I agree with TwoBit, if you want real honest opinions some photos and the letter would get the ball rolling. Otherwise everything is very hypothetical.

It would be like me asking what everyone thought of my Model 1876 takedown carbine? Oh and Its got lots of good bluing! We need a little more to go on.

Sincerely,
Maverick

Generally if it letters, Winchester made it but there are errors in the ledgers so its possible someone found a odd entry and made the gun to match. Did you look in the Jim Gordon book to see if he saw that? He spent a lot of time going through the ledgers looking for unusual guns. He missed some.. He missed the extra heavy 73 in 22 extra long.

So your the one with the takedown 76? Laugh Unless there is another one. I can’t remember if it was a carbine or rifle but, I saw somewhere that Turnbull made a TD 76. He also made a TD 86 carbine.

Well so much for this thread! I guess someone didn’t like where it was going?

Would of been nice to see a picture of the 73 carbine with a octagon barrel.

I agree. Which is probably why they never made any? Just like takedown 76 carbines. Wink

POOF!!! And they slither away in the dark of night!!!

It is a good thing that 1892 carbines were made with octagon barrels. That is why they are worth so much more!
