60 rounds through the 50 Express rifle this morning. Cleaned  after every 5 shot's. My way of burnishing in a new barrel. Cleanup was easy and no trace of leading. The load that is working best is a 300gr. rnfp .510 dia .  Lubed with deer tallow/wax/olive oil .Jammison case filled with 84gr. 2ff Swiss Bp. Winchester primer , roll crimp. This Express rifle weigh's in at 7lb. 2 oz. With that load is has a wallop on both ends. Not a target rifle but sure nuff ' a hunting rifle. ,,,DT

Have to give a Good Word for( Winchesterbarrels .com) . They did a great job on my 50/95 wcf rebarrel. The more the old 76 with the new barrel is shot the better it shoots. Dont think that I have a barrel that cleans-up faster than the big fifty. To date the old 76 has yet to take game . It has been lifted a time or two on feral hog , but the right one has not presented itself so far. There are three giant wild spanish goats that came very close to stopping one of the big fifties bullets . But for being late in the day and a long drag out saved them ,  and me an exciting evening.  Sooner or later the right big boar will present himself , and the 50/95 will be blooded. ,,,DT

I had an opportunity to take a photograph of the dust cover of the Uberti Winchester 1876, with the .50 calibre express roll stamping by Mike Hunter. The quality of the work is truly superb.

The lettering is not actually “white”. I used an LED light to highlight the text for clarity. The specks are just dust that was also highlighted.

Winchester Bob furnished  a very good copy of the Express dust cover , fit perfect and with a bit of rubbing back it looks like it has been on the rifle for ever. I have been shooting the Big  50 Express enough  to really get used to it . A few days ago helping a client hunter track a Wt. buck he had wounded ,I was carrying the Express rifle , the wounded buck jumped about 60yd. out in front of us and I had the only shot opportunity. The 510300 Jim bullet and 84 gr. of Swiss FF hit him square in the shoulder . He was on the move when the bullet struck and he flipped end over end and never moved . A complete pass through , big hole going in and bigger coming out .  Looked over at my hunter and his mouth was hanging open , he was very impressed . Back at camp that night the big 50 was all the talk . I like this 76 " ,,,,,DT

a properly marked dust cover just makes all the difference! i had a friend do my Ubertie cover on his cnc mill, i provided the font. every time i pick up the rifle my eyes just gravitate to the cover....way cool!

Yep !!!   I agree 100%   I found a unmarked brass lifter and purchased a set of stamps that are real close to the font used on the 76 . Have been practicing  on some scrap brass . Will mark the lifter 50-95 when I get a bit more confidence . ,,DT

yes i need to mark my lifter too. i will cut it with a hand engraver in the script style. the original uberti 50-95 etching was so light, (and ugly) i just polished it off.

Kwilliams1876                                                                                                                                                                                 What I am seeing using the stamp set that I have , I don't like . I just ordered another stamp set , that looks like it may be what is needed 3/32" set old style font . If not its back to the drawing board.    I contacted two gun engravers , neither was interested in the job. Guess its to small of a job.  ,,,DT

i believe that 3/32"  is on the small side for the font height? not sure, don't have a original to measure. stamping over the thin web might require a steel insert so as not to distort the flat? dunno for sure. i would find a local gun engraver to cut the script, that i think would be cheaper than buying a set of the script font stamps. we have a couple of engravers that show up at gun shows here in montana, i would think that cutting 4 characters would be a easy thing to do. give them a photo copy to follow.

KW1876 the numbers on the originals measure roughly 1/8" top to bottom , that's on a heavy lean . When I use a 1/8" stamp the numbers look way to big. The set of 3/32" I have coming will be used on a barrel project or two that are in the works. So if they don't look right they will still serve me a purpose , I think in order for the lifter to look right I'll have to find an engraver for the job.  The two I ask said no in a nice way .  Or just leave it slick.  ,,,DT

dug into my "digital ref. library" and found close ups of the 50-95 scripts. using my engineering proportional dividers set on the known dimension of the elevator width...(0.820") the scripts size appears to be 0.150" tall on 2 different rifles. measuring a tipped or tilted photograph would only lesson the dimension, never increasing it.  one of the rifles had a exquisite photo from James Julia auction site.
the dividers are a life savers when recreating parts for the old guns.
