1873 Comanchero Rifle
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. The Taylor's & Company 1873 Comanchero Rifle is ready for the cowboy shooter. Each one comes with a buckskin lever wrap, an elk butt stock cover, short-stroke links, and a gold-bead front sight. All Comanchero models feature custom tuning.
