Hello Harry and congratulations on your model 1873. I'm envious. I hope someday I will be able to afford one. It's my dream rifle, and I'd like one like your's, maybe in .357 cal.

Winchester never made one of those rifles in 357 Magnum. Uberti does, however, and you can buy one in various barrel lengths, starting at 20 inches. They are also available in many different calibers, the most common ones being 357, 45 Colt, and 44-40. These rifles are quite popular with Cowboy Action Shooting groups, altho not many people can find a fine rifle made by Winchester like the one pictured in this thread.
