What length 1873 on most using?


Recommended Posts

When I place either of my rifles in the rack at my local shoots, they stick out, since they're both running 24" barrels. Everyone else is running 20" barrels. I don't see shorter barrels as the shorter barreled rifles usually don't hold enough cartridges to make it through a stage without reloading.

Most shooters on the various posses at different matches shoot 20 inches or less length 73 barrels. Between son and I we have 6 73s all 20 inch barrels in 357. Son has a couple other 73s, 44-40 and 45 LC with longer barrels he does not shoot.

i have a 19 carbine and a 20 inch short rifle. i prefer the carbine. i guess i am weird. i got the 20 first and have had it probably for 13 years i guess. i really liked it then i found a 19 inch carbine, i had been looking for one and it has become the one i grab. i think if i like the round barrel.
