Chapparal 45/60 after much money-new wood sights and tlc.

Doc, I know it did not come easy, but it looks like you finally have a very nice rifle there.  Great wood. Smiley

Cheers grizzly,yes a very nice shooter too which is the only reason i have persisted with it.I have won 3 different 200-300 yard competitions with it.At risk of seeming boastful I need to say that I have an Browning 1886 45/70 that was my best long range lever rifle but now is getting stiff competition for first place.Need to point out that the four chapparals i have hade the chance to slug the bores in all have slightly bigger bores than average 45's.needing projectiles sized at .459 for best results.Doc

That's a good piece of information.  Check out Leadhead's thread;

http://www.cascity.com/forumhall/index.php/topic,18104.0.html

Much has been made about which aspects of the Chaparral or Uberti are closest to the original.  FWIW, every single original I have ever heard of has been .457.

Welcome to the fire, Outlander. Smiley  Glad to hear you are pleased with your Chaparral 1876.  Are you reloading your ammunition, or having to purchase it?  How difficult is it to get in Germany?

Hy Grizzly Adams,
Thanks for the welcome. I invite my munition itself. Collets have looked at the buffalo ordered arms, and the accessories. In old germany is all so expensive.
We did not enjoy as open to deal with this hobby, the laws are somewhat different than in protecting the promised land (USA)  Grin
I need and search for data, I invite the time
N110 19,0-21,0 grs with 330grs bullet.
Have trail boss, but no dates?
My chaparral is revised, and with others in society scheckering. If I could get data, I would be very happy.

Best Regards,
Can be read, sorry Outlander

Sorry, I have never seen any Trailboss data for the 45-60. 

Have you seen this site?  http://www.chaparralarms.com/specs/calibers.htm


I am not familiar with the Kemira 110 powder, but, IMR 4198 seems to be working well for folks.

Many shooters are having good success with Accurate 5744.  Can you get it in Germany?   
Powder: Accurate - 5744
Bullet:  300-325
Start load: 22.0 grains (1250 1350 ft/p/sec)
Maximum load: 26.0 grains (1400 1500 Ft/p/sec).

Nice looking checkering on your rifle. Smiley

I picked up my new Cimarron 1876 today. OMG! It is beautiful! The wood is great, the color case hardening is great, the bluing is dark and rich. I'm impressed with the quality and workmanship. I can't wait to shoot it. Plus...get this along with the rifle I didn't just receive one, but two free bumper stickers. Actually they are probably the most expensive bumper stickers I own.  Grin

Hy,
I think I will buy the powder and taste. It is not a problem for us to get.
Trail boss had only taken because the full sleeve. Grs at 14.0, I thought I shoot an air rifle.
Little pressure, but I had no data, and therefore prefer to ask.
Voted for the schekering (Nussbaum) 400 - additionally paid. In the march get my dp scharps "boss" in .45-110 and I looked at the ingredients in buffalo ordered arms. I have made paper patch bullets to use. Undecided I hope there are a few recommended's.

I picked up my Uberti 1876 in 45-75 today will be mounting the pedersoli soule sight set on it as soon as the gunsmith bores out and retaps the top tang screw hole.  Also had to reverse the sight ladder so it would use the right notch in the base to keep it level.  Will take it shooting this weekend with the buckhorn though.

Interesting.   Is the top tang hole NOT metric?  Or is the pedersoli sight not metric.  I was planning on putting a tang sight on mine, but noted that the rear tang/stock screw is nowhere near what the tang sight comes with.  Very small in diameter. Undecided

I"m joining the group too. Should have my Uberti 1876 22" 45/60 by Monday evening. I'm also looking at a 50/95 28"" model Uberti, which I'll no doubt pick up, just because they look so cool. Beautiful guns - I'm gettin' ancy! Will post pics when in hand.  Grin

I finally got both guns in and took a few pics. Here's one of them side by side. The carbine is 45/60. The 28" model is in 50/95. One is a Cimarron and one is a Taylors, respectively. The only difference I see, other than bbl length of course, is the printing on the top and side of the barrel. I prefer the Cimarron model for that reason - but they are both nice!

 Still waiting for warmer weather and ammunition!

Very nice rifles there, brassmagnet!  I also have one of the Cimmie 76s in 45-60 with the short barrel.  Nice balance! 

That 50-95 should be a real hoot to shoot!  Hope your weather warms soon so you can go shoot those beauties! Wink

Thanks Grizzly Adams. The carbine is definately lighter and swings better on target. I thought they both balanced out very nice, and I almost like the longer barrel if time permits aiming longer.

These guns sure are sweet. Heavy, but sweet! I'll let ya' know how the 50/95 shoots when I get some ammo for it. I'll rate the "hoot" from 1-5!  Grin

Just a FYI. I talked with Cimarron this afternoon to see if they had received any shipments of the Centennial, and I was informed they do have some 45/75 models in stock again. Not sure how many, but I am sure it's minus one 'cause I jumped on one right away...another caliber to start accumulating data for  Roll Eyes

If yer' lookin' to get one, or were on the fence about it, mabe give em' a holler.............

While looking over the Shiloh website, I came accross this one. I Like old guns, especially Winchesters. I have a few of each, but I do have a real liking for the 1876. This was last weekend at the Kalispell gunshow in Montana...



This is one of my originals in action on the plains of eastern Montana...



Smaller game with the same rifle...



A picture of a rock pass in eastern Montana, with names and dates back into the late 1800's...



Bigger game with a Deluxe 40-60. One should go better heeled in persuit of animals of this size...



I have hunted and killed most types of Montana big game at one time or another with original Winchesters. I like the idea of this site, I think I will check in once and awhile.

Welcome to fire, Shrapnel, and thanks for posting the great pics! Smiley  Those are some beautiful rifles!  Looks like that deluxe 40-60 did just fine on that moose!

Drop in anytime and sit a spell! Smiley

Sign me up! I just added two Chaparral short rifles, one in 45-60 and one in 50-95 to my collection, and I can't wait to shoot them! The 76 has always been my favorite Winchester. I had two originals back in the 70's but had to let them go years ago. These will just have to do until, or if, I ever get another original.
