Derived from the Model 1866, which became quite popular, the Model 1873 Winchester proved cheaper to produce and had a stronger action. The first lever action available in the day with a broad range of options and calibers, the 1873 became a brilliant success. Over 720,000 of them were produced between 1873 and 1919, and it justly became known as "the gun that won the West".
This beautiful modern-day faithful reproduction from Taylor & Co features a 20" blued octagonal barrel, a color case-hardened frame and walnut stock. Already a favorite with the Cowboy Action crowd, it is as functional as it is attractive, and is suitable for competition, target shooting, small game hunting and plinking.
