W1154 WINCHESTER 1873 14 INCH SHORT RIFLE; Original 14 inch octagon barrel with full mag chambered in 44 WCF caliber with rifle style butt. As expected these are never really found in good condition. All metal surfaces are a dull gray patina with scattered light pin prick pitting throughout. Corners of the octagons are slightly rounded. Bore is not very good. Forearm fits and looks good. Stock is a little ill fitting at the tangs. This is a very rare rifle being as the 14 inch is the shortest barrel length and in 44 WCF. Gun is featured in James Gordon’s Book “Winchesters New Model Of 1873 A Tribute” on page 243.  Complete with a Factory letter.
