Hello francolt,

The standard barrel length for a Model 1876 Carbine was 22-inches.

I’m confused. I’m seeing two muskets, not carbines. ❓

GobblerForge, what you’re seeing are two ’76 SRCs, not muskets.

Francolt, I would think 24" carbine barrels are indeed rare, if factory original. The barrels on your guns extend longer farther beyond the forend cap than normal 22" bbl. carbines. At least they appear that way to me. I don’t have one here to compare.

Are Winchester factory letters available on these guns?

They are definitely special order SRCs. The only way that we can look them up is for you to provide us with the complete serial number.

Very interesting. I didn’t know that the carbines were long stocked like that.
Cool 😀

I don’t know if francolt was going to follow up on the 2 76 carbines so here is some info on them.

Interesting. The one was factory nickelled. I wonder what ‘lid’ means.

"Lid"
My guess would be the dust cover. The early 76’s did not have them and then they would be an option for a short period until they became standard.

It’s interesting that the nickel gun started life as an octagon barrel rifle, and was changed to a carbine before leaving the factory.

No mention of special barrel lengths on either one.
