Answering the demand of big-game hunters, Winchester set out to produce a heftier version of their already-popular Model 1873. Introduced to celebrate the American Centennial Exposition, the new Model 1876 quickly earned a reputation as an effective big-game hunting rifle.

Originally chambered for Winchester’s new .45-75 Winchester Centennial cartridge (mimicking .45-70 ballistics in a shorter case in order to accommodate the 76’s toggle-link action receiver), versions in .40-60 Winchester, .45-60 Winchester and .50-95 Winchester eventually became available. Our restored example sports the latter chambering, which was known to be popular among professional buffalo hunters of the day.
