The H&Rs are nice rifles.
I stand corrected after looking at the rifle closer, you are correct. Itís an 1873. The humble pie was filling. Lol. Thanks for the history lesson...

Did you get that one from a member on here? I sold one like it years ago and he refinished it , it looked great after the refinish.

No humble pie. For all I know H&R could have made an 1871 commemorative in 45/70.

I always wanted the Officers' Model Carbine when I was a kid, but they cost too much. By the time I grew up and had a job, I couldn't afford one - they cost too much. Figure that one out.
The H&Rs are nice.
