Winchester Model 1873, 1 of 1000
Log #2172


Description : The Winchester 1 of 1000 is one of the most sought after Winchester Models ever made.  Originally advertised as a rifle capable of shooting with “unerring accuracy”, the 1 of 1000 models have a certain “aura” surrounding them.

 Originally offered in 1875 for the Model 1873 and then the Model 1876, it did not take Winchester long to realize that having a “best” grade rifle was counter productive to sales.  By 1877, Winchester had dropped the 1 of 1000 from there catalog.

This Model 1873 is an original 1st Model rifle but was not built as an “original” 1 of 1000 Model.  The restoration of this rifle and subsequent upgrade work has transformed this rifle into one of the most desirable Winchester Models ever built.

Work to this rifle included a new barrel, new magazine tube, complete metal polish, full mechanical re-build, new stocks, factory H-pattern checkering and metal finishing using the original process used by Winchester when the rifle was built.

Select 3Xfancy stocks, checkering and Case Color Hardening are all options that were available on original 1 of 1000’s.
