1873 A Firearms Bonanza!


Subscribe to Channel

1873 was a ballistical bananza, a watershed year in firearms and cartridge development. Things I should / could have mentioned in this video: The Winchester 1866 preceded the 1873, of course, but it also fired the same Henry .44 Rimfire cartridge. The Spencer rifle actually fired a .56 caliber rimfire, not 54, as the werido in this video states. :-) He knew that.
