I have a most caliber covered in my reproduction for old hyphen guns on waiting list for the 38-40 , so thought would start to be on the look out for a 25-20 to fit in with the crew of 1873 n 1876's ,
What is out there or would I need to customize a 1873 ?

Thanks and as soon as I can get down the stairs I'll get a family photo of them .

Do you have the 22LR? Not sure if they ever made a 25-20 in a 73. Because I don't know Winchester's. If they didn't, and you want to make one, you would have to start with a 32-20.

Winchester didn't chamber the 25-20 in the 1873, but like Schtoolee said they did chamber the 22, and they are a very cool variation!

Would like to see Uberti make one with case coloring , I'd sell a few others to put it in the safe .

I thought about the 32-20 make over ,, but those don't come along for sale ,, I lucked out on mine ,, now can't think of where I got it .

There is never a ending a the wanting for a lever of any cal for some reason .

My FIL had a 73 in 22 SHORT briefly. It was from my MIL uncles estate sale. Pretty nice shape but it had some extra holes and the barrel had been relined, he still sold it for a $300 profit.

They made them. There is a nice picture of a Model 1894 Deluxe .25-20 in Brophy's book at the top of page 212.
They were also made more recently, I have a Model 1894CL with a serial number showing a 1988 build. It has the original style receiver.
