Waiting for an endmill to be delivered before I can complete the side plate. Tig welded the lower tang portion that was missing. Spent a good bit of time with the file shaping the tang . The repair came out great . Now drill / countersink the lower tang stock screw and mill the recess in the tang for the lever lock.  Work on this project is about to come to a halt, until I return from this Hunting trip a couple wks or so. ,,DT

Finished with the side cover. One job i have been putting off ( heat treating and tempering) the old loading gate spring-cover. That old thing is paper thin and they are rare as hens teeth!  Just about finished polishing it . Well it's got to be done one way or another. Will soon find out how my luck is running! Waiting on small parts a few springs and screws. When they arrive will put all this pile of parts together . The part i like the most is assembly and final fitting , like watching a gun come alive from a pile of parts. Pic's when there is somthing worth showing.,,,,DT

          This is the tang before  the repair and after . Picture of the tang repair . Now need drill hole/ counter- bore for stock-screw, and lever lock. The homemade side cover . Used old steel in order to match the old rifle , came out prety close , just as old and beat-up as the rest . Need drill the side cover screw hole , and trim the outside down just a tad. ,,DT

Thank You Slamfire. Wood work is most complete. Need final sanding , then start stain and oil finish . All internals are installed ,fitted and working smooth. Headspace is snug with just a small resistance on closing on the Jammison 45/60 brass. Will not close on trimmed 45/70 brass. Just right! Had to make a trigger return spring the old one was very light.  Forged the new one from an old piece of bedspring coil . Makes great small springs! Next step will be on the lathe making the button cap for the half mag and cutting down the magazine tube . Waiting on the rear folding barrel sight to come in. Will use an old Marbles # 3 i think for the front and a folding Lyman tang for the rear. After a range test will take apart for metal polish and re-blue. Tried a new blueing method on the forend cap and like it . Will post more when further down the road .           ( Correction the front sight is a  Marbles # 6 ) ,,DT

Thank's to all, for the words of encouragement.  So far this project has been fun and the parts are not just sitting in a box . If anything they are all in one place now. If there is some time for the project between Grandson's baseball games this wknd. Will get started on the magazine plug and follower.  Had two pieces of original 1876 magazine tube , soldered them together for this project , instead of using the remanufactured tube that has been pictured. Yep I'm a bit that way! ,,, Y'all have a fine wknd. ,,,DT

Dusty, your carbine project is amazing!!! Your skill level and patients far exceeds mine. You'll be happy to hear after a lot of procrastination and car and truck projects, I just got my 1876 finally put together. I just can't find where I put my forend cap screws lol. Thank you for your help with my barrel!

Trapped inside today ( Tropical Storm ) Bunch of rain!!! ,,, Made the best of it , cut a copy Of a Type 8 Magazine button Lapped the bore of the project gun with a poured lead slug and Extra fine compound . The old bore brightened up and still slugs a tight .458 . When the rain stops , have a few target loads used in another 76 . They should be just fine for testing the little carbine / short rifle  combo.  Hope Y'all had a better day than I did . ,,,DT

Mr. Dusty sounds like a good day for being trapped inside!!  Enjoy the updates on the project, keep em coming!!

On a different note, I have been trying for weeks to get out and run a few through the 45-75 myself.  If anyone mapped out just how busy I  would be in 'retirement', would never have believed them!!

Thanks again for sharing the updates!!!
