The Holy Grail! T&C’s 1873 Winchester in 9mm! — NRA 2024

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

At NRAAM 2024, True showcased a standout prototype: an 1873 Winchester, revamped by Taylor’s and Company and now chambered in 9mm.

This classic rifle, upgraded with a tubular magazine that holds 10 rounds, blends historical allure with modern functionality.

The rifle features a threaded barrel for suppressor attachment and is equipped with iron sights that include fiber optics for enhanced visibility.

Its case-colored finish and walnut stock highlight its gorgeous traditional craftsmanship.

But the real talk of the show is the rifle’s action—described by True as one of the smoothest he’s ever handled. The lever action is light and fast, perfect for those who value a quick, reliable cycle.

Priced with hopes under $2,000, Taylor’s and Company aim to make this 9mm version of the 1873 Winchester accessible to those of us who appreciate a rifle that can share ammo with the most common handgun caliber in America.

    It’s a hard no for me on this one, I prefer my lever guns in more traditional calibers. If I want a 9mm PCC there a countless better choices out there. It’s a two thousand dollar rifle, nobody who can afford that is worried about the price of .38/357, .44-40, .45 Colt, . 44spec/mag. No thanks.

    I think a lever gun in 9mm is a great idea. I would prefer it in an updated Model 1892. Also, I think you could get 15-20 9mm in a 20″ or 24″ rifle which would be part of the appeal for me. Anyone questioning how much zippity doo dah a 9mm has in a rifle need only look at the new Winchester high pressure 115 FMJ FP which exits a 16″ carbine at 1,700 fps and the new Winchester high pressure 147 HP which I guesstimate will clock at 1,200 plus.
    I would be equally thrilled for a new lever gun in .30 Carbine.

    I would love to have a 9mm lever action for playing around but for $2100 it is way above budget. The price of 9mm ammo is one of the most reasonable of any centerfire. Too bad I will never afford this one.

    Sorry, I cannot see paying that kind of money for a PCC. If it were in a more traditional caliber say 44-40 or 45LC and around or less than $1,000 I might consider it. At the high price point, no thanks.

    A lot of carbine options in the 9mm. Still waiting for this in God’s em em. 10mm lever i would buy.

    The Holy Grail??? Seriously???

  • LibsWorshipSatan May 27, 2024, 1:09 pm

    I have to ask…WHY? Most people buying a M1873 replica are doing it for its historical interest, and they’re getting it in a caliber that is at least SOMEWHAT reasonable to the gun (.44-40, .38-40, and non-original cartridges that are still not out of the line of reason like .38spl and .45LC). And threading the muzzle? Seriously? A 9mm lever action is only reasonable in the commie states that have banned semi-autos – then, why not sell it with a 10 round box mag. If it HAS to have a fixed mag, make it more quickly reloadable from the top with stripper clips (last I knew, 5.56mm stripper clips will accept 9mm rounds). But personally, I wouldn’t own this abomination – not unless it was a just-can’t-pass-it-up deal for well under $1,000.

    Looks like a nice gun but NOBODY that I know says: “nine-em-em”. NOBODY.

  • Mark Gerrard May 27, 2024, 9:01 am

    I about fell out of my chair when he said “ we hope it comes in at less than two thousand “. Unless they wanna keep all of them he’d better hope that. No sense in it being expensive.

    • Jay G May 27, 2024, 9:49 am

      I totally agree! I thought the same thing regarding the pricing on S&W’s “fastest shooting revolver.” At $3,500, the sales will indeed be “limited”!

  • Winters May 27, 2024, 8:06 am

    If you are going to build a rifle in a pistol caliber, please give it some punch. Build it in 44 mag or at least 357 mag.

  • PistolGrip44 May 27, 2024, 7:33 am

    Just bring back .44-40. At that price for a 9mm, the answer is No.
