Billed as "the gun that won the West," the Winchester Model 1873 is one of the most significant firearms in American history. With a production life that spanned over three decades, the Model 1873 is one of the most popular firearms ever produced. Winchester's 1873 Deluxe Trapper model starts with a high-grade walnut straight-grip stock with a satin oil finish that's velvet smooth to the touch. The classic rifle-style forearm has a color case-hardened steel cap for the timeless look and feel of the original Model 73. The case-hardened steel crescent buttplate slips onto your shoulder for a solid hold. The 16" round barrel is topped with a ladder rear sight and a brass bead front sight that are both functional and period-accurate. The steel loading gate provides for smoother loading. The full-length magazine tube holds 9 rounds of .357 Magnum or 10 rounds of .38 Special ammunition. This rifle appears to be unfired and comes with the original factory box. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
