    My thanks to all who posted here. Some pretty astute stuff, but so far, no answer to the basic question "was there choke in Winchester's 1873 barrels bored smooth for shot?"

    Well nobody's perfect. If these were really special order items (and my only old Winchester catalogue is 1899, when the 1873 was something of a relic in the Winchester line), my guess is that buyers could have it with or without choke, and both may exist.
