If the 73 and it's togle linkage bolt and design cannot take high pressure loads and cartridges then why is Uberti is offering a 44Mag 1873 Short Rifle??? Do they know something more that we do not? A slick 1873 chambered in .44 Magnun would be something and the 44 Mag chamber pressure is way-over what people on this thread concider maximum pressure for the 1873 design. So what gives??? How good is the design and how much pressure can the design take??? Will the rifle shoot loose or blow-up after a 100 rounds or 500??? Or does Uberti know something we don's or have they modified the action lock-up to handle the increased pressure of the .44 Magnum???
