1873 Pistol Grip Rifle

The 1866 was already quite popular when the smaller, yet quite similar 1873 model was released. It became an immediate favorite. The Winchester Repeating Arms Company may have thought that domestic military sales would make up most of the orders for the firearm, but in fact, civilian sales and international military purchases were what brought in profit that year. In that day, the 1873 was the first lever action available with a broad variety of options. Today, an array of options is still offered in Taylor's 1873 line. The pistol grip model features a classic checkered pistol grip buttstock and checkered forend. Taylor's also offers two custom action options on all 1873 models. The Comanchero® action package includes a custom short-stroke action, lightened hammer and trigger pull, butt cover, lever wrap, and gold bead front sight. The Taylor Tuned option includes a custom action with hand polishing, custom hammer and lever springs, custom magazine tube spring, and an overall lightened action. Our custom actions feature one of the smoothest hammer and trigger pulls on the market. Inventory status may not reflect exact SKUs, please contact us to ensure immediate availability. Requires an FFL dealer to ship.

After first match! Review by 2 Gun Ramos

Took it to first match. Worked like a charm. Action is very nice and have not slicked it up yet. I may consider leaving it in stock condition. I once had an original Winchester 1873. This one is a lot nicer. These guns are truly a work of art. Now is my favorite rifle. (Posted on 8/2/2016)
A beautiful rifle! Review by 2 gun Ramis

I was looking to buy the straight stock version of this rifle, but when the guy at Reeds in San Jose showed me the pistol grip version they had, I baggy if on the spot. The workmanship was first class all the way. The wood on this particular gun had tiger striping that was just beautiful. Looks like a custom stock. It was much nicer than the one they had on the Comanchero they had for a lot more. The action is not as nice as the Comanchero, but once I slick it up and put a short throw kit in it will will be a much nicer gun for less. A lot better looking than the current Winchester. I can't wait to pick it up and start shooting. (Posted on 6/17/2016)
