Would anyone have a photo of the correct magazine plug and screw for a 1873 Carbine?

 

Thanks

Kris,

1899 is when it was made.

Here are pictures of the magazine plug and screw. its the same one that is used on the 44 and 38 caliber rifles and carbines with full length tubes. They were probably used on other models as well if they used the same size tube. Winchester didn’t like to make unique parts for each model.

Thank you Bob and the correction on the date. The letter on the end, (A or B) has confused me for a bit. So it looks like the standard rifle plug without the lip. I was wondering since there are two holes in the magazine tube. The smaller of the two on the seam side.

They had a plug that the hole went all the way through and the barrel was drill for the end of the screw on later guns
