Just a pic for entertainment’s sake. Winchester 1873, 1888 manufacture, 44-40. A little fiddleback along bottom and rear of stock. An original cleaning rod in the stock cavity. Been shooting full case capacity Blackhorn 209 and lasercast 200gr, estimated 970 per Western though i think that data was for revolver. Anyway, so pleased with it offhand i haven’t tried anything else yet.

Good-looking rifle, I'm jealous. I've wanted an original Winchester 1873 for a long time, but they are priced way out of my reach so I have to settle for the modern ones. They're good rifles as well, but it's just not the same as holding an original in your hands.
