Winchester 1895

The Model 1895 Winchester breaks from the design of other Winchester lever action repeaters by having a box-style magazine rather than a magazine tube.

W1136A WINCHESTER 1895 SRC

Item # W1136A-24-256

W1136A WINCHESTER 1895 SRC This carbine is in cal 30 US. Standard carbine configuration with the exception of the top wood is missing. Receiver has had some pitting that has been cleaned. There are pitting scars throughout. Color is grey. The bbl also has some pitting and dings. A unique feature is that it has a brass muzzle cap. I believe this would be from a Krag rifle. Wood has been sanded and is shy at the upper tang. There has been a few coats of linseed oil put on a long time ago and the color looks good and is wood is solid. Forearm has had oil or something put on it. It is not over sanded. Side grooves are still very prominent. The action is nice and solid but a little sluggish. Hammer and trigger work well. Would make a good "Vintage" hunting rifle.

8786 WINCHESTER MODEL 1895 TAKE DOWN DELUXE ENGRAVED SPORTING RIFLE

Item # 8786-24-258

8786 WINCHESTER MODEL 1895 TAKE DOWN DELUXE ENGRAVED SPORTING RIFLE This gun is in the 73,XXX serial number range. If you consult R.L. Wilson's Winchester Firearm Engraving book, you'll see several different Model 95's in the 73,74,75 thousand serial number range that were made for the Fancy Finished Arms catalog of 1917 that never materialized. This is one of the new patterns, no doubt and done by Stokes-very typical of his engraving with very delicate scrolls and shell motifs. Caliber 30-06 with a VG+ bore, orig sights include correct Lyman side mount 21 series receiver sight and the engraving is done in such a way that it does not impede on the sight. Orig 3X checkered straight stock deluxe burl wood shows some usage but no splits or cracks; light wear to the checkering; complete with orig Silvers pad. Generally VG+ cond throughout; guaranteed all orig. Engraved Model 95 Winchesters are very hard to find.

Antique  $ 24,500.
