Rogers and Spencer strip down.

Hi Guys, I've got a Rogers and Spencer I had converted to run on Bullseye, it came back from the gunsmith with a terrible trigger ( why was that) I stripped it , there were bits going every where.
There's a lot of wear in the trigger assembly but it was OK before, now it won't cock, I think I've got all the bits in place but somethings wrong or I 've lost something small.
If any one has a picture or a strip down and rebuild description I'd really appreciate it.

What is a Rogers and Spencer?

I take it you are from the UK.

Do you have a pic of the gun?

The Rogers and Spencer was a Civil War era blackpowder revolver that was made in small numbers. Replicas are being made in Italy. Anthony, you should repost your question on this site's Blackpowder forum. You'd get a better response.

And then we could hear the engines stop, and cargo nets were thrown over the side. That's how we were rescued."

Rogers and Spenser revolver.

Hello Tipoc, Kernal has posted a picture of my pistol, you made 5000 of them in the States after the Civil War, as he says they are being made as replica revolvers in Italy.
I'm a pistol shooter in England, we are restricted to muzzle loading pistols and single shot .22 free pistols though we can have any number of rifles.

The Blackpowder section of the forum will likely help you more as Kernal said...

Here is a diagram. That gun is not much different from the Remington and the lockwork is much the same as the Colt. The main improvement is that the cylinder pin is attached to the rammer, an idea Ruger used later in the Old Army.
