Here’s some better pics of the 1881 1873.

 

It doesn’t letter with the flip up sight, but the 28 inch round barrel and mag do letter

It has an OLD set of elevator sights on the barrel that don’t letter to the gun, but I think are cool all the same.
This thing is amazing to me for as old as it is. The barrel has some spots that have lost bluing, but I can’t get over the receiver on thus thing.

It is a beauty and I am honored to have it in the safe. If ammunition is short, I can use that thick barrel as a club.

This should partner well with my 1883 SAA.

I like that 73.  Anything with a non-standard barrel length, a heavy barrel, or combination of both are a configurations that catch my eye and peak my interest.

That’s a nice bunch there! 

 

Really like the Turnbull rifle too. I have a 1999 Miroku Winchester 86 Takedown that I had Turnbull make into what I’ve dreamed for years of owning. They didn’t disappoint ?

Really nice collection.  Your 1892 and 1873 look good together, both in excellent condition.

Thanks for sharing with us.

If I had pick of the litter, it would be the Bieson Model 70, in the best of all the 70 calibers; Jack O’Connor had one just like it.

No Desert Bighorn Sheep?  O’Connor’s favorite quarry, I believe, when they were still plentiful in Mexico.  Few hunting permits available in Texas each yr; probably cost no more than an African safari.

I associate you with M71 .348 Winchesters.  And yes, I saw a deluxe and standard .348 in the mix.

Nah we just use it for White Tail in Texas.  My Grandfather used it Antelope hunting once.  It’s taken the occassional hog, but I tend to use the 71s or the 86 for that now.

 

If I ever go elk hunting, I will probably use one of the 71s.

Yes sir. I still have those 2 M71s.  I had as many as 5 at one point, all prewar with bolt sights, but the other 3 have left my safe at this time.  I don’t see these 2 going anywhere.

I have liked me some .33 WCFs in the past, but I haven’t really found any that agreed condition and price with me.
