That’s a true beauty. Notice the high amount of grain figure in the barrel by the front sight, that for certain denotes no ordinary Winchester! Most assuredly a one of a kind.
I do believe you have yourself an antique, because you most certainly won’t be able to find the special Rimfire ammunition it takes.
P.S. I wonder what rich boy ran around with that one pretending to be Jimmie Stewart.
WACA #8783 - Checkout my Reloading Tool Survey!
I remember as boys, my brother and I received Winchester Model 1873 rifles for Christmas, made by Mattel .These rifles were cool ,as besides firing caps they came with toy bullets you could load into the magazine and when you levered the rifle a cartridge would eject out the top of the rifle.There was even a little part on the lever, that could be set to fire the trigger and allow you to shoot the rifle like the Rifleman.
Wish I still had that rifle,but it got used and as kids will do ,it was used rough and most likely got broke at some point and given the heave ho.
