Thought I would post a pic. of my 1876 Winchester circa 1884. The old rifle has its original 28″ oct. barrel.Cal. 45/60wcf,has a Winchester Mid range tang at rear. A Sporting leaf rear barrel sight and a old Beaches style up front. This old rifle is not a safe queen it makes trips to the range very often .All loads for this rifle are black powder and bullets from the original Winchester mold.The old 76 can still hold it’s own at the 300yd. range if I can hold my own!,,,,,DT.<img src="http://s1289.photobucket.com/user/TheDustyTexian/media/1876wintarget4560wcfjpg_zpsb4530b42.jpg.html

Such a nice rifle should be able to be seen. I downloaded your photo and changed the gamma a little to show more detail. The combo of a black and brown rifle on a white background was to much for the exposure range of your camera and the photo was very under exposed (settings were over powered by the WHITE truck bed.
