The Winchester 1873 Sporter shares the same classic design as the original classic that's still favored by many hunters and shooters. It features a 24" blued octagon barrel and a pistol-grip-style grade II/III walnut stock. The rifle style forearm provides an intuitive grip and the crescent style buttplate nestles into the shoulder. The classic-styled receiver, lever, forend cap, and loading gate give this rifle a nostalgic look and feel. It has a full-length magazine and a traditional buckhorn rear sight with a Marble Arms gold bead front sight. The Model 1873 Sporter Rifle is an excellent choice for a ranch gun, hunting in heavy cover or even Cowboy Action Shooting competitions.
