The Winchester 1873 Rifle was called the “rifle that won the West.” This piece of history is available in 7 distinctive models, including the Uberti 1873 Carbine and the Uberti 1873 Special Sporting Rifle, and others.
When the gun was first offered, it was chambered in the powerful new .44-.40 cartridge. The .44 caliber bullet was propelled by 40 grains of black powder.
The success of the 1873 Rifle was assured when Colt quickly offered its Peacemaker in the same caliber. Then a cowboy needed only 1 cartridge belt for a lever-action rifle plus his 6-shooter.
Exclusively available in 2018, the Uberti USA 1873 Limited Edition Short Rifle Deluxe takes the basic model to new heights of beauty and functionality.
The Limited Edition short rifle model (#342811) is fully engraved after an original pattern from the 19th century, featuring game and scroll patterns. The engraving is hand-chased by the renowned Atelier Giovanelli.
