For many Winchester Arms a "Factory Letter" is available from the Cody Museum for $55. This will tell when the gun was manufactured and shipped, any special features (target sights, extra length barrel, deluxe wood, etc), and sometimes where it was sent. Usually they were sent to a wholesaler, but occassionally they were special-ordered by an individual. If you won the lotto last week, maybe today you'll find out you own a gun made-to-order for Wyatt Earp. If the gun was returned to the Winchester factory for any repair or additional features, that will also be noted on the letter. Beyond that, there will be no history available for any particular firearm. General information about the Model 1873 is available in many reference books available from your local library.

Your Winchester model 1873 rifle which was made in the year 1890,and is considered a Winchester model 1873 third model will have 3 distinct values.If it is in below average condition then the value will be 750-1,000 dollars.If it is in average condition,then 1,000-1.600 dollars,if in above average condition,then between 1,650-2,300 dollars.I believe that all Winchester rifles of this age should be appraised by a Winchester collector assoc.member,and evaluated by him for a more approximate value.These are very highly collectable rifles.
