The Model 1873 was a great improvement over the Model 1866. Improvements included the introduction of center fire cartridges, a mortise cover or dust cover over the ejection port, and a forged iron (later steel) receiver and buttplate. Major evolutionary changes of the Model 1873 are noted by variations in the configuration of the finger lever and the mortise cover. Most of these rifles were chambered in .44/40 W.C.F. In 1870, Colt's began chambering its single action revolver for the same cartridge, and the two arms became popular and famous in the winning of the West. This rifle has third type mortise cover and flat topped lever for engaging safety (c. 1879 and later).
Magazine capacity: rifle- 15 cartridges;
carbine- 12 cartridges;
