    Winchester Model 1873 - made in 1890

    Yes, you read it correctly.
    This rifle is 129 years old.
    I will post one picture of the rifle and will happily share more with those interested, will also post the archive letter attesting to the fact that this is real.

    Looking to trade for old pistols as I don’t have room for long guns. I would be open to other items, just have to ask.

    Trade value $2000 OBO

    Would it shoot the 38/55?

    I don’t know the answer to that question. I have never shot this rifle and know very little about that round.

    Very doubtful. The books I have handy say the '73 was made in 32-20, 38-40, and 44-40. I don't believe the '73 action would handle the extra power of the 38-55. I'll bet a pepperoni pizza it's 38-40 (unless it's been altered sometime in the last 120 years)

    "38 WCF" was the original name for the 38-40. I'll take a deep pan.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.
