W1290 ANTIQUE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC
Item # W1290-24-238
Nice early 4-digit serial number. Cal 32-40. Not too bad cond gun with the receiver mostly a typical plum/brown color. The bbl also displays the same color. Good bbl markings. A few dings and scrapes but overall good looking. Buttstock is also not bad. Good fit with just a little shrinkage at the toe. Some deep stain or oil applied years ago. Much has worn off but some still remains. Overall wood cond is exceptional for an 1894 gun. Bottom lever pivot piece is a brighter blue and most likely a replacement. Somewhat of an oversized saddle ring. Ladder style rear sight and standard front sight. The bore is way above average for a 32-40 and would be in the VG range. You do not find a lot of antique 94's anymore, especially in a saddle ring. This would be a great gun for any early Winchester collector.

W703 DELUXE GOLD GILT MODEL 94 CARBINE
Item # W703-24-272
Finest finish possible being gold gilt receivers. The Carbine has the typical carbine style stocks. Fancy 3X walnut carved and checkered style in F pattern. The receiver is done in style No. 7 factory pattern of scroll engraving. Cal 30-30. Tang sight, flip up rear sight and typical carbine front sight. This gun is in superb condition with vivid case colors on hammer and lever. Nearly all gold gilt on the frame, buttplate and bbl bands. All the high gloss lacquer finish on the stock.Many special order features. A carbine with dlx wood and carbine style butt is very unusual. Only 19 carbines were ever engraved and only 7 of them had carved wood. Only about 90 94's had gold gilt finish. Very rare gun that is well documented pictured in several publications. Excellent inside and out.

Item # W1141-24-217
This gun features the hooded ramp front sight and is in cal 38-55. It would have been one that was assembled out of parts during the war I assume. The gun is in fantastic cond with virtually all blue except some flaking on the lever extension on the bottom. Wood is in excellent+ cond with all orig lacquer. Orig sights. Mint bore. Very interesting gun. All orig. I don't believe I have seen one like this over the years. A fine gun.

W1255 SCARCE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 38-55
Item # W1255-24-229
You don't see a lot of SRC's in 38-55. This particuler gun is in well used condition but it looks like the user took care of it. Receiver has silvered out. Bbl has some blue in protected areas with the balance a brown/grey antique patina. Quite a bit of wear to the finish on the mag tube. Bore is fair with some roughness. Butt stock has numerous dings and scratches but fits nice to both upper and lower tang. Forearm has seen quite a bit of use and was evidently a scabbord gun. Dings and a slight piece missing by the bbl band but is solid. A decent old gun!
