…what the .50-95 was called until the .50-110 Express came along in 1887) was introduced in the May 1, 1879 catalog for a special version of the 1876 rifle.  The Express rifle was even priced differently than other 1876 rifles.

….  And as others said, you will end up with a Frankenchester.  They made a whole lot more M1873's than they did many of the other models (e.g. 1876, 1886, 1895) so there are plenty out there to be found in about any price range.

As a Canadian, the Winchester "holy grail" for me would be an honest, original Winchester Model 1876 45-75 NWMP carbine with the original "NWMP" still visible on the buttstock.  

I would agree with that. I have longed to have an NWMP 1876 also…

…. I did have an 1876 Rifle in .45-75 but sold it. I do have one .45-75 cartridge with the "00" headstamp but that's as close as I have got to a NWMP carbine.

…the drawing was listing it for the 73 instead of the 76.  A simple error of 1 digit.

FWIW, Stroebel does list the 36 as an optional sight for the 1876 so it must be indicated somewhere......

I'm trying to recall his history with the M1886.  I recall TR hunted quite a bit with his M1876 Winchester (.45/75?) and I also seem to recall he liked his Bullard .50/115 pretty well.

It appears that RCBS still offers the .45-75 dies.  They must be a regular production item.  Maybe since Uberti is making .45-75 reproduction 1876 rifles?
