I have a spiral bound book, Survey of Winchester Model 1873’s Number 1 by James D. Gordon.  I believe these came with the purchase of Winchester’s New Model of 1873 A Tribute books.  I am looking to sell it but can’t find any others that have been sold.  Any idea of the value?

Those are not worth much. The came with the Gordon books but after a short time they ran out so I asked Jim about it and he said you can copy them and give them to who ever wanted it. So I have it saved to pdf and have given out copies.

Bob, Is there anything of value or still up to date in that book? I”m not familiar with it but if it’s worth reading…

Jeremy,

The 73’s haven’t changed so the information is still good. I still look at them to check a marking or feature.

I tend to forget about my listing.  I do, however, refer to the books with some regularity.  Doesn’t hurt to be reminded of the general lists.  Tim

Thanks for the copy.  My 73 is in his list.  Nothing special noted except DCW, deluxe, checkered wood.
