FS or Trade - Original Winchester 1873 Short Rifle

Recommended Posts

I have for sale, an original Winchester 1873, in 38-40 caliber. 20" round barrel. Born in 1888, a very good year!

I bought this fine rifle earlier this year and now it needs a new home.

The owner prior to me, said that there was an action job performed on it by a Dallas gunsmith of well known abilities.

It does not have a short stroke kit. The bore is shiney, no pits, good rifling, possible 7-ish on a scale of 1 to 10.

**additional information - the barrel was relined in 2003. So that makes the barrel abit more than a 7. Also, I called about the serial number from the Buffalo Bill Historical center and found out the following:

 

Date in: 7-2-1888

Type: Rifle

Caliber: 38

Barrel: Octagon

Trigger: Plain

Date shipped: 7-7-1888

Order: 9529

R&R – 2-1-1896

 

She is a round barrel now....when??? I do not know and neither does the owner before me.

 

Just a real Winchester 73, setup to shoot Cowboy Action. Now is your chance to shoot the real deal!

This rifle is considered an antique and so may be mailed directly to your home address.

 

Trades I might be interested in, are 7.62x51mm/308 rifles such as Armalite AR10 or Rock River Arms- LAR8.

Semi-auto 1911's,or SKB uncut shotguns, cash balance may go either way.

 

$1635, which includes the shipping. Contact Oklahoma Dee to buy this piece of America

Short rifles are nice. I have one. :) ( bottom of the page. )

 

It might help yours find a home if you gave information about the condition of the bore.

Hey there Wolfgang,

I am a bit remiss on that. When I bought the rifle, I was going to work towards using her in Cowboy Action shooting, and quite honestly, the person I bought it from, said the bore was good and I put my trust there. I put 10 rounds down range, and hit every target I shot at. 10 Dinks! She shoots fine. I have watched your replys and questions on various forums, and highly respect your insightful comments and general confabulations...that being said, :FlagAm: I sure admire your knowledge base and wit.

 

But, I would not rank this rifle as a collector piece. Hence, I have never looked down the bore.

 

She is a shooter only. An American Shooter at that! :)

 

But should someone ask to peer down her shaft, I will do that. Course, my idea of a bad, good, or grand bore, may not be that same as others! :lol:

 

Cheerio!

Bores on older rifles are generally rated from 1 to 10.

 

1 is a dirty rusty sewer pipe with no significant rifling. 10 is perfect like new.

Why? That is one of the first things I look at. What if you went out to shoot it and it were plugged with a 100 year old mud dauber's nest? Bad ju-ju.

Like I sed up above.... a statement of bore condtion, . . .ie. from one to ten. Is a standard way of stating congition and would sure help a potential purchaser know what they might be gettin'.... :huh:

Oklahoma Dee,

If you would consider $800.00, let me know. I have a feeling I will need to replace the barrel. Thanks, Dave

Highlonesome Lee, If you let me know more about your 1911, and see some pictures, I can make a decision. I am leaning toward the 308 rifles, but maybe you have something I could dwell on. Thank you for your time.
