The Winchester Model 1873 is the classic cowboy's saddle gun of the late 19th century American West, often paired with a Colt Frontier Six Shooter. The factory letter from 1976 lists this carbine as shipped on March 31, 1885. It has a block mounted nickel-silver blade front sight, period added notch and folding ladder rear sight, Third Model frame with integral dust cover guide rail, standard markings, tang mounted peep sight, and smooth carbine forearm and stock with a three-piece cleaning rod in the compartment.
Good with gray and brown patina, mild pitting, period modified/lowered hammer spur, and general mild overall wear. The refinished wood is also good with mild dings and scratches. Mechanically fine. This is definitely a classic Western firearm with a lot of character.
