 Here's some (moving) pictures of my Stoeger (Uberti) '73.

Nice job! Thanks! I have, ahem, a lot of guns, but my Uberti 1873 is my favorite reproduction. It's a fine gun.

Gotta agree with Griff.  I have at least one of every model, Henry to '95 and my favorite is a '73 carbine.

Nice, I really like the looks of that carbine next to the 22 rifle. That's one thing on my bucket list as I've never owned an original 73 carbine. Came real close to buying one a couple years ago.

I have had several SRC's, each time trying to find one in better condition. I think I can stop with this one, it is a real nice one in 38-40 which is scarce in the 1873 SRC lineup...





This is it next to an experimental Whitney Kennedy "S" lever 45-60...

I never considered myself a failure...I started out at the bottom and happen to like it here!
