In 1876 Winchester introduced a new lever action rifle, 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. Uberti's 1876 Centennial Rifle is 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. It features a side-loading gate for easy loading of the tubular magazine and comes in the same hard-hitting calibers as the original, making it strong enough to take down North America's toughest game. A lever lock on the Centennial Rifle ensures the lever remains securely in place and the 28", octagonal barrel sports a Buckhorn adjustable rear sight and a blade front sight. Case-hardened receiver. A-grade walnut straight stock and fore-end.
