About Product

WINNING THE WEST -- MODEL 1873. Both the Winchester Model 1873 and its predecessor, the Model 1866, are key to the winning of the American West. The predecessor to the Model 1873 -- the 1866 Yellow Boy -- played a key role in providing food and security during the building of the transcontinental railroad. But only four short years after the meeting of the rails, the nation was in motion like never before and Winchester had an improved lever action rifle: the Model 1873. With the ease- and speed-of-travel offered by the new railroad system, the Model 1873 became indispensable to farmers, ranchers, and other settlers who were using the railroad as their way to "Go West."

The Model 1873 came West in the hands of huge numbers of people seeking the American Dream and looking for a new way of life. Over time, the Model 1873 proved itself as one of the greatest rifles in history, and earned its title as "The Gun That Won The West."
