…too believe that it is a Winchester Model 1886 (early production) butt plate.  The Model 1876 butt plates were nearly identical... but they all had trap doors in them.

…ago I bought a 1894 rifle in 25-35 just to shoot with the grand kids, I have to have a tang sight. I put a thin base mid-range vernier peep off a 1876 on it. Ten minutes to install, works great, blue matches the gun, and the 76 doesn't miss it. If I sell the gun the sight will go back on the 76.

…I recall, the 1876 model had more set triggers per capita than any other early Winchester repeater.  Based on TR's numbers, that's more than 16% of the Model 1876's

…The 1886 photo shows a sporting leaf sight and the screw is in the right place. The photos are poor but that series of sight is found on many 1873s, 1876s, and 1886s. They can be marked or sometimes not.

  The first model 1873 rifle commonly used the short sporting rear sight, with the checkering

…many set triggers were built for the 1876 Winchester rifle.

In George Madis’s, The Winchester Handbook, he says there were 4562 built.

I know sometimes his figures are wrong.

I load and shoot the .40-60 WCF in an original 1876 rifle.  It's sort of like a super .44-40.  About the same weight of bullet, more powder.  Heavy rifle but I understand it was popular with wolf

I have seen similar entries in several different Winchester models, but they are very infrequent.  Your Model 1876 was originally built as shown in the crossed out information (A Fancy Sporting Rifle), but was then retuned by its owner, and reworked to its

…come by in its original specs, I only have a total of 40 brass casings for this vintage caliber that was chambered in the original Winchester Model 1876. I read that they quit producing 45-75 ammo in the 1930's. Anyway, here are two photos. The first one shows a 45-75 cartridge beside one of my…

…. It should be noted that they stated on their website that a .454 bullet would be required, but that is too small a diameter in my original 1876 to give good accuracy when the groove diameter is .457. The Bertram brass worked perfectly.

…word that doesn't go well with Winchester rifles.  The sporting leaf sight was common on the large frame rifles.  There was a carbine sight used on 1876 rifles that I think would have also been used on the 1886 carbines.  See below.  It is also of sporting leaf style.  The leaf is shorter than the…

…as mine.  I don’t think I’ve seen this Type D checkering on a Winchester other than a Model 1886 rifle.  It seems unlikely on the Model 1873 and 1876 rifles and their predecessors and the Model 1892 and rifles subsequent to it, except I wouldn’t be surprised if one or more Model 1894 rifles turned

Thanks for this. Exactly what I may do.

I just found in Arthur Pirkel's book; Winchester Lever Action Repeating Arms Models of 1866, 1873, 1876,

"The extractor pins for all four 1873 calibers have the same diameter, 5/64."

"The 32 caliber pin is 9/32" long."

I measured my pin which

Tim, unfortunately the museum has no budget for a letter.  I've considered becoming a member, probably worth it.  We did pay for a letter for an 1876 in .50-95 Express that has fairly solid provenance belonging to Webb Hayes, son of President Hayes.  Webb and General George Crook came to Wyoming…

…to hunt and fish between 1879 and 1890 when Crook passed. 

 

Bob, so our 1876 is probably a .45-75?  Was the .45-60 marked?  Of course the 1876 was not chambered in .45-70.

  

I miss typed the 45-70, The 45-60's were marked.

Bob
