Best Answer

The Winchester Model 1873 was not invented by a single person, but instead was the culmination of Winchester's continual efforts to make improvements to older designs. The basic design was originally patented by Henry B. Tyler (the inventor of the original Henry Repeating Rifle), which was then taken over by Oliver Winchester, improved upon, and released as the Winchester Model 1866. The Model 1873 was the next evolution of the Model 1866, and the advent of the centerfire cartridge versus a rim fire cartridge. Bert H.
