It's the favourite rifle of the 'gamers' as it lends itself well to short stroking. No, I don't own one.

I have two '73s. A long rifle and a short rifle, neither are short stroked.  I'm not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination. If there only 3 in my category, I'm guaranteed 3rd place.  Wink

One '73 I could live with is the Uberti octagonal Short Rifle in 44-40. Just don't want to pay for one.

Had a Uberti '73 1 of 1000 rifle in 44-40. Beautiful rifle to look at, but I didn't like shooting it and couldn't wait to get rid of it. Too much rife for the calibre.

I have an original octagon barreled rifle that had been shortened to short rifle length. I had to have it relined. It shoots like a hot dam. It is still my favorite, although I mostly use an Uberti '66 in .38Spl.

Yes, just bought a 44-40 SRC with a short rifle barrel replacement with .433 grooves.
Thinking about a new barrel, she is not original anymore so she won't lose.
Looking for a Uberti rifle but wondering about their new 20 to 1 twist accuracy potentiel.
