Quick question,

Does anyone know how many Model 1873 rifles were made in .22 Short and .22 Long?

That model is outside my wheelhouse and I don’t have any books on the 1873.

Thanks!

I believe Blueliner may know. IIRC he bought a really cool 1873 in .22 short at the first Cody show I attended. One of the cool things about the rifle was the mid range tang sight if memory serves me correctly.

19,500 is close enough for right now, thanks Bob!
