W1163 RARE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 1895 VARIANT

Item # W1163

W1163  RARE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 1895 VARIANT 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!

W2021 VERY RARE WINCHESTER MODEL 94/95 VARIATION SRC

Item # W2021

W2021 VERY RARE WINCHESTER MODEL 94/95 VARIATION SRC Standard 20 inch carbine configuration with 20 inch barrel, saddle ring and carbine butt. Barrel and mag tube have thinning original blue chambered in 30 WCF caliber with an outstanding bright shiny bore. Crisp action. Receiver is a gray/brown patina with some blue in the protected area around the saddle ring. Carbine ladder rear with ramped front sight from the Model 95. Wood is good looking and has a nice fit with the usual dings and wear present. The barrel on this rare variation is from the Model 95, 30-03/30-06 N.R.A. Musket. They were cut down from the original 24 inch length to eliminate the 30-03/30-06 chamber, and re-chambered to 30 WCF, then roll-marked with correct Model 94 barrel markings, and rethreaded and fitted on Model 94 receivers. The majority of these were 21-3/4 inch versions, and about 30 known 20-inch examples, all have rifling with 1-in-10 inch twist of the 30-03/30-06, instead of the 1-in-12 twist normally used for the 30 WCF. With only about 30 known, this is a very rare collectable Winchester for the hole in your 1894 collection!
