Bob some years back I went to the Winchester House.  It has a small collection of Winchesters.  One of them was a 73 smooth bore.  I think it may have been a 32?  I also believe Tom Burness owned it.

Steve,

46 that I have found. One of which was just a tang on Ebay.

Bob  

I could not remember if I had already posted my grandfathers rifle. I sent off for the letter, and got it back 2 weeks ago. My grandfather had passed away back in 2002, he supposedly had found this at a farm when he was 8 years old back in the mid 1920’s. The serial number for my 1873 is 515. 

He moved all around the world with the Army Aircorp and Air Force, my grandmother still retains his gun collection. There is another 1886 in very good condition. I will have to get some more info on it, but I believe it is in 45-90. Only a few guns, have made it out to family members .

Here is the info from the letter, and some pictures included.

Type: Rilfe

Barrel Type: Octagon

Barrel Length: 24 inches

Trigger: Set

Target 3-1/2

Received in warehouse on March 07, 1874

Shipped from warehouse on April 10, 1884, Order Number 1246

Rod,

No you haven’t reported it to me yet. A good early rifle for sure. Post a picture of the rear sight.

Thanks, Bob
