The Comanchero looks period correct yet offers a faster lever than the standard Model '73, plus it was fast when we pushed it and accurate when we were taking our time.

Old-time roll marks on the tang identify the Taylorís as a Model 1873. Uberti manufactured the rifles to the specs provided by Taylorís; in fact, all three rifles were manufactured by Uberti.
The Comanchero featured a leather-wrapped loop, which some testers thought helped shooting comfort.
Lever-action rifles of this period use a hook lever, which keeps the lever locked to the stock.
We liked the look and comfort of the leather-covered Taylorís buttstock.
We noticed a small bit of checkering chipped away during use. There are some areas where a bump or a bang will knock off a piece of wood.
The Taylorís is on top of a replica Model í73 that does not have a short-stroke lever. Notice the difference in how much less the Taylorís lever need to travel forward.
