Original Winchester 1873 stripped upper receiver… Case color finish.  The “W” looks washed out on tang. This would be a great start for a project… $550.  $475 includes shipping.  No FFL required.

Ben,

Who did the case coloring? One of my concerns is was it blocked properly for the correct fit, taking in account for possible expansion and contraction due to the Heat process during C.C hardness? Which model 73 is this? Any serial number? Any other parts included?

Thanks,

Anthony

That looks like a Third model 38. If he showed the front side I could tell for sure.

Bob, what would make you think it is for a 38?  Just curious.

The step in the top of the receiver is only on the 38, 32 and 22’s. I could kind od see the mag tube hole in one picture which looked bigger than the 32 mag tube. So it its a 38 or it could of been a 22 since they used the 38 frame for the 22’s. That is the same way I can tell what caliber 73 a guy is carrying at gun shows by the step and tube size.

I was watching the movie Conagher with Sam Elliot last night and when he was going drop off the cliff you could see it was a 44 and was refinished.

I watched the same movie… it looked like a 20-inch short rifle in 44 WCF.  I like the ending!

It looks to be cut to 20″, forearm is too long and its has a cased receiver. In the scene where he and the young boy is helping drive the cattle and they are camping for the night there is a 73 carbine between them but I do see what looks to be another gun on the very left of the screen so I guess the boy had the carbine.

If I did decide to do something with this I would probably do the same thing as a nice C.C. receiver and not to try to misrepresent a Winchester in any way just make a nice short rifle that’s a good looker and fun to shoot! A short barrel sounds intriguing to me!

Thanks Bob.  For some reason I thought the 44 and 38 were the same?

Now later 44 carbines went to the step frame.
