Manufactured in 1917. This World War I era Winchester Model 1895 saddle ring carbine is in excellent condition, having the appearance of just coming off the production line. Its exceptional condition makes it a standout piece of Winchester heritage. Designed by prolific firearms inventor John Browning, the Model 1895 was the first box magazine lever action rifle Winchester manufactured. It was designed to chamber the new high powered smokeless ammunition that ushered in a new era of big game hunting. The carbine is fitted with a pinned blade front sight, folding ladder rear sight with stair step base, and saddle ring on the left side of the receiver. The receiver has the caliber designation ".30/ARMY" above a Winchester factory oval proof on the chamber and the two-line Winchester legend on the left side. The upper tang has the three-line model/trade mark information. It is mounted with a smooth forearm with finger groove and an upper handguard, as well as a smooth straight grip stock with a trapdoor carbine buttplate containing a bore brush.
Excellent plus, near new retaining 99% plus original blue finish with slight cycling type wear. The wood is also excellent plus, near mint with the slightest of handling evidence. Mechanically excellent. A superb example of a Winchester Model 1895 saddle ring carbine in standard configuration that will be nearly impossibly to improve upon.
