The 1876 Centennial Rifle by Uberti

 


The Model 1876 was introduced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company in Philadelphia at the Centennial anniversary commemorating the declaration of independence from British domination. Popular as it was among frontiers men and big-game hunters of the period, production of this model was discontinued on 1898. Good news is Uberti has minted an accurate replica of Winchester’s 1876 Centennial Rifle. Better news is that the Uberti version is stronger and better than the original.

 

 

 

Uberti raftsmen used sturdier materials, stricter specs, and more precise matching in the construction of each Uberti 1876 Centennial Rifle. The 1876 Centennial Rifle is stronger and more accurate when combined with today’s black powder and smokeless ammunition. Get to know more about it at the official Uberti website.

Frontiersmen’s Favorite

The original 1876 used more powerful hunting cartridges than its predecessors, making it more popular with frontiersmen for taking down killer grizzly bears, as well as larger big-game animals that provide food on their table. Faithful to the original, Uberti’s 1876 Centennial Rifle is chambered in powerful knock-down calibers: .50-95, .45-60, and .45-75.
