Winchester 1873 44-40  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Pre-1899 Lever
Description: I took the rifle to a Dealer to review condition and market price. They said the rifle in this condition is worth $4,900 on the high end, according to the Blue Book which they showed me. The dealer suggested I write to Winchester to obtain a history of the rifle. Ltr. from Win. Cody Wyoming of September 24, 2014 arrived with date of manufacture July 27, 1888 and date of shipment november 22, 1888. Order number 14569.

Mechanism works fine. Lettering clear. Condition of wood and metal very good as shown in photos. It has a round barrel with full magazine extending to the end of the barrel. It has a brass door at the but for extra ammo or cleaning rod. The bore has clear marked rifling. Took to Bristol Club when I got it years ago. Members said you can shoot modern low pressure "cowboy rounds" or Black Powder 44-40. They shot it 3-4 times and I shot it once at a 25 yard plank. It shoots fine. Club only allows to load and shoot one at a time. Manufactured in 1887, 274273. Antique.
