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 on fine reproduction models by Taylor’s & Company.

This rifle is my 32 gun I own now and a new number ONE. What a well built and handling gun, too pretty to shoot. Just got it this week and thanks to Taylors. (Posted on 2/3/2016)
Great rifle for cast bullets Review by Stubbicatt

Bought this rifle from Taylor's about 6 weeks ago. Upon advice of others I also bought a spring kit, to include elevator springs, reduced power hammer spring and the grip safety spring. I chose not to install the grip safety spring as it didn't offer what I felt was enough resistance.

The bore is .356 inches in the grooves, and accepts .358 cast bullets very well. I use a Lyman mould to cast 160 grain RNFP bullets which this rifle shoots extremely well. The sights were perfectly regulated, no need to adjust them.

In all this is a high quality rifle and I would buy it again.

Also a word about Taylor's customer service. It was a lady I spoke to on the phone several times before making the purchase. She was cheerful and knowledgeable and patient. It was a satisfactory transaction. (Posted on 6/15/2015)
