The Winchester Model 1876 / Re: I really need a 1876 mag tube?
« Last post by dusty texian on Today at 05:55:36 AM »
$20 was shipping.  But still they aint giving them away :)   Closer today than yesterday.  Thanks again Dusty.

                                    Your welcome hope it works out for you ( Keep W W Grainger ) in mind when looking for almost any kind of stock material  . That is a beautiful rifle and I have no doubt it is handy . Small enough to be a saddle gun with plenty of punch . You have good taste Amigo . ,,,,,DT

Thanks Dusty, will do.  Finally got a mag button made up for my short tube.  Hopefully I have copied what you have done previous.  Changed the barrel out to a 24", 45-60 while I was at it. Looking forward to getting it all back together.  Just short the tube.

$100 for a 3' section delivered to my door.  Tube on the way!  Thanks much!

Yike$$ ------ that be steam tube or polished hydraulic tubing I guess??? good stuff and much stouter than what I used but blimey !!! savage on the back pocket...... sez ole cheapskate aussie!!!!

might need to re do the mag button ? they need to be a nice neat fit to the tube......

(all of this $$$talk is nothing considering the value of a decent 76)
I stumbled onto the curtain rod before I made it to the  engineering shop . (my excuse for bein cheap!)

Scenes like that remind me that beautiful places still exist as they did years ago. Went to the Superstitions last year, there’s something about that place that speaks to me. Can’t explain it.

Sad to say, but with all the GD developers, we are starting to lose those places. Kinda like the "Eagles" song, "call someplace paradise, kiss it goodbye".

I have always wondered why the Winchester 92 sold so well after the release of the '94.  Now clearly the '94 sold a good 6-7 to one, but even then I couldn't quite figure out why the 92 was still such a great seller.  And then I came across some ammunition catalogs from 1905...

The model 92 WCF cartridges sold for 40% less than the cartridges for the '94.  That's a big difference, it also explains why most '92's tend to look about 405 more worn than your average '94.

The .30 WCF just leaves all the old pistol cartridges in the dust...  But those "weak" pistol cartridges had proven themselves as capable of harvesting game at reasonable ranges, and a blue collar man could afford to learn how to shoot his '92 very well.
