A buddy of mine inherited some guns from his grandfather.  Not being a lever guy he gave me first pick.  I came home with a Model 1886 in 40-82 serial #1428 and  model 73 in 44-40 first model serial #18374 with (pending cody letter) a 28" extra heavy barrel.  

Still cant believe it! 20190331_163206.jpgImage Enlarger20190331_163305.jpgImage Enlarger20190331_163215.jpgImage Enlarger

Congrats on the rifles, especially the 73.  The heavy and extra length barrels are among my favorites, and yours has both.  Your buddies Grandpa had great tastes.
