Uberti USA 1873 Limited Edition Short Rifle Deluxe for Shooters and Collectors
ACCOKEEK, Md. – It is perhaps the most iconic rifle from the era, one widely deployed across the Old West and later glorified in American cinema. The Winchester 1873 was the result of decades of improvement and experimentation; it was light and reliable, perfectly balanced and proportioned.
Available in limited quantities for 2018 only, Uberti USA is bringing this iconic firearm of the Old West to shooters and collectors with enhancements that take this otherwise-basic platform to new heights of beauty and function.
Chambered in .45 Colt with a 20-inch octagonal barrel, the 1873 Limited Short Rifle Deluxe features a rich case-hardened steel frame and lever and an A-Grade walnut stock and forend. The rifle has a 10+1 capacity while weighing a lithe 8.2 pounds.
The rifle is fully engraved using an original pattern from the 19th century featuring game and scroll patterns. The engraving is hand-chased by the renowned Atelier Giovanelli, making each piece wholly unique and highly prized by collectors.
The easily recognizable “John Wayne” loop on the 1873 Limited Edition Short Rifle Deluxe looks great and enhances the iconic nature of the firearm. In addition to looking great, the loop was used in the Old West – not just in movies – as it allowed gloved hands to operate the rifle smoothly.
