Beautiful. Well done. What ballpark price range for that wood, if I may ask?

Well who's working on a Hunting load for this fall ? Anyone thinking about a Buffalo Hunt with a 45-75 . What about a Texas Hog Hunt ? Either way keep burning powder .

Looks cool to me. Normally I'm not fond of scopes on lever guns, but the Long Malcolm style scope is about as cool as can be.

Am I seeing it right, that the dust cover has been removed to mount the scope? Is that typical (I'm not too scope savvy).

That's right . You have to remove the dust cover . But you can put a scope on a 73 or 76 .

I've found that I can easily get 60 grains of 2f Olde E in my modern brass.  I did use a compression die, but the compression wasn't severe.  I was actually using a 350 grain bullet and was getting over 1,400 f.p.s. out of it.  I wasn't too impressed with the accuracy at 260 yards (mostly misses on a 10 inch steel plate), but reviewing the video showed that the shots were actually quite accurate--a spotter (if I'd had one) could have helped me adjust the sights, and I think I'd have rung that steel reliably.  As it was, the smoke obscured the target so much, that I had no idea where I was missing.  This is an older video I shot with only 720p.  You may want to FF through the talking.  My son, after viewing some of my youtube vids called me the "Gun Bob Ross".

You should be able to squeeze the groups down with that scope Rowdy . I can see a hog hunt about to happen , the 50/95 short rifle is up for this hunt . Dang thing carries so easy ,,,DT

Just wondering how the Hog Hunt went ? That big FIFTY has to be a FUN shooter . Makes me wish I had one . I need to get my 76 out , and plan a hunt for it . I have hunted with my 73 for the last few years with success . I guess it's time to bring my 76 back in the picture .

Thanks for all the post that has kept this interesting .

Hey Rowdy and Happy Fathers Day to Ya ! Naw the Thanks goes to you my friend for keeping the Vintage Hunting topic going.  The hog hunt was a lot of fun , had some fellows on the ranch hunting that had never hunted hogs before . That alone made for an exciting hunt. Plenty of hogs were seen , suprisingly more small piglets and choat's than normal. They are really multiplying . I did have a chance at some to small for the big 50 . One eve late I did get close enough to two big black boar's , but for whatever reason they decided to put some ground between us . Just as well , had the Mrs. with me and I had told her we were just going for a looksee!  Nothing to show for the 1876 50 cal. yet . Heat has slowed my drive for hunting as of late .  Will try again soon . ,,,DT

We all love the Vintage Hunting . These guns are a pure pleasure to work with . And when your at the table eating on a nice Steak that you harvested , it's as Good as it gets . Hope your big Fifty gets a few pigs and a Monster Buck during Deer season .

ROWDY! I love the saddle and '76 model photo! Love the saddle especially!! $800 seems like a steal and short wait time. It sure looks beautiful. The wood and checkering look especially nice as well. I've been holding on to two of my favorite saddles in the hope that I will be reunited with horses and riding in the not too distant future. One is a Doug Kidd Hope/Sam Stagg drover's saddle and I forget the other one but was handmade down in Front Royal/Winchester Va.
