    Default Anyone have experince with Win 1873 Rifle clones?

    I have a couple 1886, 1892 clones, plus a couple originals.
    I have shot a few real 1873s.

    But I have never shot or even fondled a 1873 Italian made clone. Does anyone have much experience with these? For some reason the voices in me head are saying it might be interesting to buy one....

    I have one in 44/40, it is the long rifle with a magazine capacity of 13 rounds, it shoots very well, never had a problem, I have used it in Cowboy action shoots, never failed me.

    Have you ever seen any for sale up here? Either a Japanese made Winchester or a Uberti?
