The Winchester 1873 is known around the world as "The Gun That Won The West."

Almost 150 years later the Model 1873 remains a cultural icon in the United States.

Originally manufactured between 1873 and 1923, the Model 1873 was a lever action rifle chambered in .44-40, the first centerfire cartridge.

Over time the Model 1873 would be chambered in .38-40 and .32-20, two popular handgun cartridges around the turn of the century.

A new 10-round Model 1873 with a 20″ barrel chambered in .357 Magnum is currently being manufactured by the Miroku Corporation for FN/Browning.

Take a closer look inside this classic cowboy gun and find out how the Winchester 1873 works with the video below.
