Wasn’t aware they made such a thing.

Cimarron currently carries 22LR 19" carbine and 24" rifle, 22 mag in 24" rifle (none in stock of course).  The carbine would be great for the .22 categories at some clubs.

I have a Navy Arms 1866 carbine in .22 and it’s great fun.  A bit heavy and the magazine is different than the one used by winchester for their .22 1873s, but a good gun.  They are thin on the ground.  It took me a 20 or so years to find one on the loose.  I am still looking for one of the even more rare Uberti 1873s in .22.  Not many made.  I have only ever seen one for sale online. 
 

Good luck finding a .22 to make your own.

I bought one of those uberti 1873 rifles in 22lr last year at a gun show. I had never seen one before. I put about 25 shots thru it just to try it.  It looked unfired when i bought it. It is the same size as a regular 1873, so it felt large in my hands compared to my everyday slim 94 winchester. 

 

Neat rifle.

A Uberti one or an original?

Best you call them to ask.

There is one for sale on Guns international for $999 under uberti rifles.  Hope that helps, but it is hard to beat a Winchester 94-22

They are very friendly!  Got a Flintlock rifle from them Aug 2019, when I was visiting my Mother in Green Valley for my birthday. Small shop though if you go in person.

Agreed, very nice people, but small selection. As I told them I had everything they had except for a Ruger old Army. If you are stating then they are the place to go.

You will notice they used a stock photo for every model.  The .22LR rifle does not have a loading gate.

I feel certain that is the SRP. Contact a few dealers to inquire as to whether they are actually in stock. I knew of several that would special order guns for 10-15% markup if paid in advance. I'm sure that would be substantially less than the SRP.

 I have found that used ones frequently go for a lot less, when you find them. I paid $400 for mine used two years ago. They are not common and I guess shops think they are less desirable than a centerfire, so they price them lower.

i got an email about 30 minutes ago from a friend asking if i want another 1873 in 22lr. He will be taking it to the lima gun show to sell and wanted to give me first chance. I do not need two, so i declined and ask if i could post the pic he sent on here. Here it is. He is asking $1000.

 

Not my gun, just posting for your enjoyment. CFC476C2-DF7A-4C34-A49E-174BF9966432.thumb.jpeg.f44969ddaa2b05adf1dd331df137a867.jpeg

These were out of production for many years.  Interesting to see them catalogued again!  I had an early example of the 66 that I thought would be a great practice rifle.  Pretty heavy, and I found the extractor to be pretty weak - broke 3 or 4 times - so I stopped using it for practice.  Uberti may have addressed that issue with this current version.  Very cool, and mine was very accurate!
