Both the Winchester Model 1873 and its predecessor, the Model 1866, were key to the winning of the American West. The 1866 played a key role in providing food and security during the building of the transcontinental railroad, which was completed in 1869. Only four short years after the meeting of the rails, the nation was in motion like never before and Winchester had an improved lever-action rifle: the Model 1873. With the ease and speed of travel offered by the new railroad system, the Model 1873 became indispensable to farmers, ranchers, and other settlers who were using the railroad as their way to "Go West."
The Model 1873 came West in the hands of huge numbers of people seeking the American Dream and looking for a new way of life. Over time, the Model 1873 proved itself as one of the greatest rifles in history, and earned its title as "The Gun That Won The West."

On May 10, 1869 the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads met at Promontory Summit, Utah, where the two were linked by a final, ceremonial spike made of gold. Our nation, still recovering from the Civil War, was finally unified by a transcontinental ribbon of steel stretching from sea to shining sea. The Winchester® Model 1873 Golden Spike 150th Anniversary Commemorative Rifle celebrates this monumental milestone of perseverance and innovation, which stands as one of the most significant events in American history.
The Winchester Model 1873 was introduced four short years after the completion of the transcontinental railroad. It soon made its way west with settlers, ranchers, farmers and tens of thousands of others who depended on it. They are the ones who made it The Gun That Won The West.
