New Winchester 1873 with English Walnut Stocks

Sold

Description

While technically not a restoration, this project is a great example of how period-correct methods and finishes can be utilized to create a one-of-a-kind collectors item.

We had the pleasure of transforming a customer’s new Winchester 1873 into a personalized treasure. We built an all-new buttstock and forend using the customer’s own choice blanks of exhibition grade English walnut. The wood was fitted to a new ‘73 in .357 Magnum that features our color case hardening. The rifle’s full octagon barrel and magazine tube were then rust blued, and all small parts were charcoal blued. 

This is just one example of what we can do with customer-supplied lever guns. Let us know what projects you have in mind for your own collection.
