This Rifle WILL NOT fire or chamber .45-70 Government caliber cartridges. Ammunition is readily available from Ten X Ammunition Company. Here is an attractively and faithfully executed tribute to the Winchester model of 1876, known in its day simply as the Centennial. The model commemorated our Nation’s Centennial Year, and variants of it served with the Canadian Mounted Police, with the Texas Rangers, and even with Geronimo and his Apache warriors. Photos show a specimen from a small lot we got on an importer closeout, a 26 inch Octagonal Barrel Carbine chambered in the classic .45-75 Winchester Caliber. This is not, mind you, a .45-70 and it will not chamber .45-70 rounds. The 1876 marketing forte of this rifle’s caliber was, however, that it could produce the same ballistics as the .45-70 Government with a shorter case and higher capacity. Manufacturer was Chaparral Arms, an Italian based company with relations to two great companies, Charter Arms and Armi San Marco. Action and receiver are, as the photos show, strikingly similar to the 1873 model, only much more massively constructed. This well balanced rifle weighs in at only 9 pounds 6 ounces, and its center of gravity is the juncture between the rear sight and the receiver, exactly where it’s supposed to be. Barrel is nicely blued with a hint of purplish hue, marking is Chaparral ~ Repeating Arms / King’s Improvement Patented March 29, 1866, October 16, 1860, in front of the traditional set-screw anchored dovetailed calibrated 1100 yard military type rear sight, with the words Cal .45-75 behind the sight elevator. Importer was Tri-Star of Kansas City, so marked on the 2 o’clock barrel flat. On the bottom of the receiver beneath the Italicized serial number is W 76 2412 ; Cat. 16064. Upper tang is marked Model 1876. The 10 shot magazine tube, like the barrel, screws, trigger, dust cover, and lever locking key are blue steel; and the receiver, forend cap, lever, hammer, and buttplate are color casehardened steel. Shell carrier mechanism and ammunition storage plate on the buttplate are solid brass, and the carrier of course mates at the bottom of the receiver. Forend and buttstock are Italian walnut with occasional shelfwear creases like the photo specimen shows only one of, on the left side of its buttstock. This rifle and its handful of identical mates have been displayed, but never loaded, fired, or transferred; they are in their original boxes with all their papers. We only have a handful of them. Similar Italian-made rifles from competitors Uberti and Navy Arms command prices upwards of $1000 - $1500 per unit. Ammunition is widely available throughout the country from notable companies like Ten-X. We have not been able to offer any quality 1873, 1876 or Henry type rifles in this price range for many years, not since the 1970s. We’re offering these beautiful rifles, the rifle in the photo or one of its identical mates, each for only $ 739.00. 2% discount if payment is by USPS Money Order and not credit card. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $20 flat fee lower 48 states; $60 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, UPS Ground or USPS Priority with full insurance coverage.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
