W1163 RARE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 1895 VARIANT
Item # W1163
Cal 30 WCF. 20" bbl, full length mag tube and carbine butt. Sights include original ramp front sight making this the rare 94/95 variant. Winchester was a frugal manufacturer and never threw away parts. When the Model 95 was discontinued, surplus bbls were shortened from the breech end and re-chambered for 30 WCF cartridges. They were then used on the model 94. Another distinctive feature is the bbl band dovetailed into the bottom of the bbl. This gun is in very good condition. Bbl and mag tube have a good amount of blue/plum color. Some wear at the muzzle. Receiver has flaked and retains some blue in protected areas. Overall wood is good with just minor handling dents. Mint bore. Crisp tight action. Comes with printed article from the Winchester Collector magazine that describes the rarity of the Model 94/95 variant. Also comes with a Factory Letter that simply gives serial number application date. A rare unique gun!

W446 WINCHESTER PRE-64 94
Item # W446
Standard carbine in 32 Win Spl. Pretty good condition gun with nearly all blue remaining on the bbl and mag tube. Receiver also. Hardly any wear even at the serial number. This gun was not used very much. Unfortunately on the left side someone carved some numbers in it. Operation ID # that was popular in the 70's and 80's or a social security number? It is very visible. There is also a light scratch on the loading gate side that runs most of the length of the receiver. I don't know why but it appears someone applied a coat of varnish also. A good solid gun with very little usage.
Modern $ 775.
W1586 WINCHESTER 1894 SRC
Item # W1586 -27-275
There are very interesting markings on this 94. On the stock are the numbers "342" and "LAPD". We assume that is a rack number for the Los Angeles Police Dept but we have no provenance stating such. This gun is in the 810k serial range which puts manufacture date at 1917. It has had very little use. All the bbl blue is there and is bright and shiny. The inside is near perfect. The wood is very nice cond with just a couple of light handling marks. The receiver does have some flaking which is common in this serial range. A very nice low mileage with interesting markings.
Modern $ 2,775.
W1290 ANTIQUE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC
Item # W1290-27-274
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.
Antique $ 2,500 sale pending.
W1255 SCARCE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 38-55
Item # W1255-27-256
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!
Modern $ 1,895.
