Default original 1873 barrel

Did the original Winchester 1873 rifle have a round barrel, half octagon, or full octagon barrel? Thanks in advance.

Unlike now days back then the gun companies started the saying "Have it your way". You could order your gun with about any barrel length, round-oct-or half and half barrel, some models offered different weight barrels, get set triggers(single or double), special wood, curved butt or not, whatever sights you wanted, whatever finish you wanted. Pretty much if you could think of it they would make for you.
