This 1873 is in 32 WCF which is scarce in a 73 SRC. Quite a bit of Western flair. It has that "been there done that" look to it. Must have been carried A LOT in a scabbard. The end of the buttstock has a lot of wear and a worn portion on the bottom where you can see it rubbed against the saddle scabbard. There is a couple of initials and one corner has been filled and repaired. Stock is solid. It kinda looks good with the condition of the rest of the gun. The forearm wood has a chip out in front of the bbl band. It has rounded off and must have happened years and years ago. Metal on the gun is pretty much a silver grey with some light brown patina. It does have the original rear ladder type sight with the 1873 marking. Bore is fair. Action is relatively nice. Original dust cover. This would be a good conversation piece and would look great above your fireplace or in your hunting lodge!
