Here are my current two, but I am looking for another. The second photo is the bottom rifle in the first photo with it's clothes on.

My CGH marked 1873: I'm trying to authenticate it by finding my serial number among the Citizens Guard of Hawaii records at the Hawaii State Archvies, in an effort to replicate the research done by John A. Bell.  Wish me luck.

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!

Thank's Abilene , I do not own a musket , and probably never will . Unless I ever run across a 1873  Spanish contract musket   and I doubt that will happen . ,,,DT

                                                      Maybe  if I find the right 73 that is damaged or stripped / parts  . But right now in the middle of a Plain's Rolling Block build  in 50-70 , have plenty to do .,,,DT
