Model 1876 Repeating Rifle
Essentially, a large version of the 1873. The Model 1876 was developed to handle more powerful cartridges. It incorporates several improvements over the M73 and is a much larger and stronger action. It was first chambered for .45-70. Later versions were available in .45-60, .50-95 Express, and .40-60 W.C.F. The 1876 made its debut in the summer of 1877. Less than 64,000 rifles were manufactured before it was dropped from the Winchester line in 1897.
