My Brother-in-law has a Ruger P90DC in excellent condition. He was asked to trade it for a Navy
Arms 1873 Winchester
Replica in 44-40 that is also in excellent condition. Is this a good trade? What is the availability and
cost of 44-40 ammunition? Thanks in advance for any
information that can be provided.

The NA 1873 goes for about $800 new so it is a good deal for your brother in-law.
44-40 ammo is readily available and is a very common round used by Cowboy Action Shooters and other.

The Navy Arms '73s are nice guns. 44-40 ammo is easy to get,but at $15-17 for a box of 50,it ain't really cheap. Of course,loading your own is an option,but the 44-40 is a necked cartridge,so the extra step of lubing before sizing is required.

DEC - Probably too late but tell him to go fer it. I shoot .44 WCF and love it. I do not lube the cases and have no problems running them through the steel dies.
