The 1866 was already quite popular when the smaller, yet quite similar 1873 model was released and became an immediate favorite. 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. Taylor's 1873 comes with a 20" octagonal barrel with a blued finish. The stock is made from American walnut and the receiver is color case-hardened to give the 1873 a beautiful but classic appearance. A blade front sight and Buckhorn rear sight make up the accurate, traditional sight picture. Straight grip stock. 10-round capacity.
