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.

Quality Rifle Review by David

Recently purchased a Model W1873 and was pleased with the appearance and craftsmanship. The rifle also has a smooth lever action and repeatable shot on target. One issue I have is the instruction manual published on the Tayler's site is not the correct manual. The one that came in the cardboard box is correct - listed as model W1873 and not model 1873. The manual on the site is a copy of only one side of the manual. It also mentions care and maintenance but provides no discussion on the topic. I wrote Uberti an email and did get a reply with the same incorrect manual. The other issue is the fit of the walnut is not exact (overlap). If not for these issues I would have given a 5 star for quality. My first 5 hits at 50 yards were +/- 2" but the 100 yard mark needs some practice. I am not sure how the creedmore site sold would help. I would recommend purchasing the 1873. (Posted on 3/23/2016)
