ACCOKEEK, MD –-(Ammoland.com)-  Uberti is pleased to introduce a new high-performance lever-action rifle.

The 1873 Competition Rifle was created to provide competition shooters with a higher level of performance in a lever-action package.

This is a Winchester 1873 replica, incorporating several features that make it competition-ready right out of the box. An action job slicks up the trigger and shortens the lever’s stroke for accurate and rapid fire duties.

The 20-inch octagonal barrel allows for greater maneuverability and yet still provides the accuracy that is required in fast-action competition. A shotgun-style buttstock provides for quick shouldering and a gold front sight bead aids in quick target acquisition. Uberti’s 1873 Competition Rifle carries an industry leading 5-year warranty.

The fit, feel and finish of the 1873 Competition Rifle is similar to the old west models, but with improvements that make the gun stronger and easier to handle. These features provide modern advances and variations that make the 1873 Competition Rifle one of the best lever-action rifles on the market today.

“For the shooter looking for a race-ready gun out of the box to provide the edge when they step to the line,” said Dan Rice, Uberti Product Manager, “the new 1873 Competition Rifle punches that dance card every time.”

COMMON SPECIFICATIONS: Calibers: .357 Mag.; .45 LC Barrel Length: 20″ Total Length: 39” Number of Grooves: 6 Twist: Right Weight: 8 lbs. Finish: Color case-hardened receiver, blued barrel Stock: A-Grade walnut with rubber recoil pad Capacity: 10+1  MSRP: $1499

I initially purchsed an Uberti copy of the colt burgess in 45LC. I traded that in for the 1873 Uberti 45LC comp ready rifle and what a sweetheart to shoot in cowboy action.
I since had the forearm & hand grip checkered in a winchester pattern and saving up to have Jimmy Spurs put some additional final touches to her to enchance the radip firing to the next level.


The only thing I don’t like it the rubber butt pad. It robs some of the authenticity from the gun. The recoil from a .45 colt isn’t that bad. If you think it is shoot your .30-06 for a while.

I agree completely. There are leather butt covers for sale on ebay. They look really cool and we’re made for SASS shooting. I considered buying the regular 1873 from Uberti and taking it to a gunsmith for modification but then this decreases the value of the gun.
