…-hardening.  This seems to have been the case even if upgraded wood was not requested.  

From my own experience I have seen this on 1873's and 1876's.  Was it common as well on other models that got case-hardening as an "extra" feature?  I know the early 1886's had case-hardening on the

The problem is the gun does not letter as a 50 but 45-75.

Did Winchester chamber any 1876 SRC’s in 50-95? Letter says “Rifle” and octagon barrel. Strike three.

…they couldn't get past $1400 on the rare single-shot.  Yet this mess hammers at $3700?

…to show up after one passes on. I desided to keep one "Presentation" 1894 Carbine, a 1885 "Pope Rifled" Low Wall, one 1873 engraved rifle and one 1876 Short Rifle, this just to remind myself what the last 30+ years of collecting Winchesters was all about. I'll still keep some of my Colt Percussion

…(Plating = #11, Color or cased Finish #23, etc.)  We know the "CF" on lower tangs occurs on both color case hardened and blued guns (1973, 1876, 1886) and on blued guns (1892, 1894, and would expect the same for color case hardened 1892's or 1894's).  So the "CF" we see on the lower tang…

…see in the photos it had some rusting and has been cleaned.  The lower tang and receiver finish whether CCH or blued should match. 

As for the 1876 with the 1937 stamped on the lower tang, dont know there would be a correlation between the two.

As a matter of fact there is a famous photo of a young TR in buckskins holding what appears to be an 1876 and a dagger stuffed in his cartridge belt in the 1909 book I mentioned above. The other photo sounds familiar but I may be confusing it with this

…a little bit of writing about his favorite Winchester of the time (1885), a repeater in 45-75. I think we can safely assume it was a Model 1876 even though I didn’t find where he mentioned the actual model.

…Hudsons invoice has an item "CF" #23 case hardening, receiver. The charge for this was $1.50. I assume W. O. stands for work order.

Also my 1876  that letters with a set trigger and removed before shipping is stamped 1937  and 102 on tang. I think the 102 is for removal of set trigger. My

What was the configuration and caliber of the 1876 with the R&R sheet?  I assume it is a "special sporting rifle" with pistol grip, deluxe checkered stock, case hardened.  Barrel length 28"?

Total 1876 rifles:  53,367

…Merz has 30 rifles and 2 carbines - Grove has 2, both rifles - Collectors has almost exclusively rifles. Where you really find rarity in the Model 1876 is in checkering, case hardening and 50 caliber. The attached gun has all these features and I am lucky to have it.
