GR79-0621-5184, Winchester Model 1873. 44-40 Cal. Cut barrel. 17 inch barrel. Gun is covered in an even brown patina. Gun shows honest ware on wood and metal. The ware on the right side of the forearm looks like saddle ware to me. There are traces of blue in protected places on the gun. Barrel address is clear. Functional mechanics. The story I got from this gun is that it came out of a family on the Black Foot Indian Reservation in Ft. Hall Idaho. I get lots of stories with guns but this could very well be true on this one. Iron was very valuable to Indians in the 1800s, they could not make it themselves so they would use “parts” of rifles or whatever else they could find that was iron to make useful tools for themselves. Barrel was cut, I have been told they would make some type of horse brush out of the ends of barrels. The rear site is replaced, I know that Indians made arrow heads out of them. The butt plate is also replaced, it could have been taken off and made into some type of tool. None of these parts would have been a must have for the gun to be used as a weapon. This is of course all opinion and cannot be proved. I do like this gun though and feel at the minimum it spent years in the saddle and carried by someone. The bore is bright, rifling is crisp with scattered very fine spots throughout bore. The hole that was drilled for the front site was drilled all the way through. The bottom of the site does not protrude into bore. Functional mechanics. Gun was made in 1887.
