My wife and I have a couple of the older NA 73's they are fine. If they have had work done on them it depends more on quality of work than anything else. Her 73 in 38/357 is her favorite rifle.

The older Navy Arms '73s are typical Uberti.  There is no real "Good," "Bad," nor "indifferent" with them as their just Ubertis.  If you want them to play nice and share toys, they will need work.  Springs at a minimum.

 had Uberti 73 carbine .22lr which, although beat up when I purchased it, was reliable and accurate, I wished I'd kept it.
I now have a Uberti Yellow boy 66 carbine in .22 magnum, it is well made but the old style sights and my old eyes do not work well together, plus it weighs too much compared to my 9422.
I'm going to sell it but sadly I live in the UK.

I have one. It's actually more authentic to the original (outside appearance) than a modern Uberti. It has the cleaning rod compartment in the stock, front sight is soldered on the barrel, wood is not the overboard red color, etc.

Aren't these the Miruko Winchesters with Turnbull finishes on them and priced up another 65%?

Well, Slamfire did specify SRC.  I don't recall seeing that configuration on the Navy Arms / Turnbull Mirokus.  (Or an any Miroku '73 now that I think about it?)

I know this is an old thread, but this is really intriguing. I am a suckered for authenticity. Is this rifle that Cliff is referring to an older Navy Arms? Are there eras of NA 73s that are like this and others that are less authentic? Wanting to know what to look for. I am looking at buying a brand new Uberti and having it slicked up (but no un-authentic parts added) out of the box- I'd rather avoid any issues that some of the older Ubertis can come with, but the better authenticity that Cliff refers to with his NA rifle is really appealing.

What I was referring to is older Uberti. I would rather have a new one action. I wish they would have some of those little features that are more authentic on the new ones. Newer guns action and running features are much better. Get a new Cimarron and have it slicked up.

Thanks Cliff- that was plan A and I'll stick with it. Going to get a Cimarron through Long Hunter's in Amarillo and have them slick it up before sending it on to me. Cannot even say how excited I am to get my first 73 soon- been wanting one for many years.
