SOLD Excellent original 1876 carbine 45-60 mfg 1885

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

SOLD  Original 1876 Winchester 45-60 manufactured in 1885 , sn 56918.  It is in excellent working condition.  When I found this twenty years ago,  someone had been using it as a modern day hunting rifle as the barrel had been cut and the magazine cut to hold only 3 rounds.  I  installed a replacement magazine tube.  I matched the magazine tube to the patina of the barrel.  You would not know it is a replacement unless I told you.  I believe this gun is all original with the exception of the magazine tube assembly, and maybe  the wood.  The stock is in exceptional condition, so much so, that iI believe  it may have been replaced at some time.  I do not know, you be the judge.  The 22" barrel has strong rifling with no rust or pitting.  It will consistently hit a 16' plate at 100 yds with no problem, Original dust cover present,  and screws are in decent shape.   Markings are strong and sharp.  It has a sliding trap butt plate but no cleaning rod.  Nice patina on a beautiful old rifle.  Functions perfectly, I have shot this with Black Powder, trail boss, and reduced power smokeless loads.  Antique, $1500 shipped, will consider trade plus cash for Fn FAL/L1A1/R1A1  clone.

Is this still available? And I'm not sure of the rules here as I am a very new member, and I'm not even a member of SASS but I am still interested.

My post was not aimed at you, the responder said he "was not sure of the rules", I was merely pointing them out for him.

Hi Calvin, I remember shooting with you when you lived in Colorado.  I was a Lieutenant in 3rd ACR and later 4th ID back then and you were a Major in the SF.  Now I'm a Lieutenant Colonel in the Reserves.

 

THAT MEANS YOU GOT OLD!!!!  :):):):)

 

I can't afford the gun right now -- I just bought a horse for Mrs. Cassidy (hers died at 28), and we need to replace a deck.  I don't have any of the trade guns you listed that I want to get rid of, unless you're interested in something else.  

 

I just wanted to say hi.

It's a great rifle.  Seems alot of guns aren't selling at really good prices.  I'm going to post a nice original Marlin 1893 in 38-55 later today.

Didn't Tom Horn carry a 45-60?

Earlier in his career.  Guns aren't selling at good prices because so many are unemployed right now.
