Item No.: 8635 Price : $2,195.00
Item : WINCHESTER MODEL 1873 MUSKET, .44 CAL., 1903 MFG.
Description :
Here is an original, Winchester Model 1873 Musket manufactured in 1903 and chambered for the .44-40 (.44 WCF) cartridge. This is a Third Model 1873 with the dust cover rail machined directly into the receiver. The musket variation was intended for military sales and has a 30" barrel with a 27" magazine tube. Only about 5% of Model 1873 production was the musket variation. This Winchester has been refinished sometime in the past. It appears to be an older reblue and is pretty well done. The rifle retains about 98% of the reblued finish, with a little wear on the butt plate at the toe and heel. There was light pitting on the barrel near the muzzle and this was polished and blued over. The markings are a little faint, but mostly visible. The last digit of the serial number is not readable. The caliber is marked on the barrel and the elevator block. The musket has excellent mechanics. The bore is excellent as well, bright and shiny with sharp rifling. I believe the wood was redone when the metal was, but it is well done and looks great. The stock has the deep reddish brown color typical of Winchester rifles and a nice smooth finish. There are just a couple of tiny dings from use. If you would like an original '73 Winchester to shoot, this one, with its great bore and mechanics, may be the one for you. Stock no. 22901
