A new Miroku 1873

(1/1)

BikerTom:
It has a rotating "hook"/"latch" just behind the lever.  None of my other lever actions have that.  I know what it does, but why's it necessary?

Abilene:
Well, I guess the Winchester designers wanted it there!  :) 

All '73's and '76's have it.

LB001:
It keeps the lever locked in a closed position, as might be necessary when riding a horse.

I was hoping that was the case.  Authenticity, and all.  Even though mine is a repro, obviously. 

Thanks.

I never would have guessed that.

Thanks.
