The 1873 rifle is known around the world as the “Rifle that Won the West.” It was originally chambered in .44-40 – a .44 caliber bullet propelled by 40 grains of black powder. Colt ultimately insured the success of the 1873, by quickly offering its frontier six-shooter chambered in .44/40. A cowboy could have both a lever action rifle and his “Peacemaker” and only need one cartridge belt.
For 2010, 137 years after the first 1873 lever-action was produced, Uberti introduces a new addition to the 1873 lineup – the 1873 Carbine chambered in .44 Remington Magnum. This hard hitting round, combined with such a versatile lever-action rifle, creates a fabulous hunting rifle out of a true American classic firearm. The 1873 Carbine sports a 19-inch round barrel, a blue steel frame, case-hardened lever and an A-grade walnut stock.
Uberti’s 1873 lever-action rifle is also available in .45 Colt, .357 Mag, and the original .44/40. Available in multiple barrel sizes and shapes, Uberti has brought the most sought after lever-action of its time back to life and it’s more powerful than ever.
