I picked this one up at the Greeley CGCA Show. The only thing special about it is the 26″ barrel.

Mod 1876 Third Model OB, FM CB 26″ 45-60 WCF 30844 1882

As of today almost 5% of the production are known and in the survey.  As stated earlier, these are surviving guns, not just information from the records.

The trend of standard guns continues.  Most of the guns sold were standard rifles or carbines with no extras.  Some of the very last guns assembled had seven leaf rear sights, Beach front sights, caliber .45-75.  I assume these were parts clean up guns.

I call myself a collector as it sounds better than hoarder

I am lucky to have this old girl – checkered, case hardened and 50 caliber.

And I’m glad you share your treasures with us, Burt. Interesting summary, Bill. I find it interesting that standard guns dominate the survey. Now I’m wondering about other models.
