I'm finally IN !  Been looking for a '76 a long time.  Ended up with a Cimarron short rifle, 20" in 45/75.  Brass is on the way.  Huge grin on my face!

Really like the beef of these guns.  Big fan of the '86 but have to say I am getting a might partial to the '76 carbines and short rifles the more I play with this one.   Makes me want to buy another and chop it at 22".

This one came from Alaska a little beat up from handling and the gun safe I suspect, but seemingly unfired best as I can tell after having it apart.

Please add me to the Winchester 1876 Membership Roster.
I bought my 22" Uberti 45-60  from Texas Jack last month.
I am having fun shooting it. May use it for deer hunting once the rifle caliber is approved.
I now have a 1860, 1866, 1873 and the new 1876.
Here is a picture of my 1876.

Just ordered mine to go with my 73's! Being a 44-40 fan, I was not sure what caliber to get, so I chose 45-60 so I might be able to hunt deer in Ohio if they add it to the approved straight wall list someday. Can't wait to get it!

Uberti 1876 in 45-60, 28" barrel.  Fun to load and shoot.  Just need a better rear sight.  My eyes aren't what they once were.

I was feeling guilty about buying this gun, but after seeing so many proud members here, I feel vindicated.  Sign me up!  I just came home from the Allentown Gun Show with a Uberti '76, in .50-95 with 28" bbl.
I'm usually more of an antique military gun guy, and so is the dealer who was set up behind me at the show.  But he happened to have this '76 sitting on one of his tables, that he had taken in trade. I didn't pay much attention to it, until a lull in the show when I picked it up to stem the boredom.  Once I saw that big, .50 cal. muzzle, and hefted it to my shoulder to peer down that long, 28" barrel sight plane, I knew I wasn't going home without it.  I even got right on my phone and bought dies and brass then and there.  Can't wait to shoot it!

Congrats - you have yourself a fine rifle! May I suggest that you read the "loading data for the 50/95 WCF" thread to get off to a good start. Slug the bore before ordering bullets or a mold. That will save you a lot of aggravation.

Thank you.  I did indeed read that thread.  I was actually rather disappointed that guys were reporting results with 3" to 4" groups at 50 yards and expressing their satisfaction.  I would not consider that acceptable accuracy from any brand-new rifle.  Surely there are better loads to be found.  It also seems like guys are coddling this gun, and perhaps thinking about it too closely to an original.

There's an article by Ken Kempa in Guns & Ammo Jan. 2010 in which he tests various smokeless handloads, mostly using Barnes jacketed soft points ranging from 300 to 450 grains, at velocities ranging from about 1,360 to 2,120 fps., and getting 50-yard groups ranging from 2.25" to 0.75".  According to his calculations, none of these loads exceeds the recommended pressures for this gun or cartridge.  Of course, he's evaluating this rifle for its potential as a serious hunting rifle (with high marks to it for that), rather than for CAS shooting.  But if it can easily handle driving a 450-grain jacketed bullet at almost 1,600 fps, I don't see why some guys are getting so cautious about putting a few extra grains of Trail Boss or of 3F Swiss behind a 350-grain soft lead bullet.
