Item No.: 9120 Price : $5,750.00
Item : FINE, WINCHESTER MODEL 1876 "CENTENNIAL" RIFLE, .45-60 CALIBER
Description :
Here is an original, Winchester Model 1876 Rifle chambered for the .45-60 cartridge. This is a Third Model 1876 manufactured in 18854 with the guide rail machined integral with the frame. The Model 1876 was Winchester's first rifle to be chambered for the larger rifle cartridges. Prior to this, Winchesters were chambered for what were effectively pistol cartridges. Seeing a need to compete with the heavy buffalo guns like the single shot Sharps, Winchester scaled up the Model 1873, lengthening the frame to accommodate longer cartridges. Thus was born the Model 1876, also known as the "Centennial" Model. Here was a Winchester Lever Action that could be used to take large game animals. The '76 Winchester was produced from 1876 to 1897 with just over 63,00 made. This particular rifle is complete and untouched. It has a 28" full octagon barrel. It is in antique fine condition and retains about 50% 0f its factory blued finish. The barrel retains more finish than the receiver and stock mountings. The rifle exhibits overall finish wear consistent with having been used in the field. There is some browning of the finish in areas. The butt plate has little to no finish with a speckling of brown and some light pitting at the heel. The mechanics are excellent. The bore has some light pitting along its length, but the rifling remains visible along its length. It has been polished shiny by shooting. The stock is in fine condition with nice even coloring. There is a scattering of small dings and scratches from use. This is a nice, untouched, all original '76 Winchester. Stock no. 24394
