The Winchester Model 1873 features many improvements over the Model 1866. It is a stronger action able to handle heavier cartridges. First produced in September of 1873, it was a very popular rifle - favored by Buffalo Bill Cody and many Texas Rangers - with a total manufacturing run of nearly 721,000. The last Model 73 left the Winchester factory in 1925. All PGW 1873 buttstocks, with the exception of shotgun-style rifle stock, are drilled for the cleaning rod.
Our Winchester Model 1873 stocks are intended for only early original firearms, manufactured through 1925. They are not correct for recently manufactured reproduced or re-introduced models.
