Here is an original '73 that was my major purchase this year.  

Made in 1886,  26 in. octagon barrel, blade front sight, flat top ( target ) barrel sight.   Bore an 8 on a scale of 1 - 10.  I added the Marbles tang sight.  Have shot it with the barrel sight off hand at 30 yards and shoots just great.   We will be making a new shooting range in the new year and when I get to shoot it at 100 yards will post target picture.

I'd love to own an original '73win. The '73Win , beyond doubt, my personal fav rifle ever. Just would love to someday own a 'real' one.

When I looked and shopped around for a "cowboy" lever gun I considered carefully all the models ( ie. '92 or '73) makes ( Italian, Brazilian ) . . . etc. . . . and came to the conclusion that I was best off in the long run if I bought a model 1873 that was made by WINCHESTER.   So I bought one that turned out to be a "project gun", . . . but which turned out to be a good one to become a "Winchester Mechanic" on, . . .  and I got it shootable.  Now have a second one that is in really fine condition ( fine "shooter" condition not fine "collector" condition).   I'm real happy that I chose to buy "real" Winchesters.    Smiley
