This example was manufactured in 1897. It has a pinned blade front sight and a two leaf flip up rear sight. The barrel has the first style markings and the tang is marked "MODEL 1894/-WINCHESTER-/PAT. AUG. 21. 1894". Mounted on a smooth walnut forearm and straight grip stock with checkered steel buttplate.
Very good as refinished, most of the custom blue finish remains with some scattered light scratches and some very minor freckling. The markings are light but readable. The lever retains 60% of the bright case colors. The forearm is also very good as refinished with only a few minor marks. The replacement buttstock is very good as well with scattered dings and scratches. Mechanically fine.
