Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Winchester Repeating Arms Company -- Winchester Model 1873 Caliber .22 Short

Winchester Model 1873 Caliber .22 Short Rifle. This gun was manufactured in 1888. It has the 24” octagon barrel. Of the 700K+ 1873 rifles made less than 20K were manufactured in .22 cal. The .22 caliber receiver does not have loading gate found on other calibers. It has the front-loading magazine tube. The barrel address reads "WINCHESTER'S ARMS. NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A./KING'S IMPROVEMENT PATENTED MARCH 29. 1866. OCTOBER 16. 1860." The barrel also has the "22 SHORT" marking near the breech of the barrel. The brass elevator is stamped "22 CAL./SHORT." in script letters. The 1873 Winchester is the first .22 caliber rifle manufactured in the U.S.A. The gun is in fine/excellent condition. It has an over blue plum patina finish. The blue is turning plumb and can be seen in natural lighting. The metal surfaces are smooth with sharp edges. The action works fine. The dust cover slides like new with no play. The rear and fore stocks have a few shallow handling dents and dings. There is a Cody Museum letter accompanying the rifle. It is addressed to a very well-known collector/dealer. I hope the photos will show how nice this gun is. I am honoring 3 day inspection. The buyer pays 45.00 insurance and shipping. Thanks!

Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  Can you answer two questions about the 1873? 1) Is there any pitting of the metal on any areas of the gun? 2) What is the barrel like and have you cleaned it? So many of the early 22 have horrible barrels. Probably the volume of black powder rounds put through them because the ammo was cheap.

        A:  Hi Terry, Thanks for asking your questions. I do not see any pitting on the metal surfaces. There are some small pepper like dings as displayed in the photo of the left side of the barrel near the muzzle. This is not moisture damage. If it was I don't think it would be so isolated and would probably cover at least a bit of a larger area. The barrel looks clean, shines. Rifling is there. No I have not cleaned. it. 11/25/2013
