Description

Do you like the look of a pistol grip stock on a classic rifle like the ’73? Read on if you do. Because there is no doubt that there is something entirely cool about a pistol grip stock that has been combined with an octagon barrel. It has the look more of a dedicated rifleman than a working cowboy. You may love this rifle for other reasons, but the fact remains that a ’73 like this is purely a classic. But Winchester has taken it a step beyond with a walnut stock with fine Grade II/III walnut that simply gives it the look of the special limited rifles produced by Winchester in the mid-1800’s that became the legend of stories and movies.
The rear tang is drilled and tapped for tang mounted rear sight (not included). Features a semi-buckhorn rear sight and a Marble’s gold bead front sight.

GRADE II/III WALNUT PISTOL GRIP STOCK with a satin oil finish that’s velvet smooth to the touch
CLASSIC RIFLE-STYLE FOREARM for the timeless look and feel of the original Model 1873
COLOR CASE HARDENING on the robust steel receiver, lever, crescent buttplate and forearm cap protect against corrosion
CRESCENT BUTTPLATE slips right into your shoulder for a more solid hold from any shooting position
SEMI-BUCKHORN REAR SIGHT WITH MARBLE ARMS®
GOLD BEAD FRONT SIGHT gets you on target quickly
STEEL LOADING GATE for smoother loading
RECEIVER TOP TANG is drilled and tapped for an optional tang-mounted rear sight that gives you a more precise sight picture and the timeless look and feel of shooting a long-barreled frontier rifle
