Winchester Repeating Arms recently announced the return of “The Gun that Won the West”–the Model 1873 lever-action rifle.
Consumers can now own a genuine Winchester Repeating Arms Model ’73 with an oil-finished walnut stock, classic blued steel crescent buttplate and 20-inch round barrel–just like the original.
Other features include a full-length magazine tube, semi-buckhorn rear sight with Marble Arms gold bead front sight. There is a steel loading gate and receiver rear tang that is drilled and tapped for a tang-mounted rear sight. The Model 1873 is offered in .357/38 Special chambering. Suggested retail price is $1,300.
