…Darrin,

 I have found these three books very helpful in my attempt to understand the 1876 Model.

The Winchester model 1876 Centennial Rifle by Herbert Houze

 Winchester's Northwest Mounted Police Carbines And Other Model 1876 Data by Lewis Yearout

…you Bob,

I suspected that after I looked at some other early 1873 letters. I was not sure however when or what the subsequent calibers were for 1876's.

The 45-60 was being produced while your gun was made. The 73's didn't even caliber mark the guns even when the other caliber

…thread, I'll ask this question here. The letter that came with this rifle is dated 2004 and says the rifle was received in the warehouse Sept. 19, 1876. I have read here that the CFM started adding the SNA date to letters a couple of years later. Was that just a change in terminology, or would the

… long ago,  East Indian School road in Phoenix had many old gun stores.   My favorite was Billy The Kid gun shop.  Bought a beautiful 1876 Winchester carbine and several old boxes of collector ammo.

…you could fire this rifle if desired.

If you desire a rifle from the Frontier era, the Model 1886 is an okay choice, but the Models 1866, 1873, or 1876 are better choices.  A Model 1873 would be the most common and most affordable of these three choices.

…add to the discussion I found this photo of a sight on an 1876 carbine.  Note the graduations here are different again.  It is marked 1876 which according to Madis means the model of sight, not the gun it was intended for.  I am a bit doubtful about that.

…sight book but didn't see any references to leaf graduations.  There is one on eBay now.  

It appears this sight was available on the 1866, 1873, 1876, 1886, 1892, 1894 and probably any model on request.

Did Winchester change the graduations over the years, or did they change for different models

…?   Serial numbers below 63,000 would be special interest to me.  I am interested in surviving guns.   I am ankle deep in alligators with the Model 1876 survey so I don't want to start another one. 

Thanks to all !

I see no "Spanish sight" ladder in meters, but it seems 1876 NWMP had 48A sights, not 44A one.

So, I can't say if 44A French contract sights had previously equipped another Winchester model.

…. In less than two years, and after making only 136 Model 1873 “One of One Thousand” rifles, eight Model 1873 “One of One Hundred” rifles, 53 Model 1876 “One of One Thousand” rifles, and eight Model 1876 “One of One Hundred” rifles, Winchester dropped these monikers.

There were one or two of these

It would be graduate in METERS.

My focus is to try to establish if these sights are identical to those of the 1894 carbine

…-hardening.  This seems to have been the case even if upgraded wood was not requested.  

From my own experience I have seen this on 1873's and 1876's.  Was it common as well on other models that got case-hardening as an "extra" feature?  I know the early 1886's had case-hardening on the

The problem is the gun does not letter as a 50 but 45-75.

Did Winchester chamber any 1876 SRC’s in 50-95? Letter says “Rifle” and octagon barrel. Strike three.

…(Plating = #11, Color or cased Finish #23, etc.)  We know the "CF" on lower tangs occurs on both color case hardened and blued guns (1973, 1876, 1886) and on blued guns (1892, 1894, and would expect the same for color case hardened 1892's or 1894's).  So the "CF" we see on the lower tang…

…see in the photos it had some rusting and has been cleaned.  The lower tang and receiver finish whether CCH or blued should match. 

As for the 1876 with the 1937 stamped on the lower tang, dont know there would be a correlation between the two.

As a matter of fact there is a famous photo of a young TR in buckskins holding what appears to be an 1876 and a dagger stuffed in his cartridge belt in the 1909 book I mentioned above. The other photo sounds familiar but I may be confusing it with this
