  1. Never had a problem with this, though mainly shot local matches. Someone shooting a Spencer in any form is hardly a threat of being a “gamer”.
  2. Yes, you only have handle one extra object rather then digging out three loose rounds. Keep in mind you must handle the carbine/rifle and magazine spring with one hand while loading with the other. I carry the reload tube in a repro Dyer pouch.
  3. I have one of the early .45 Schofield guns, and it would hold 8, but I usually only load 7 for better reliability. I reload on the clock with small copper tube that holds 3 rounds like a miniature Blakeslee tube. As mentioned earlier, Spencers are very OAL dependent. One of the nice things about the .45 Schofield Spencers was for reenacting, you could load very cheap blanks using .44 magnum brass.
  4. At the moment, Ballistol appears readily available on Amazon.
  5. a SAR B6c (Turkish CZ75 clone) and a IWI Tavor, both virtual of course.
  6. Its basically an Irish whiskey with honey added,
  7. I don't know how much it adds to the cost but there are environmental regulations that need to be met, mainly to prevent fuel leakage.
  8. No, that’s a clip for a Mannlicher style magazine the Mannlicher Schoenauer has a Schoenauer style rotary magazine.
  9. Glass lenses can shatter into sharp fragments. I have a nice “dueling” scar as a result of one of my glass lenses shattering from a freak impact, I was lucky not to have lost my eye. Now I only wear polycarbonate lenses.
  10. It does look something like a Gren, though I don't think he did rear sights like that, mine has a notched hammer for a sight. Also, he marked his guns.

  12. Forty, before Steyr added more American chambering in the 1924 model, the magazines were designed to the profile of the round the gun was chambered in, so if you rechambered the rifle, you would also most likely need to modify the magazine.
