Rifle that is true to the original

today I was looking at a few leverguns in 45 colt and it started me wondering on which manufacture makes a rifle that is true to the original to the 94 or 73 without being original. so far the only ones I found are Cimarron arms.

Uberti Model 1873 in .44-40...

Then get some virgin brass and load them up with 40 grains of FF black powder, top them off with 200 grain lead round nose flat point and you'll be about as authentic as you can get.

And yes, Cimmaron gets their Winchesters from Uberti.

Perdersoli makes a beautiful 1886 and 86/71 in 45-70 if you want something with more wallop.

You realize of course that the original rifles were not chambered in .45 Colt right? As in post above the big bore offering was .44-40.

How true to the original? I thought the 45 Colt really came in with the 94 Win era and not in the 73 or 92.

The 45 Colt was never chambered in the original 73 or 92, just 44-40, 38-40 and 32-20. They started chambering the 45 Colt in these rifles relatively recently when Cowboy Action Shooting became popular.

Question

I always thought the 73 was akin too a long action for large calibers, the 92 being a smaller action was for pistol sized calibers??

These rifles are very popular in .45LC as the cartridge is readily available and a bit cheaper than .44-40, even the cowboy loads. Match the rifle with an Uberti 1873 pistol and you can relive the days of the wild, wild west!
