    Wtb, 66 or 73 lever action

    Just putting feelers out.
    Looking for a 66 or 73 winchester lever in any pistol calibre to buy.
    Must be in reasonable condition for not stupid money.
    Can anybody here help a bruvva out?

    $100,000 is not far feched for an original 66 in good condition or maybe im thinking the 1860 henry which was the Predecessor to the 66
    I think the winchester is still up near that figure besides 44 henry rimfire ammunition would be pretty hard to get in our days

    So one would think you are probably looking for a Replica I have a uburti copy of the 66 winchester made in Italy but unfortunately im not interested in selling mines 44-40 which is as close to the 44 henry rimfire as you can get in a center fire cartridge
    But I think uburti also make them in 38spl and I think another cartridge aswell
    Just a note replica is built to the original design and still has weaknesses although the replicas are nitro profed I still wouldn’t suggest super hot ammo

    Good luck with your search

    I think i recall the 1860 henry being close to the 100k usd mark
    I think from memory the 66 ranged from 10k upto 30k usd depends on model

    Sorry guys, no it does not need to be winchester brand at all.
    I am looking on behalf of my flatty who is into 3gun and cowboy shooting big time, so I figured if anyone would know of anything around it would be you guys.
    Cheers.
