…  today I used my 1880 Type 2 .40-60 WCF tool to load 30 rounds for my 1892 vintage Model 1876 rifle.  It worked perfectly.  The companion 1878 type 4 mold was used to drop the 210 grain bullets.  I could only get 50 grains of Goex cartridge

1879 was when Winchester added the 45-60 and 50-95, so it stands to reason that is when they started marking the caliber.

  The Porter research indicates 5, 36" 1895 models. Now I have seen a picture of one

… "older the better" helps define what is most, "collectable."  Additionally the, "rarer the better" can apply.  Applying these two factors, a M1876 is more collectable than a M1894.  

I have never owned a Henry rifle but I consider them highly collectable. 

Another factor is what is

Based on the sheer numbers manufactured & available, I would put the 1892 and 1894 before the 1876 and Single Shots. I also believe that there are more Model 1873 collectors than there are 1876 collectors.

…do with it as well.

I sometimes find a rifle with only two inches longer than standard in barrel length. For example, a 26 inch 1873 or 30 inch 1876.  Makes me wonder why they even bothered.   

A 32 inch 1886 is a pretty good add on in length over standard.  Maybe those old time shooters

…to hear your 1876 was damaged in shipment.  There is a stock for sale on eBay now.  I don't have a dog in the fight, just listing it because you asked.  Stocks off…

…etc.  There was a lot of hand fitting that went into these old Winchester rifles.  

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=winchester+model+1876&_sop=10

From what I can tell, your 1876 SN 46021 was made in 1885.  

…60 was restored by Bob Knapp more than ten years ago. He made new links,  pairs, some refer to as toggles or shell lifters for 1873 .44-40,  & 1876 .45-60. Also adding new link mounting pins, magazine tube and spring and screws to both rifles. Black powder was very corrosive to parts and rust

…Bert said, its not a matter of "who" done it, rather more of a "what does it mean" question. 

That "CF" marking is found on 1873, 1876, 1885, 1886, 1892, 1894 models, likely the 1895 as well.  Not aware of the "CF" marking used outside those models but that doesnt mean it wasnt used

…Model 1881 rifle was a great leap forward but never really threatened Winchester's sales.  The Model 1881 was a fine rifle but the Winchester Models 1876 and later 1886 simply outsold it.

All that being said, I think the Winchester rifles are better looking than the contemporary Marlin guns.

…  I displayed my 1876s at Cody and then at the NRA convention in Dallas.  One of the items displayed was my 1868 musket, serial number 18, and I had a .46 OFW cartridge…

…an early bidder on the one at Wards Auction until the price got beyond what I was willing to pay.  As further info, if you look into the book on the 1876 by Houze, you will see serial number 18 pictured, plus he comments that the 1868 musket led to development of both the 1873 and the 1876.  Tim

…were apparently built to use the .46 O.F. Winchester cartridge.  These trial rifles are illustrated in Herbert Houze's book "The Winchester Model 1876 Rifle."  According to Houze, the design that later became the Model 1876 predated that of the Model 1873.  

Houze says that the design that…

…became the Model 1876 was delayed for almost eight years due to the slow development of a reliable, reloadable large bore cartridge.  The .46 O.F.W. cartridge was…

…to develop the large bore cartridge.

The sample deluxe Model 75 was the rifle exhibited at the Centennial exhibition in Philadelphia during 1876.

…Winchester Collectors never even saw one or knew it existed. Now the kicker! You missed out on one that was for sale a few years ago attached to a 1876 English proofed 22" Short Rifle in 40-60 WCF, also a rare bird. Most of the "Tire Kickers" on the WACA Forum never even knew the front sight

… Someone figured it was worth bidding up the price.

During it's time of manufacture (1880-84) it could have been installed on the 1866, 1873 or 1876.  I suppose it's possible one might have been installed on a sporting version of the Hotchkiss.

…identical to the Beach combination sight.  These are different than the Winchester combination sight that is for sale on eBay and is on the 1876 that Win4575 mentioned.  

The Winchester combination front sight was only in the catalog for a few years.  Gordon in his 1873 book mentions 1880
