History: In 1867, Christopher Spencer sold all his patent rights and signed an agreement with Oliver Winchester, of the Winchester Repeating Firearms Co., agreeing never to invent or produce any other repeating firearms. Then in 1872, Spencer designed and built a single shot cartridge rifle. He entered his rifle design, along with 92 other single shot rifles from different firearm companies to the military trials for evaluation. At that time, our military was stationed out West and was looking for a rifle with a larger caliber that could shoot greater distances. All were lost to the Trap Door Springfield Rifle. Spencer never pursued his Single-Shot Rifle any farther. To this date, there are none left in existence. Today, L. Romano Rifle Co., is the only one in the world that has reproducedĀ this unique Single Shot Action Cartridge Rifle.
