…I also have a Replica of the MAY 1878 Catalog. Thanks for the offer but I'm looking for the MARCH 1878 catalog!

…have a replica of the MAY 1878 catalog issued in 1966 by the Olin Mathison Chemical Corporation. And a while back I purchased Cornell's "January 1876 Catalog." Which I don't know where they got that date from, or who supplied it to them. As it is an exact copy, and I mean exact with no changes…

…whatsoever, of the 1875 Catalog shown in Vol. 1 of the 1991 Armory Publications 10 Volume Set. Which in my opinion Cornell's can not be a January 1876 Catalog as on page 61 it shows the 1874 Reloading Tool and not the 1875 Reloading Tool. 

There is a 1st Issue & a 2nd Issue of the 1875…

…Catalog. 1st Issue shows the 1874 Tool, and 2nd Issue shows the 1875 Tool.

Gentlemen to be clear I'm looking for the Winchester 1876, 1877, and/or March 1878 Catalogs. Which are noted as having been made by Ron Stadt in a series of articles in our very own WACA Collector Magazine…

…the catalogs.

On page 24 of the Spring 1985 Collector his article lists all three of these Catalogs as been made by Winchester. He notes the "1876 catalog", the "1877 Catalog Revised price list March 1, first to list Model 1876", and "March 1, 1878 Catalog 50 pages Replica Exists".

…When it comes to the 1876, only 783 were half octagon according to the Houze Book. This might have something to do with balance, the big receiver being heavy and a lighten…

 I have a very nice 1876 deluxe with a half octagon and half magazine, every time I displayed it several collectors would comment, "to bad it isn't full octagon and full mag"

…. But any 1876 round barrel forearm cap will do. John can weld up and machine one to make it for a captured button magazine.

…US Mail lost it when it arrived to John’s hometown. It’s been 3 weeks and they say it’s unlikely it’ll be found. 

So, I need a forearm cap for a 1876 round barrel. If you have one, know where one is, think you saw one somewhere, please let me know.

Chuck,  First I DO NOT take your comments wrong.  Not a problem.  I would like to relate a short story I think you would enjoy, though.  I had my 1876 display at the NRA Convention in Dallas in 2018.  One item was an 1876 with the side plates removed to show the workings of its internals.  There

…of hunters, I don't recall anyone hunting with an octagon barreled rifle.  Not that older rifles weren't used.  I recall a great uncle who used a M1876 in .40-60.  It had a round barrel that was cut down to about 22 inches.  Even though from a collector perspective this was very unfortunate (the

…personal observations on this rifle.  I'm  certain that the wood, barrel and tube are 100% correct.  Ed Lewis states in his book that there were 22 1876 1 of 1000 rifles shipped in .45-60 caliber.  My guess is that the receiver on the original 1 of 1000 had been in some way damaged and a new

…the needed information. Interestingly Mr. Hall responds to Mr. Hinckley on July 27,1954 saying the factory records showed no indication that Model 1876 serial number 32642 was marked "One of One Thousand" and stated he personally knew of two other rifles that were authentically marked One of One

…warranted.

But I'd say from all outward appearances that the barrel looks like it is a genuine engraving. So what you likely have, was a original 1876-1877 made rifle that was a 1of1000 and took a hell of a roll from horse back in 1883 (or whenever), breaks the receiver at the top and bottom

… hundreds of thousands of dollars on fakes and cobbled together rubbish.

This was the basis for my request, I picked up some books to research my 1876, and found it to be lacking/missing data in some aspects, and wrong in others. While all books will contain some errors, having a wider library
