Original Item: Only One Available. If you were looking to do some big game hunting with Teddy Roosevelt out in the “Old West”, this is just what you need! This very fine example of the “Second Model” Winchester Model 1876 rifle is in the large .45-60 Winchester caliber, with a 28″ octagonal barrel and full length magazine tube. This barrel length identifies it as the “Sporting Rifle” version of the 1876 “Centennial Model.” Teddy Roosevelt’s Model 1876, on the other hand, was one of those with the half octagonal barrel and half length magazine tube, and his gun was significantly more ornamented.
Correctly marked with the caliber .45 – 60 on the feed block and CAL. .45 – 60 above the chamber, the rifle bears serial number is 34685 denoting the year of manufacture as 1883. The barrel is fitted with the classic Winchester blade front sight, and an adjustable rear ladder sight marked 1876 at the top. The engraving on top of the barrel is still fully clear:
