Special order Winchester 1876 Deluxe Rifle in .45-60 WCF made in 1882. Deluxe Winchester 1876's are quite rare, only about 150 were made, this rifle is all original as confirmed by the Winchester Museum staff by phone (we are waiting for the letter), it has a 28" Extra-Heavy Barrel, XXX Deluxe wood (and the tang is marked with the three X's), Checkered Pistolgrip Stock, Tang Sight and Beech folding front sight with Ivory bead, it still has the five piece cleaning rod in the stock. If this gun had a name perhaps it should be "Faded Glory", when it was new it must have been a stunning sight, now almost 130 years later it is still an impressive gun, it was a working gun somewhere and gave decades of service but it was never abused, it still has a fine bore and is in generally sound condition. The pictures give an honest depiction of the condition of this rifle, there are some cracks in the forend, the barrel retains much original blue with some speckling of the finish, there are traces of case colors on the hammer and receiver. If you have any questions feel free to call us, if there is some area not shown in the pictures we can e-mail additional pictures. As this rifle was made before 1898 it is an antique and can be shipped direct to the purchaser provided there are no local restrictions in your area.
