342068 Special Sporting Short .45 Colt 20″ C/H Frame, Buttplate and Lever The Winchester 1873 Rifle was called the “rifle that won the West.” This piece of history is available in 7 distinctive models, including the Uberti1873 Carbine and the Uberti 1873 Special Sporting Rifle, and others. See them all below.
When the gun was first offered, it was chambered in the powerful new .44-.40 cartridge. The .44 caliber bullet was propelled by 40 grains of black powder.
The success of the 1873 Rifle was assured when Colt quickly offered its Peacemaker in the same caliber. Then a cowboy needed only 1 cartridge belt for a lever-action rifle plus his 6-shooter.
The bronze frame and the low power of the original .44 Henry rimfire cartridge limited the 1866 rifle's versatility. In 1873, continuing the process of improving the lever action design, Winchester introduced a new steel-framed rifle firing the more potent .44/40 center fire cartridge. The Model 1873 firmly established the lever action as an American standard-the weapon that truly "Won the West." Uberti offers several variances: the Carbine with 19" barrel; the 20" barrel Short Rifle; the Sporting Rifle with 24-1/4" barrel (specify round or half-octagon); and the Special Sporting Rifle, with select walnut pistol-grip stock. Available in .357, .44/40 and .45 Colt.
