…$275 CAD shipped. (That's both, not each)

Amazon listed them each at about $250 - $300 USD.

Another WACA member sold me Herbert Houze's 1876 book for $50 CAD

I was very grateful for this fair treatment.

In the past 25 years I've bought and sold over 1000 books as I've built up and

…than I ever hope to know. Robert Renneberg knows as much about the Model 94 as any man alive and he’s still researching. Not much into the 1873 and 1876 but if I were I’d probably invest in Arthur Pirkle’s book. I’ve enjoyed Ned Schwing’s books on slide action .22’s and I’d be lost without Larry

…like to know how production and inventory and control worked in the early years. 

Then, I’d like to find sources of information on the 1873 and 1876, beyond the superficial, but also peered reviewed. 

Some books I have purchased, like Herbert Houze’s book on the 1876, it contains good

I got a moose permit here in Montana for this fall, now I need to decide which gun I should use. Last moose was an original 1876 deluxe in 40-60, this year I am thinking more big bore...

  

I’ve harvested 8 Moose over the yrs. My choice would be the 86,

Chuck - what photo are you referring to?  I'm not seeing any Marlins.  In the most recent photo he posts, there are two M1876 Winchesters, a Whitney-Kennedy SRC and a Winchester M1886 SRC.  All very fine pieces of course.  

Steve, you're right.  I didn't realize that

…them on the M1895 .405's more than anything.  Also I've seen them on several .50 caliber M1886's.  I'm not recalling seeing any on M1873's or M1876's.  A couple on M1894's.  Off the top of my head I can't think of seeing one on a M1892 but I'll bet Michael has seen them.

…the Butt Plates to the 86,85,92,94 and made the 86 stocks smaller which became standard then.

As well the early 86 butt plates were the same as the 1876 with a turned down toe and heavier stocks.

Good information for any 1886 collectors. Appreciate the replies Chuck.

…on the permit! I’m torn between the 1895 and the 1886 on the far right of that pic but can’t rule out the rifles to the right of the 1876’s. Care to tell us a bit more about them? I don’t see the Deluxe 1876 in the pics so will assume that’s no longer an option.

However by, "special order" I meant that if you were to order any M1876 (including the 50-95), if you wanted a half-magazine, you had to tell the factory that (i.e. special order it that way). 

That's right-…

…carbine in .30 WCF - and mentioned nothing else, they would ship the standard offering (with full magazine and carbine butt).

Back to the M1876, I suspect that if a buyer ordered one in .50-95 and offered no other instructions, that rifle would arrive with a 26 inch barrel.  Any other

I would stick to my comment that the vast majority of M1876's have full magazines.  As you point out, this is not so true of those chambered in 50-95.  However by, "special order" I meant that if you were…

The M1876 routinely came with a full magazine.  A half magazine would have been special order.  The vast majority of M1876's that were made had full magazines.

"CONDITION: Excellent overall. 95% original thinning blue on barrel." Don't know about the rest of you, but in my opinion calling this 1876 condition "Excellent" is a stretch. 

Not sure I buy the grizzly story crudely scratched in the stock. I would consider this a negative without

My 1876 SN is 59xxx and this too dates to 1886, but the factory letter says it was changed in 1888 at the factory from 50-95 to 45-60 and shipped 2 days

…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

…or so guns.  I have not seen any other ledgers to account for the other 40 guns and how the ledgers show them.  According to the Factory ledgers no 1876 One of One Thousand was noted passed Serial #10096.  If you want to know more buy Ed Lewis' book on the 1 of 100's and 1 of 1000's or Herbert Houze

A M1876 in .50-95 always catches my attention.  Here is one with a special order magazine and it has a nice amount of case color.  It's really pretty
