Question about 73 winchesters
I have an Italian made Henry rifle with an 18 inch barrel in 45 Colt. I really like the gun, but the new Cimarron saddle shorty has caught my eye. I'm not into cowboy action shooting, I just think my short Henry is an incredibly handy rifle and would like a '73 with a similar feel. I have no experience with '73s. Would it be lighter, heavier etc?
Also, if I got one in .357, would it be significantly heavier, could it handle most off the shelf .357 and is that a better general purpose rifle round than .45 Colt?
Thanks in advance.
