Rifle #365XXX. Cal 32-20 WCF. Third Model. Very rare 32" Octagonal Barrel with two barrel bands! Barrel has about 40% of the original blue, balance is a nice brown patina. Magazine tube and frame are grey brown with traces of blue. Sights include a Lyman's patent "Aug.31.'86" marked blade front and a standard sporting rear sight. Mechanically very fine, bore is dark (as is the majority of these long barrel small caliber guns). Wood in fine condition. Made in 1890. Of a total production of 720.609 Model 1873's only 33 !! were made with a 32" barrel (James B. Gordon, Winchester 1873 Tribute, Vol.2, Page 678). Very good to fine condition. Very scarce gun! This is only the "second" Winchester Model 1873 with a 32"barrel we have offered for sale! Comes with a copy of a Winchester factory letter! Cartridges shown for information purposes only.
