Winchester 1873 Sporter Octagon .45 Colt Lever-Action Rifle, Grade II/III Walnut, Case Colored, 24″ Barrel, Winchester 534217141
No other firearm brand can lay claim to the legendary reputation of Winchester Repeating Arms®. Through the genius of John M. Browning, many of these all-time favorites are forever a part of America’s history. When it came time to chase a band of outlaws out of town, blaze a trail across the Great Plains or face down a charging grizzly on a narrow trail in the High Rockies, the men whose legendary courage tamed the Wild West chose to arm themselves with a genuine Winchester rifle or carbine. It was the gun they carried with absolute confidence, knowing that their lives and livelihoods depended on it shooting straight and true every time they pulled the trigger.
These magnificent historic rifles are limited production models and each one is crafted to the most exacting standards. This level of quality takes time and talent, and with so many classic variations in detail — like case colored receivers, different barrel lengths, deluxe and commemorative models in both rifles and carbines — it means that Winchester Repeating Arms will not have every historic model in the product line every year.
Winchester Repeating Arms knows a great deal about “legends”. Their product line is full of the. But few can match the legendary look, feel and function of this very special octagon-barreled Model 1873 with a stunning cased colored receiver.
The feature set starts with a full octagon barrel, a tang that is drilled and tapped for a tang mounted rear sight (not included) and a beautiful color case hardend receiver, lever and fore-end cap.
GRADE II/III WALNUT STRAIGHT GRIP STOCK with a satin oil finish that’s velvet smooth to the touch
CLASSIC RIFLE-STYLE FOREARM with forearm cap for the timeless look and feel of the original Model 1873
ELEGANT COLOR CASE HARDENING on the robust steel receiver, lever, crescent buttplate and forearm cap protect against corrosion

RECEIVER TOP TANG is drilled and tapped for an optional tang-mounted rear sight that gives you a more precise sight picture and the timeless look and feel of shooting a long-barreled frontier rifle
