Hi,

Can anyone tell me where I can get a pattern for a 1876 lever action, with a 28" barrel. I believe this is a  44-60 Bicentennial Limited Edition. Any advice would be welcome.

This is my first post, so many thanks.

Steve

Welcome to the forum...

Here are a couple of Tandy's pattern packs that could be a place to start in your quest... Either could be modified to suit your needs...

Al stohlman's book on case making (vol. 3 I think) has one that may be adapted to fit your needs. Or at least offer insight to creating your own.

Hi

Thanks for the information I will check them out. I'm sure it will straight forward enough to adapt the patterns.

Many Thanks

Steve

I go for building the pattern around the weapon when given a choice.  If you have your hands on it, it will take moments to do that.

I half agree with @cowboycolonel. By all means, use the rifle if you have it, but still get the Stohman book for ideas for constructing the scabbard.

Hi,

Cant get my hands on the rifle. I was hoping to work that way. This was why hoped for an exact pattern. Thank you all for a great response
