Winchester 1876 Deluxe .50 Express, 1881, engraved, letter, 26-inch round, shotgun butt plate  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Pre-1899 Lever
Description: Winchester Model 1876 Deluxe .50 Express (.50-95) with Cody letter. Made in 1881, serial number 19556 features a 26-inch round barrel with beaded front sight, elevator rear sight, half magazine, color case action, pistol grip with ebony inlay, sling loops and a checkered shotgun butt plate with widow's peak. The wood is exceptional, both forearm and butt shot through with a dynamic sunburst of dark grain graced with fine wrap-around bordered checkering. LETTER: Dated 7/19/99, the Cody letter list most features, then adds the comment "see order for balance". ENGRAVING: Not referenced in the letter, what appears to be factory engraving highlights the forearm cap, sides and rear of the hammer, and sides and bottom of the lever. MARKINGS: A "P" and "123" appear on the underside of the barrel (under the forearm wood). Of note, there are no proof marks in this area to indicate the rifle was shipped to India or Africa. Also hidden, the front of the action has a mark best described as a "T" inside a "W". "Winchester Repeating Arms New Haven CT" and "King's-Improvement-Patented (and dates)" appear as two lines within the full-length matting on top of the barrel. "50" and "Cal." appear on opposite sides of the matting at the base of the barrel. "Winchester Express" and ".50 Cal. 95 Grains" appear in two lines on the sliding dust cover, and "50-95" is engraved on the bottom of the carrier. "Model 1876" appears on the tang and the serial number is just below the lever lock. CONDITION: Engraving and markings are sharp. The bore is browning with a light scattering of roughness, but remains wonderfully viable. Barrel blue has thinned to about 40 percent, with some areas of surface roughness toward the muzzle. Action colors have browned to about 30 percent, yet the surface is absent any significant flaws. The lever locks up tight and the action operates with authority. Checkering shows minimal flattening and wood finish is both uniform and strong. Both stock and forearm have a scattering of small nicks and impressions. The stock as a small hairline of about .25-inch on the pistol grip between the tang and the grip's ebony inlay. The butt plate is without issue. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.8 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.75 inches. INCLUSIONS: Cody letter and photocopy of order book sheet. The price is firm and layaway is available. A complete photo package is available by request (include direct email address).
