Most popular now is the Italian made versions imported by the makers listed above. The Italian copies are 56-50 (apprx .510" +/-), and then some non Spencer chamberings of 44-40, 45 Colt, 45 Scholfield, 44 Russian. 56-50 brass is available (from Midway I think) for the Italian version of the 56-50, also bullet moulds, and smokeless or black powder loaded ammo.
There is high quality American made copy is Larry Romano's Rifle Works in NY state, but I don't think he's making anymore Spencer's right now.
Do a search on this web site and you should find more about Spencers.

Get the Sharps. Preferably one made by Pedersoli, whichever importer you go to.

The Spencer is a much more complicated rifle than the reproduction shops appreciate and they can be tricky to get to run. Especially if you want one in a caliber it was not designed for. I will have more on this tomorrow, fireworks will include a Spencer.

Many years ago, I owned and shot an original trapdoor Springfield rifle, not the carbine, but I'm priced out of the market now.
Great fun to shoot.

As soon as I can cobble together a couple thousand dollars, which is hard to do right now with gas prices and everything else heading for orbit, I intend to buy a full length Spencer .56/.50 and a couple hundred loaded cartridges.

I have the bullet mold and the die set, just can't seem to cobble together that kind of disposable cash right now,,,,,,,,

Onmilo,
$800 to $1200 should be able to find you an Italian copy. Check the websites above and gunbroker and gunsAmerica .
Note that the new 56-50 is known as the 56-50 Taylor's and has different dimensions then the original Spencer 56-50.

I got mine from Dixie Gun Works on sale for $995.00. It's a 56-50. Great shooter and functions pretty much flawlessly. This photo is from the first time I shot it. Black powder loads.

We should have a postal match with our Spencers. Any takers. I shoot an original 56-50.

Yeah, About $1250 for the rifle, $250.00 for a couple hundred loaded cartridges, I know about the difference in dimensions.
I already have about $150.00 in a bullet mould and dies from Buffalo Arms,shipping charges,,,,
The money starts adding up quick.
