W1586 WINCHESTER 1894 SRC

Item # W1586 -25-244

W1586  WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 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.

W1441 WINCHESTER MODEL 94 IN 32 WS

Item # W1441-25-229

W1441  WINCHESTER MODEL 94 IN 32 WS It appears this Winchester has been through some changes over it's lifetime. The serial number is 990k. The front half of the gun is off a 64. Where the model is stamped has been filed lightly and stamped 94. Bbl is 24". Another oddity, there is a saddle ring on it. Rear sight is the flip type and the front sight is the later 64 style ramp. Receiver has quite a bit of blue remaining. Worn at the carry point. A possible re-blue on the receiver. Maybe when they changed the bbl.?. It does look very nice. Shotgun butt on this butt with hard rubber butt plate that has a couple of cracks. Nothing missing. Stock is in VG cond with just a slight splinter missing in top right hand corner. Forearm is very dark but cond is VG. This gun does have a great bore going for it. This gun is just begging to go on a deer, bear or wild bore hunt!!

W1290 ANTIQUE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC

Item # W1290-25-230

W1290  ANTIQUE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 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.

W1051 FACTORY GOLD INLAID WINCHESTER MODEL 94 RIFLE

Item # W1051-24-246

W1051  FACTORY GOLD INLAID WINCHESTER MODEL 94 RIFLE This is probably the best 94 that has surfaced in the last half dozen years. It is either a #1 gold inlaid or a #2. I am not really sure. It has 4 gold inlaid animals with a pair of moose in a setting on one side and a pair of deer on the other. Also features numerous gold inlaid lines with swirls and loops and borders. A lot of uncommon motifs on a Winchester. It is a high numbered gun in the 800k serial range. Features a 26" oct bbl in 30 cal. Orig sights include frat top sporting rear sight and Lyman folding tang sight. Pistol grip checkered 3X grade wood in excellent+ condition retaining nearly all the varnish. Shotgun style butt plate.

Item # W617-24-274

Gun features D style carving on a pistol grip 3X grade deluxe wood which retains all the high gloss lacquer finish. Complete with a checkered shotgun style butt plate. The forend cap, take down ring, receiver and butt plate are gold guilted and retain about 90% of that guilting with just a slight toning to the color. Hammer and lever retain all the case colors. Bbl and mag tube retain virtually all the blue. A fantastic gun featuring #4 pattern engraving. Presentation was to " George Rutledge by R. M. Dudley January 1, 1912". New Mexico became a state that year and R.M. Dudley was a private detective at the time. Who knows what prompted such an elaborate gift? The gun came out of Sante Fe a number of years ago and is pictured in all the Winchester books. Very interestingly, on page 122 of the Winchester American Legend by R.L. Wilson, there is a layout of the Winchester Highly Finished Arms Catalog that belonged to one of their salesmen. His name, A.C. Albert, is written on the outside of it. Page 10 of that catalog lists this gun by the inscription and all the features. 25-35 cal, 24" bbl, gold guilting, carved stocks and the cost of labor.( Ironic that we found the historical significance of that Highly Finished Arms Catalog.) This gun is one of the best 94's in the country. All original complete with double set triggers. Engraved by John Ulrich as the lower tang is so stamped. Super gun!

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.
