    No. It will not. It shoots 38-40 which is a pistol caliber. The 38-55 is a rifle caliber.

    But the 1873s shoots pistol calibers of the time. Not rifle calibers that were not invented yet.

    Yup, that’s a 38-40 Winchester Center Fire. Real sweet specimen too. I’ve got a mind to beat you all out of it and park it next to my 32-40, but mine is just a ‘94 commemorative. Good luck with the sale/trade. Should be a lot of interest.

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    and if one in every 100,000,000 M&M's contained enough cyanide to kill a person, the Mars candy company would be forced by public outcry to correct it———

    Truth. Not sure why the letter says .38 but my Ruger SBH Buckeye has a 10mm (which is .40 cal) cylinder and a 38-40 cylinder. Also a mystery why its not called 40-40 while the 44-40 is in fact .44 cal. I wish I could go back and ask Lucas McCain. lol

    Cuz....30-30, twenty twenty and Fifty fifty! Lol

    A few of the old calibers that were around at the advent of smokeless powder had a number designation for the
    Caliber-grains of Black powder. Like 45-70government which was 45 cal bullet and 70gr black powder charge (for the mild load!) and some cartridge names made less sense, mostly the American ones.

    These old rifles were chambered in .32-20, .38-40, or .44-40.
    The .38 caliber stamp on the rifle means that it is chambered in .38 - 40 caliber.
    Back in those days .38 - 40 was .38 caliber to everyone.
