PGW Performance Parts for Winchester Model 73 Rifles


*Picture coming soon*

*MIROKU* Short Stroke Kit with Carrier

Our short stroke kit for the *MIROKU* Winchester model 73 re-model, with light weight aluminum carrier sells for $230.00. The lever throw is the same as that of our Super short stroke kit made for Uberti rifles. 

Our *MIROKU* Winchester short stroke kit will not work with Winchester's carrier. After testing Winchester's carrier, we have found that there are dimensional issues that interfere with the quality performance of our short stroke kit.


Winchester Light Firing Pin Extension

Our new Winchester light firing pin extension replaces the stock firing pin extension with all of it's safety devices, improving performance and reliability of your rifle.

PGW Performance F.P.E $40.00


PGW's New Action Springs

Here at Pioneer Gun Works, we have developed a brand new concept in light weight springs for your Uberti model 1873 or model 1866 rifle's lever and lifter arm.  Our "
Action Springs" are a high tech 21st century improvement  for a 19th century design. 

  While the piano wire type springs have been an improvement over the stock Uberti springs, they are a hassle to install and adjust for the proper feel. That's because bending wire to a specific shape while maintaining a high level of  dimensional and geometric precision isn't possible. 

  What we have done, was to machine a mounting base and  pivot arm from high strength steel, attaching them together with a hardened steel dowel pin at the hinge point, and used a tensioning rod to apply the correct amount of tension to give you a light lever feel while assuring positive function. Once installed, spring tension does not fade, the spring assemblies do not move, and there is no fitting or adjusting to do. And the mounting bases are tapped with the correct metric thread, so they will accept your Uberti screws or our heat treated screws.

  Our Action Springs are the highest quality, most precise springs that you can buy for your rifle's lever and lifter arm tensioning needs.

  Our Action Springs are designed for use with PGW short stroke kits. Installation of Action Springs with NON-PGW lifter arm will require modification to that lifter arm.


Available now for $60.00 a pair.

Pioneer Gun Works Teams Up With
Badman Bullets!

  We are pleased to announce that Badman Bullets are now available through our website. We've just added  a selection of cowboy caliber bullets to our online store and a new page has been added to our website to show the bullets that are available.

  We have been asked many times to recommend a high quality bullet that will feed well through the custom rifles that we build and have a high degree of accuracy as well. Badman Bullets easily meets both of those requirements. 

Bullet purchases, ADDED to our PGW performance parts orders, will not count toward our regular free shipping for purchases ver $200.00.



Stronger & Smoother Super Short Stroke Kit

  It's been considered common knowledge up until now that a shorter lever throw resulted in a stiffer action. That is no longer true. In 2011, we re-engineered our super short stroke kit to make it just as smooth as our standard short stroke kit! So, there is no longer a trade off between length of lever throw and smoothness of operation.  It can be used with confidence in 45's as well as 38's.

  We've also strengthened the rear toggle link by closing the open end of the channel that the lever pin rides in. These changes make our Super Short Stroke Kit the smoothest and strongest that you can buy!

Super or Standard Short Stroke Kit - $160.00


Improved Aluminum Carrier

  In 2012, we modified our small caliber aluminum carriers to make it easy to reload over the top. When you have a stage where you need to reload your rifle, simply open the lever, grab your reload round from your belt, place it on top for the carrier, push down, and close the lever. There's no need to reload through the gate. Reloading over the top is much faster!

PGW Performance Light Weight Carrier $60.00


           Model 97, 6 round conversion kits.

We have a new kit available that will allow your model 1897 shotgun to hold six rounds instead of the stock capacity of five! Perfect for Wild Bunch! Easy to install and comes with fully illustrated installation instructions.

Model 97 Six Round Conversion Kit - $30.00
