Well I have 2 Marlins both 1894's both JM stamped the 1894 C no cross bolt. The 1894 Cowboy Limited cross bolt safety but 24 inch Hex Barrel very nice wood stock etc. The Win.73 to me kinda fills the gap that the 1894 CB Limited Model does. The 1894 C does give me the light weight carbine thats nice for a scope. I looked at the spec's on a Win.73 Short Rifle 20 inch round barrel and the gun is almost 8 lbs. But very nice for open sight use. Man I am temped to do a swap for the Win. 73 with my Marlin 1894 CowBoy Limited Model now! Gets confusing I know these Win. Mod. 73's run new $1300.00

Hey mtman59714...

Found this interesting discussion on another forum. Apparently, the Uberti-made 1873's are designed more like the old, original Winchesters... than the recent Miroku-made Winchesters.

Thought you might be interested...

Winchester 73

Thanks HR, that was a good read, I like the the new 73 parts they are more refined you can see it in the photos, they spent more time machining them. I am not going to touch mine, its fast enough for me, and the more rounds I put thru it the smoother it gets. I sand bag it about 2.5 weeks ago out at the range three different loads factory PMC soft points, mid SWC, full on XTPs load made a ragged hole at 25 yds. Was a bit low easy fix.

So with the changes in the Miroku/Winchester 1873 vs the Uberti 1873 are both rifles equal in strength in their lockup and action say like in the Higher pressure .357 Magnum caliber?? Both makes of these 1873 replica rifles they are so beautiful. Some day I would really like to own one.

Yes with all, the old liability thing rears its head here, they couldn't produce ether one if they would have design faults. So any factory and hand-loads with in SAMMI spec's will be just fine.

Been reading thru this thread again, such a good thread and very interesting. I am still looking for the right Win. Model 73 or Model 92 in a Short Rifle 20 inch barrel Color Case Harden finish!!! Some day one will come my way. Not it any hurry either. These Lever Action Rifles are so very Habit Forming

I do like my Taylor 1873 Winchester clone. I've had it for at least 15 years, and it is truly a very accurate reproduction, and smooth as a spank babies butt. I've got mine in .45Colt rather than .357, although I've got the Henry Big Boy in .357Mag/.38Spl.

Well now I can say I own a 1873 Winchester Lever Action Short Rifle in .357 Magnum! These are beautiful rifles, I hopefully will take it out in a day or two to try it out. Pictures will follow!

Looked into these few weeks back but put my money on the 1885 high wall traditional hunter instead. Rossie in .357 and big boy Henry in .44 so the Winchester 1873 would slip right in and I have nothing in .45 colt.
