Winchester Model 1876 Rifle in .45-60. Factory letter for serial 21815 indicates it remains as originally shipped on 8/29/1882. Barrel is 26 inches long with bead front and elevation-adjustable rear sight. All markings appear to be correct. Fair bore. Metal finish is browning but strong. Forearm wood appears to have been sanded at some time. Stock wood has a number of scratches and impressions, and crescent butt (with trapdoor) is dinged at the bottom and lightly pitted along the top edge. Lever camps slightly left when closed. This rifle originates from the estate of Jack Parker, former President of the Boone and Crockett Club as well as Vice Chairman and Executive Officer of the General Electric Company (1968-1980). A lifelong hunter and conservationist, this offering is in keeping with his wishes that some of his firearms be used to further the Club's conservation efforts. Proceeds of this sale will be directed accordingly and the Club will provide written documentation of the rifle’s ownership history to the purchaser. The price is firm and a comprehensive photo package will be provided upon request. Layaway is available.
