For the Style of rifle that you have (Determined in Step #2), note that barrel length is measured from the end of the barrel tip (past the front sight), to the end of the barrel threads (beyond where the barrel inserts into the receiver in the middle of the gun). In the 1873 Winchester, you can measure from the top of the receiver from where the bolt opening ends, to the barrel tip, to get an accurate overall barrel length. As an example, in the Carbine (pictured below), which has a 20' barrel, the measurement from the barrel tip to the receiver front is only 19 1/4 '. In order to add the distance of the barrel threads, you need to keep measuring into the receiver until you reach the end of the threads at the bolt/receiver opening (see where arrow points to in picture below). This will give you the correct barrel length measurement of 20'.
