Winchester Model 1873, .22 short cal. lever action rifle. Serial #513658B, mfg. 1898. Antique. Good condition. Certainly an above average 1873 now gone to a nice patina - some old clean-up areas on the bottom of the magazine tube that have patina now. 24" round barrel has buckhorn rear sights and post front sight. Vivid ".22 short" designation on top of barrel. Barrel address is good with fading on the top line. Surprisingly the bore rates good and this is a good feature of this rare gun. Wood has an old break in the bottom of the buttstock that has been repaired and is tight with some old stock putty - see photo. Action is tight and works well. Dust cover. Crescent butt. Wrong screw in bottom of tang, but this is an easy fix. Tough one to find! Lots of center fire '73s out there, but damn few .22's. Will enhance any Winchester lever collection and is an important model. Round barrel is unique. Antique. Can ship right to your doorstep.
