I’ve never been much of a rifle guy. The extent of my collection consists of a lonely 10/22. When I think of pretty long guns, smoothbores immediately come to mind. But I have to admit that a beautiful lever gun is a joy forever. Particularly when you’re talking about a custom version like Navy Arms’ Winchester-made 1873 replicas. At $2,500 you may have to scrape all the spare change from under the couch cushions, but think how satisfying it’ll be the first time you slip a .357 or .45 Long Colt round into it and pull the trigger. Press release after the jump . . .
Navy Arms has returned to the replica business with a completely new line of 1873 lever action rifles built exclusively for Navy Arms to their specifications by Winchester, finished by Turnbull Restorations, and available through fine stocking dealers.
For over fifty years, Navy Arms supplied superior replica firearms primarily built in Italy. The sale of identical product by numerous importers made it impossible for Navy Arms to provide to its customers the unique products and features that built Navy Arms reputation as a superior replica firearms company.
Now, in collaboration with Winchester and Turnbull Restorations, Navy Arms has in production, and delivery, a new generation of 1873 rifles with features and finishes not seen on any other production 1873 rifle.
Navy Arms Winchester 1873 rifles are in production and shipping to fine stocking dealers nationwide, including being featured in Cabelas Gun Libraries across America.
