Reproduction of the Model 1873 repeating lever action rifle, with simulating loading, firing and casing ejection mechanism.

This is arguably Denix's most realistic replica yet.

The Model 1873 was a repeating rifle with lever action, that is, it allowed several shots to be fired before reloading, ejecting the old casing and replacing it with a new one by operating a lever attached to the trigger guard; hence the term "repeating rifle".
The Model 1873 was the most widely used rifle of its time, due to its steel structure and because it used the same central percussion cartridges as revolvers of that period. That allowed the shooter to carry two different weapons with the same type of ammunition. It was produced in such big quantities that it became a common element in the western United States, receiving the nickname of "The gun that won the West", due to its roots and versatility. It was the inspiration for the film "Winchester '73," shot in 1950, starring with James Stewart and directed by Anthony Mann.
Travel to the American western with the historical reproduction of this DENIX rifle, a weapon very appreciated by historical reenactors and weapon collectors!

      While the look of the prop is nice, the level action is extremely loose. Giving 1/4 inch left to right wiggle at all times. While cocked there is about 1/2 inch wiggle gap vertical from the lever to the stock. I purchased for the action but that is, unfortunately, the worst part of this model.

      The whole rifle flexes as you carry it. It feels like a wet nudle. The problem is the mag tube doesn't go all the way to the receiver under the front handguard making the barrel flimsy and the barrel is only half a cylinder so it bends easily I got mine with a barrel that looked like a banana. I bent it back and shimmed the handguard because that's the only real support the under side of the barrel has. The 1866 is leagues better even though it's not shell ejecting replica. If you are handy with tools the 1873 is fixable.
