      1. @Bob,the original Winchester 1873 44-40 weren’t made in Japan ! Back then all American weapons were made in America, not Japan ! I have a Winchester model 94 30-30 I bought in ’79 and it wasn’t made in Japan either. New Haven,Conn.

    1. I agree with Bob and i am still upset because a panic occurred when they announced production being shut down then started back up.

    2. The Winchester does not even come close to looking as good as the other replica model 1873’s already on the market. Companies like EMF, Uberti, Taylor & Co., and especially Cimmaron produce a significantly more esthetically pleasing weapon, with more barrel lengths and caliber options.

    3. Bought one a month ago. Great rifle.
      Wood to metal fit is perfect. Great blue/
      black metal finish. Shoots 38sp and 357
      without a problem and accurately.No rebounding
      hammer. Half cock hammer safety. Oiled wood finish.
      Just like a original.

    4. Where can I find unprimed brass for the winchester model-94 356 caliber. I have been looking for over a year, the gun is not much good if can not find brass to reload. A box of shells are 75.00 dollars which is not very good for me.
