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 .45-75. 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.
Our reproduced 1876 stocks are designed to fit only early, original Winchester Model 1876 rifles, and are not intended for later, reproduced or reintroduced rifles. Despite rumors and claims to the contrary, these later models are not exact reproductions of early original Winchesters.
