Winchester’s 1873 rifle was the “Rifle that Won the West.” It was chambered in a new, more powerful cartridge, the .44-40—a .44 caliber bullet, propelled by 40 grains of black powder. However, a factor that really insured the success of the 1873 Winchester rifles was that Colt quickly offered its Peacemaker chambered in .44-40, as well. A cowboy could have both a lever-action rifle and his six shooter, and needed only one cartridge belt for both. Most Texas Rangers and every old West cowboy worth his salt carried 1873 rifles. Taylor's & Company is proud to offer a wide array of configurations in this venerable long-gun that made its mark in the West.

I have this, and it is a joy to shoot. It was under $1,300.00 , I plan to buy another this spring. (Posted on 2/23/2017)

I waited for fifteen years looking for this configuration of the 1873. 20” octagon barrel with checkered straight stock. I’ve owned several 1873 Uberti rifles which have all been excellent. This version combines all the features I like in one package. For speed and reliability you’ll need to (1) install a 38/357 sleeve in the magazine tube, (2) replace the safety catch spring with a reduced power version, and (3) properly adjust the two action spring tension screws in front of the lever (instructions can be found on an Internet search). With these changes made, I doubt you can find a rifle that is as fast and easy to handle. Add in the quality of the fit, finish, and case colors and you have a rifle that is a joy to own.
