Description:

Manufactured in 1902 this was the first year that the Model 1894 was made in the 32 Winchester Special caliber. Refinished buttplate with pitting under the finish. The included factory letter verifies the takedown rifle configuration, caliber, octagon barrel and plain trigger. The letter states that on August 22, 1902 this rifle was a sample consignment (probably meaning Winchester used the rifle for promotional purposes or exhibition), that it was received in the warehouse on August 25, 1902 and shipped out on August 28, 1902.
