In 1876 Winchester introduced a new lever-action rifle; they called it the “Centennial Rifle” in commemoration of the United State’s 100th anniversary. Winchester’s Model 1876 was discontinued in 1898, after 63,871 guns had been produced. For 2007, 131 years after the first 1876 Rifle was produced by Winchester, Uberti introduces an exact replica of the Winchester “Centennial Rifle”. True to the original, Uberti’s 1876 Rifle is chambered in the hard-hitting .45-60 caliber, strong enough to take down North America’s largest big-game animals. It also comes with a 28" octagonal barrel, color case-hardened receiver and A-Grade walnut stock and fore-end.
Favored by the likes of Theodore Roosevelt, the 1876 “Centennial Rifle” was the king of its day. Uberti has brought this legend back to life, only better than before. With better, stronger materials and more precise machining, Uberti is able to replicate the original model to more exacting tolerances and specifications, making it stronger and more accurate. When you pick up an Uberti, you’re holding history in your hands!
The 1876 rifle features a side-loading gate for easy loading of its tubular magazine.
The 1876 rifle includes a lever lock to insure the lever remains securely in place.
The 28" tapered barrel sports a Buckhorn adjustable rear sight and a blade front sight.
