Hope mine looks half as good as that when it arrives. Bought it yesterday, waiting on shipping. Hopefully be here next week! Discovered finding brass & bullets is some work. I will be reloading for it.

Hot Dog, it arrived! It's better than I hoped for - pretty sure it's brand new! Now search for some very light duty loads to start off with. Don't think there's 45-75 snap caps to test the action and trigger pull  Smiley

Hello pards,

this is my Chappie made in 2006. What do you think - is this artifical wood or is it just a nice woodstock i got?

Concerning the toogle links - for me they look because of the design stronger than other designs - what do you think.

And suprice my Lyman no2 from my 1873 fits concerning my thumb better than the special ordered 1876 no2 sight Huh

Greetings
Tom

Here are two Uberti Model 76 Winchesters. The top one is mine, in .50/95, while the bottom rifle is my brother's in .45/60. Both are good shooting rifles.

Built a wooden case for it.

Yes - you are correct, I need a wooden case for the rifle, so it sits straight up and down. I also need one for my Sharps.  My brother built one for his Sharps and it is a super case, giving total protection to the rifle and sights.

It was hard finding brass hardware that wasn't garbage. The latches are garbage, hopefully they can be replaced with some old ones. The brass corner protectors came from ebay, along with the lock and recessed folding handle - which is also brass. real brass, not the brass plated then coated potmetal. Added an internal support that the rifle sides under, and a coin recessed in to the top. The cheap brass screws will be replaced with some older ones - this modern "brass" won't tarnish even if you strip off the clear coat.

Case is getting "aged" to make it look old.

Thanks! Not sure why the pictures don't show larger - and then when you open them up they flip upside-down!?

Greetings All,
I joined sometime ago with a Uberti/Cimarron NWMP Carbine in .45-75 but waited to post photos until I had the chance to refinish the wood.  Well as often happens time marches on.....
Finally have gotten around to it and here are the results.  She has a really pretty piece of wood and with some orange/citrus stripper and some judicious removal I obtained the results I wanted.
I was able to locate a Chaparral Spanish Meter sight from Numrich and will eventually finish that and install.  It doens't have the range  markings, but I'm thinking of having an engraver copy the numerals from original photos.   In the meantime I'm having fun! 
Cheers,
Garret
