Lever Action

What are yalls thoughts on the Uberti remake of the Winchester 1873 lever action rifle? Is Uberti a good brand? It comes chambered in either .357 mag, .45, or .44/40. Which round would be cheaper to shoot? Which round would be better to hunt with?

This will be my first rifle (firearm for that matter). I plan to use it mostly for gun range shooting and some hunting for when my bud invites me on his leases.

Uberti 1873 Rifle and 1873 Carbine

Thanks for all the input guys

I have heard some good things about them. They are very nice repeaters. I would look on GB though and see if you can find a better deal though unless you want new.

Uberti makes good reproduction firearm's.

They are used a lot in Cowboy Action Shooting competition.

By far .357 will be the least expensive to shoot. .357 is a very popular cal. in SASS as well.

You could hunt medium and smaller game up to about 75 yds. depending on circumstances with all three rounds listed.

My bud invites me on his leases every year and i never go 'cause i've never had a rifle, which is why i feel it's time to finally get one. And i'd be hunting deer/boar with it. Altough to be honest i probably won't hit anything for a while lol.

Anyways my heart isn't set on the Uberti remake or it having to be new....all i really want is a nice lever action rifle. The Rossi lever actions are nice too. I'm open to any suggestions on brands.

I guess since this is my first firearm what i really need is one chambered for a cheap round i can practice with a heck of a lot. Suggestions?

Question: Are lever actions reliable? Do the internals break alot?
