  1. I appreciate your reintroduction of the famous 1873 & I understand the reasoning behind the 357/38 Special chambering. However don’t overlook the hunters & those that want share the past in the respective calibers of the date. Myself personally I would like to purchase this model with a 24″ barrel in the calibers of 40-65 & 45-70. Also in the 24″ barrel I would prefer a 44-40. I also would provide the rear mounted tang sight at an additional price but leave the semi-buckhorn rear sight and the full- length magazine tube. Please notify me if you decide to make these available. If only through the custom shop I’m still interested. Thank you,
