I have a 1873 Winchester that needs a few parts. I’m looking for a main spring, firing pin and dust cover.  Does anyone know where I can find original parts? 

Thanks, Gary

Gary,

main spring and dust cover can be gotten from Ebay. The main spring can be from any model 73, you just need to know if its a plain trigger or set trigger spring. Dust covers can be from any second or third model 73. There is no firing pin in a 22 caliber 73, it part of the bolt. Most of the time the 22 gets dry fried by kids playing with them and the nub that hits the primer rim is flattened and no longer compresses the rim sufficiently. Finding a good bolt is next to impossible so most people weld it up and reshape it. I did buy one at the last Tulsa show but that was rare to find one. The bolts do come up on Ebay as well but you have to watch everyday because they will sell quick.
