So, here is my story:
My great Grampa was George W Peppin.  The so called "Corrupt Sheriff" of Lincoln County.  My Pa, George Peppin, inherited his Winchester saddle gun.  That ol' piece had George W Peppin engraved in the stock, and there 5 or 7 notches cut in the either the stock or the receiver.  I seem to remember it as an octagon barrel in .44 WCF. 

My little brother is named George too.  Well, when youngest George graduated from high school, my Pa gifted my brother with that ol saddle gun'with the stipulation that it must be passed down to the next George Peppin to graduate from high school.  The last I had seen it 'bout '02, my Mom's uncle was making a new toggle link cause the right hand link was broken. 

So, passes the years, my little brother says he doesn't want the thing clutterin'up his closet anymore so, he passes the rifle on to me to pass to my oldest boy who has a son named Isaiah George.  I got the rifle home last week thinking I would do some tinkerin' with it to maybe get it functional again the way I did with my Dad's old 1873 Springfield.  Well, I took it out of the blanket, and that is not the rifle I remember.

No engraving on the stock, this rifle here in front of me is an 1876 Winchester carbine with a full stock with a round barrel which doesn't have the caliber stamped in it and definitely no notches cut anywhere on it.

I tore the thing down, swabbed out the barrel - pitted badly, inside the action lots of crud - mud it looks like.  But, there is a handmade toggle link on the right side.

So, I am thinking someone swapped out the 1873 for a basket case 1876, swapped out a good toggle link in the '76 for the hand made link in the '73 knowning that my little brother wouldn't know the difference.

So, if y'all here of or, see such a piece, let me know.
