This is a Model 1873 in .22 short, shipped from the factory April 4, 1887 (serial #233xxx). It is a round barrel rifle, plain trigger with standard 24" barrel, and typical rough bore. The gun is in working order with all factory parts except the dust cover, which has been removed. Barrel and receiver have turned to overall patina with very little original finish. The front sight is a Marbles replacement but the rear is original. The magazine outer tube appears to have been replaced, as it shows better than 90% blue. The inner tube is complete and in very good condition. I would suppose the stocks have been replaced at one time or another, as they show very little wear and most of their finish. Generally speaking this is a fuine example of a fairly rare, antique 1873, which requires no FFL for shipment. Will consider partial trade for Model 71 Winchesters. We can take VISA or MasterCard for a 2% fee.
Priority U.S. Mail, insured.
