New from Navy Arms is its replica of the original Winchester Model 1873 rifle. The rifle, built for the experienced cowboy shooter, is available in .45LC and .357 calibers. Navy Arms makes these rifles in cooperation with Winchester Repeating Arms and Doug Turnbull Restorations.
The Model 1873 features a Turnbull “bone charcoal” colored case-hardened receiver and furniture; a full-octagonal barrel in 20- and 24.25-inch lengths; a gold bead front sight and semi-buckhorn rear sights; and a deluxe Grade 1 American walnut stock with full checkering at the wrist and forend for a sure-handed grip.
The rifle sports a square Model 71 shotgun-style butt-plate for fast mounting, and a pre-installed Winchester short stroke kit. For more information on this rifle, visit Navy Arms at www.navyarms.com or call (304) 274-0004.
