Winchester?s Model 1873 was the ?Rifle that Won the West.? The 1873 was chambered in a new more powerful cartridge, the .44/40 ? a .44 caliber bullet propelled by 40 grains of black powder. However, one big factor that really insured the success of the 1873 was that Colt quickly responded by offering its frontier six-shooter chambered in .44/40. A cowboy could have a lever action rifle, a ?Peacemaker? and only need one cartridge belt.
Buffalo Bill Cody carried an 1873 and a pair of Colts chambered in .44/40 in 1876 when he worked as an Army scout. Chappo, son of Apache war chief Geronimo packed an 1873, as did most Texas Rangers along with every Old West cowboy worth his salt. Uberti has recreated the 1873 in four distinctive models including the 1873 Carbine and the Special Sporting Rifle with half-octagon barrel. All are chambered in .357 Magnum, .45 Colt and of course the old tried and true .44/40.
