    For the Cowboy in All of Us - Winchester 1873 is Back in 357/38sp

    I just love the lever action rifles. I had a couple Winchester 30-30's but sold them due to ammo pricing since I don't hunt. Winchester is bringing back the rifle that won the West with the Model 1873.

    I still have a Henry chambered in .22 and never get tired of the sound of the well made lever action on it. Great fun to shoot but I'm thinking about one day getting the 357/38sp similar to the Winchester above and at a better price point.

    Those are nice. MSRP is $1300.00 What do you think they'll actually go for?

    Good question. Maybe $1000-$1100.

    Beautiful gun!

    Being a Miroku, it's very well made.

    Nice but I still think that I would go with a Marlin

    Recently read a review which was overall favorable but the gun did not like to eat .38 special, was fine with .357.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    As much as I'd like to have one, I can't justify the price.

    I'm with you. It's on my "must have" list, but not that bad.

    I haven't decided which 38/357 lever action I want, but the winchester is more than I'd like to spend.

    I'd like a Marlin but I've heard the quality has nosedived. I won't buy a Rossi.

    I have a Henry .22lr that I like. Seems like that'll be my answer.

    One of my daughters has a Henry in .357/38 (same as her pistol) and she LOVES it----other than the cost of ammo......

    Love those Henry rifles. .357 or .44 in the Big Boy series would be just about right. Heavy, compared to most other stuff out there, but great-looking. By all accounts, they can be some of the sweetest, smoothest units around. Mmmmm.

    I have the Henry Big Boy in .357 mag. Excellent gun and at a much better price point than the Winchester.

    I do like that Winchester...just not the price tag.

    Picked up a used Henry H001T .22 the other day for a fair price. Hoping to shoot it tomorrow. Gotta love that Missouri black walnut.

    Love the concept, price is too steep! I'll probably get one of the other options. I want to start reloading and .38, .357 seems a good place to start. With rifle and pistol in same caliber a lot going on there.
