Item No.: 7938 Price : $1,995.00
Item : ANTIQUE, WINCHESTER MODEL 1894 RIFLE, MADE IN 1897
Description :
Here is an original Winchester Model 1894 Rifle chambered for the .30 WCF (.30-30 Winchester) cartridge. This is a very early production Model 1894, having been made in 1897. As such, it is considered an antique arm. This rifle is in very good condition, with about 50% of its factory blued finish remaining. The blue is strong on the barrel and magazine tube. The receiver has less finish and some significant surface pitting, especially on the left side. There is also some pitting on the left side of the lever. The butt plate has a dark brown patina. The bore is a little dark and frosty, but has strong rifling throughout. The mechanics are excellent. The stock is in good shape, with usual small dings and scratches from use. There is a small crack on the upper right side of the handguard. It has not separated and looks like a scratch. The rear sight has three different leaves, but these are frozen with age. The 26" full octagon barrel is marked "Nickel Steel Barrel Especially For Smokeless Powder". Pre-1898 Model 1894 rifles are seldom encountered. Stock no. 20742
