you want a better deal on one in 45 long colt you've got a chance.


Just get on and look up Spencer and you'll see the carbine and the box and papers.
