In 1876 Winchester introduced a new lever action rifle. The Winchester 1876 rifle was called the Centennial Rifle, in commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the United States. Favored by the likes of Theodore Roosevelt, the 1876 Centennial Rifle was the king of its day. It was discontinued in 1898, after 63,871 of the Winchester lever action rifles had been produced.
Now, 132 years after the first 1876 rifle was produced by Winchester, Uberti has brought this legend back to life, even better than before. Uberti proudly introduces the Uberti 1876 Centennial Rifle, an exact replica of the Winchester Centennial Rifle. With better, stronger materials and more precise machining to exacting tolerances and specifications, today’s model is stronger and more accurate with modern smokeless and black powder ammunition. True to the original Winchester rifles, the Uberti 1876 Centennial Rifle is chambered in the hard-hitting calibers: .45-60, .45-75, .50-95, and .40-60. These Uberti rifles are strong enough to take down North America’s largest big-game animals. The 1876 rifle comes with a 28″ octagonal barrel, fully-adjustable sights, color case-hardened receiver, and A-grade walnut straight stock and fore-end.
