The Model 1873 is also available in .357 Magnum or .38 Special. The 1873 comes from the factory with beautiful case-colored black walnut and traditional brass lifter with caliber inscriptions. Staying true to the classic, the 1873 features an oil-finished walnut stock with a classic, blued steel crescent butt plate and a 20-inch barrel. The 1873 is the perfect rifle for plinking, target shooting and 3-gun. Suggested retail for the Winchester 1873 is $1,579 and it is available now.
