Yeah baby.  Up and running.  I think a great first posting would be for everyone to post pictures of their 76 (s).   Regards. Deadeye.

hmm. lets see if I can make this work. Mine is a 26" 40-60 Chaparral. Serial number under 200. It's got the "enhanced" wood. So far, it's been fun to shoot. I finally got a smokeless load that shoots well with a 240gr bullet. I use cut down Starline 45-70 cases to make the ammo.

Well, I would current pics of my Chaparral '76, but it is currently torn apart all over my bench being restocked with real, honest-to-goodness walnut from Precision Gun Works.  I will post pics when I get it finished!   ;D

By the way, boys...we need a good photo for the header shot on this board.  It looks like every one has one but us!

Great idea Don!  Here's a couple of mine. ;)

Uberti 76 in 45-60 with 22 inch octagon barrel.



Original short rifle.  22 inch round barrel with shotgun butt and British proof marks.  I kinda like short rifle and carbines! ;)

As a Chapparal owner..............I gotta say I'm impressed with how sharp and crisp the metal is on that Uberti!
Wood to metal fit is awesome too!!!!

Here's one of my original carbines.  This is a Mountie in .45-75 WCF that was shipped in April of 1885, just in time to serve in the Reil Rebellion.  It was last documented in service at Ft. Saskatchewan in December of 1894.  The gun still retains 80% of it's original bright blue and it has a near perfect bore.    Later on, I will put up a photo of the ammo and reloading tools.  If you want to see more 1876 stuff, let me know.  I've got a pile of it.

This is Winchesters easliest Model 1880, 1st issue reloading tool.  The early spoon handle tools of this model were not marked with the Winchester name, only the patent date and caliber.  This one is often called the "patent tool" because the patent had been applied for but not yet issued.  The caliber marking on this one is .45-75 WCF.  I actually use this tool when reloading for my 76's.   The brass bullet mold is also Winchester, but marked only with the .45-75 WCF caliber.  This is the 3rd issue Winchester bullet mold of the same period as the tool.  The box of ammo is the rare MODEL " CETENNIAL" 1876 box.  This is not however, the earliest .45-75 WCF ammo.   The label dates it to the mid to late 1890 period.  Yes, it is full of it's original Winchester factory ammunition.  Hope you enjoy looking at this stuff.

Adios,
Buck

Greetings all..I finally have been able to sign on here. Nice to be with such a distinguished group.
I have 5 1/2 &6's   which includes one Uberti 45-60.   The half is in pieces and needs to be restored. Thats a 40-60 round barrel rifle.
I have not been able to work up a load and play with the Uberti too much yet but I have shot my original 45-75 deluxe. Whatta monster
