It looks like 2024 is The Year Of The Lever Action, but we’ve seen a familiar theme so far: Just about all the new lever guns are in .44 Magnum, .357 Magnum or some other cartridge that you’d expect in a revolver, but not an autoloader pistol. Taylor’s & Co. aims to change that with their new TC73, chambered in 9mm Luger.

Lever Action Rifles @ TFB:

This is good news for shooters who want to have a rifle chambered in the same cartridge as their handgun—but they only have a handgun chambered in 9mm. This has traditionally been a selling point of pistol-caliber lever guns, but until now, most autoloader shooters were out of luck. This is no longer the case.

It’s also good for shooters who want to shoot affordable bulk 9mm rounds. Some might also want to use the wide range of specialty loads available for 9mm.

And then, some shooters will just want a fine made-in-America lever gun. When Taylor’s & Co. says “made in the USA,” they really mean it, because every component on the TC73, even down to the screws, was made in the States.

Not your average Model 1873 clone. [Taylor’s & Co.]

Taylor’s & Co. says the rifle comes with a 10-round tube mag and “special features for cycling 9mm ammunition.” It does not say what those features are, but obviously the rifle differs slightly from the original Winchester 1873 design that inspired it.

Here’s what the Taylor’s & Co. website says about the new rifle:

With high quality fit and finish, true case coloring and smooth lines – the TC73 is easy on the eyes. But it’s what’s inside that makes it great! The highest quality machining is exhibited on the TC73 with our legendary Taylor Tuned action on each rifle. The smoothest rifle you will ever handle right out of the box. But don’t just take our word for it – with superior qualities such as improved carrier block design, lightened trigger pull, hardened screws and fully machined internal parts, the TC73 is a superior representation of the 1873 lever gun made with modern day technology and quality standards. Using the highest quality steel and the highest grade of case coloring with each receiver being quenched one at a time – we spared no detail. A rubber butt pad, and white bead front sight with a semi-buckhorn rear sight complete the finishing touches for a first-rate yet practical rifle.

Along with all those fine-finish details, the TC73 comes with a 5/8×24-thread muzzle. Not your grandpappy’s lever-action, not by a long shot.

MSRP for the TC73 is $2,099. See more info on the company’s website here.
