The accompanying factory letter confirms this Model 1876 as a carbine chambered in .45-60 caliber and that it was received in the warehouse on December 9, 1885 and shipped on January 28, 1886. Manufactured as a third model with dust cover guide rail integrally machined as part of the receiver and dust cover with rear serrations.

Rating Definition:

Good. The barrel has turned mostly to a smooth brown patina, otherwise the metal surfaces have a mottled gray patina. Magazine tube internals are absent. The reoiled oversize period replacement wood is also good with a couple hairline stress cracks in the wrist and minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
