Thanks! In order of favorites I like the 1894, 1892, and 1876. For now I only own 1894’s, in 30 WCF and 32 Win Special, but I’m now hot after a 38-55. I lean towards the rifle length, but own both rifles and

… The 50 caliber guns have always been hard to find and expensive, driven by availability and demand. The same situation exists with 50 caliber Model 1876's. When I downsized I was smart enough to keep one!

…and "guns-of-1883-yellowstone-prequel" is good for gun sales of old guns. The Tom Selleck movies, Quigley and Crossfir.e pushed Sharps and 1876 Winchesters values at the time. 1883 might spark new interest. T/R

…apologies to the board - I'm sure this subject has been beaten to death over the years.

I'm looking at a vintage 1919 Model 12 (SN 1876XX) that I've only seen a few photos of and I'm wondering if the ventilated rib is one that was put on by Winchester, or was a later Simmons add-on

…from customers?  I suppose it's possible he didn't write the letter but he did sign it.

I have wanted to add an 1880's catalog to my 1873 and 1876 rifle collection for years. It's even sweeter that this one belonged to a Winchester executive. 

Thank you all for a making this a most enjoyable

…to check with the manual to get pressures. Stick with Winchester original velocity for your gun when manufactured. 45-75 and 50-95 smokeless in a 1876 is tricky, not a lot of thickness to the metal around the chamber.

…That's a 3rd model receiver, maybe made after 1882, how does that get back to 1876 to be carried at the Little Big Horn. The butt stock could be a First model that came off a gun made before June 1876. Many Indians use their guns
