Uberti USA Celebrates 150 Years of the Model 1873 with Special Anniversary Edition
January 2023, Accokeek, MD – Uberti, the world’s leading manufacturer of classical, single-action revolvers, western heritage black powder revolvers, and cartridge rifles, recognizes 2023 as the 150th anniversary of the famed Winchester Model 1873 lever-action—the "gun that won the West." To celebrate this milestone, Uberti is offering a commemorative edition of this classic firearm.
Following the same proven design as the original, the Uberti 150th Anniversary 1873 rifle is built on all-steel frame and features a 20-inch octagonal and blued steel barrel. Chambered in .45 Colt or .357 Mag./.38 Spl., this premium lever-action comes with an A-Grade satin walnut stock and forend. The warm, rich tones of the hardwood offer the perfect complement to the case-hardened frame and lever.
The star of this rodeo is the rifle's authentic-style engraving. Copied from an original 19th-century Winchester frame, Italian engraver Atélier Giovanelli executed the classical design.
While the 150th Anniversary 1873 rifle is built for field work and optimally sized for foot- or saddle-carry, it can also serve as a centerpiece for any western-themed collection or display.
