…models are only letterable for the first part of production so nobody knows.

  The 1886 according to the William Porter research is 60.

  The 1876 is 12 according to Herbert Houze.

  The 1873 records have not been completely surveyed so who knows.

  The 1866 records are not complete, most

….  This time the letter read it being both received in warehouse and shipped in October 1887, eleven years prior the end of production for the Mod. 1876.  Author H. Houze in his very interesting 'The Centennial' book clearly states that even if end of production is always showed as 1898, actual

…Whitney Kennedy rifle's that were chambered for the 40-60 wcf used the same Winchester cartridge as the 1876 Winchester 40-60 wcf . Not saying your rifle is safe to shoot the loads you are referring to , but just for a comparison    . I have and shoot…

…need to replace an extractor on an 1876 rifle.  I know the steps to get the breechbolt removed.  The tricky part may be removing (knocking out) the extractor retaining pin.  I assume…

…from sliding out.  If possible I would like to re-use the pin.  Any recommendations?

I believe the process would be the same for 1866, 1873 or 1876 rifles.  Not sure about the later ones.

Is it worth emailing him, or will that just annoy him?

…read through again.  

It reminds me about the confusion that often occurs with the .40-60.  There's the .40-60 WCF that was chambered in the M1876 Winchester, Whitney-Kennedy rifles and others.  The Marlin .40-60 version chambered in the M1881 was interchangeable with the M1876 Winchester. …

…case. 

There's an amazing number of cartridges that are covered by approximate three case lengths.

Not an inclusive list:

The Winchester M1876 series (all of these were available in the Whitney-Kennedy):

.40-60, .45-60, .45-75 and .50-95

The Winchester M1886 series (all of…

…-100, .50-110

(.the .33 WCF is an outlier).

The Colt Lightning Express rifle chambered two different case length cartridges.  From the M1876 Winchester offering, the Lightning Express rifle came in .45-60 and .50-95.  From the M1886 series, the Lightning Express rifle came in .38-56

…obsolete cartridges is a hobby of mine.  I recently took on the old .40-60 WCF using black powder for use in an original Winchester Model 1876 rifle.

I had some resized WW 45-70 brass in my stash that I got from Buffalo Arms years ago.  I recently found some Jamison .40-60 brass so

…video.  It's a lost art being able to work on these set triggers. 

I can't imagine how hard it would be to work on an 1876 set trigger since the lower tang is integral with the receiver.  On a complete gun you would have the barrel as well.

Also, I seem to recall that…

…most of the set trigger parts are the same for 1873 and 1876.  Obviously not hammer, but most of the "fiddly bits."  I also recall that some of these parts changed from 1st to 2nd generation.  I have no clue
