Has anybody been to see the new Winchester’s 2020 shotshow rifles ?

Looking for pictures of the new 2020 1873

Good luck.  I check for YouTube videos from the SHOT show for coverage of gun and stuff I'm interested in but all they cover is all the latest wizz-bang technicool guns and gadgets.   You see the cameras pan across a lot of nice stuff but it gets little attention.

Gunblast.com ( Jeff and Boge Quinn ) does a review by day, but I don't know if they'll be there this year.  The web site doesn't show anything.

Thanks for the info,

I was hoping a Las Vegas local shooter would stop in and check out what Winchester is doing for the 1873 2020 shotshow rifle.

Here is a picture of the 2018 Shotshow rifle

I looked at the Winchester web site and they have the Shot Show specials listed.  The 1873 looks to be the same as the one pictured.  According to the options tab they can be had in 45Colt, 38/357 and 44-40.  MSRP $1,800.

Henry has released tactical versions of their pistol and rifle caliber rifles.  Black synthetic stocks, loading gates, taller sights (I think) and threaded barrels.  Definitely trying to break into the tactical/silenced market.  Suprisingly Lever Guns work well silenced, they are tolerant of heavier bullets for subsonic work, they're easier to maintain (no gas systems to clog due to higher pressure) and they're surprisingly robust/easy to scope.

 

Now for cowboy action shooting these guns would be verboten and shunned, but overall kudos to Henry for trying something.

 

What I would love to hear from the SHOT show is that Rossi is starting to crank out Ranch Hands again at Rossi prices instead of what Chiappa is charging. 

 

Any innovation in SASS/CAS announced at the SHOT show would probably be lambasted/scorned/deemed illegal for some reason or another (Uberti's 380ACP revolver?).  Also, how much innovation can their be when you're limited by rules to a small select crowd of arms designs and rules?  The only thing I could think of would be Ruger upsizing the Wrangler to make an affordable Vaquero but then they'd be undercutting a primetime member of their pistol lineup.

 

Finally, I'm hearing lots of not-so-good info about Colts new Python.  I think someone said it best here that its sad when there's a plethora of companies (foreign and domestic) that can build their bread-n-butter wares (Revolvers, SAAs, AR-15s) better than they can.

The Cimarron 10mm leaves me underwhelmed.

Good luck finding a 2018 shot show rifle.

they made less than 200 In 357.

 

I had to have my second one custom made to match my first Winchester.
