Do you know what old rifles were chambered for the .40-60 WCF cartridge or could actually fire it ? I know that the .40-60 cartridge was introduced in 1876 for the Winchester 1876 Centennial Model rifle and the Whitney-Kennedy lever action rifle was chambered for it. Were there any others, either repeaters or single shot ?

The Colt Lightning was chambered for the .40-60 Colt and the Marlin 1881 was chambered for the .40-60 Marlin.

Thanks.

I don't know for a fact, but I would be very surprised if there were not at least a few Winchester 1885 Hi-Wall or Low-Wall single shots chambered for it.
