Introduced by Winchester Repeating Arms Company as an improvement on their Model 1866, the Model 1873’s steel receiver construction meant it could stand up to stronger chamberings compared to its bronze alloy predecessor. This restored example from 1890 is chambered in .22 Short.
The Winchester Model 1873 .22 Rimfire was the first .22 caliber repeating rifle in America. Only around 19,000 were made between 1884 and 1904.
