Yrs. ago an old friend showed me a very special rifle a 28"Extra Heavy ( Buffalo Barrel )  1876 Winchester chambered in 45/75 wcf .  The first look at it said it had been very well used was all business and no show. To me it was the best looking 76 Winchester I had ever layed eyes on . Repaired stock blue worn down to the metal where it had been held , a true warrior  of the past .  Not long ago that rifle became my newest old 1876 .As soon as my old friend said it would soon be mine  ,  I called Bob at Winchester barrels , and ordered a new replacement duplicate barrel for it . The original has seen many , many  rounds through it and is tired . The new barrel is being built to exact dimensions and will  be mounted on the old rifle when it arrives.  I know Bob will do his magic building this Extra Heavy Barrel  and that the old rifle in 45/75 wcf will be an excellent shooter again. Will post some pics when I can . ,,,DT

Hey Cliff , hope your well.  This Extra Heavy barrel is not very common .  and I just could not re-line it . The new barrel that Winchester barrels  is making to replace it , will look like an original except with a new bore . Nothing during the fitting to the rifle will be altered. I'll keep the original barrel like it is for historical reasons . The old rifle is very sound and lock-up is tight , says somthing for the 1876 action  . It will be shot while its mine , and my old friend knew that .  I should get some long range fun out of the old 45/75 wcf . ,,,DT

Sounds like a wonderful acquisition.  I look forward to seeing it when you get it restored.
