Lever-action aficionados: Rejoice! Uberti has figured out how to combine the Best of the West with the marvels of modern engineering in a new high-performance lever-action rifle. The 1873 lever-action competition rifle is a Winchester 1873 replica that incorporates several features that make it competition-ready right out of the box. For instance, an action job slicks up the trigger and shortens the lever's stroke for accurate and rapid-fire duties. A 20-inch octagonal barrel allows for greater maneuverability and yet provides the accuracy that is required in fast-action competition. A shotgun-style buttstock provides for quick shouldering and a gold front sight bead aids in quick-target acquisition.

The rifle is available in .357 Mag. and .45 Long Colt, and is finished with a color case-hardened receiver and a blued barrel stock. MSRP is $1499.
