Description:

Winchester Model 1895 carbine manufactured in 1920. The carbine features the military style forearm with grasping grooves, military type handguard and folding leaf rear sight. A staple-mounted saddle ring is located on the left side of the receiver. The carbine style buttplate has a sliding steel trapdoor and the butt-trap contains the military style bore brush and thong. The barrel, barrel band, receiver, bolt, magazine, lever and buttplate have the Winchester commercial blue finish. The hand guard, stock and forearm are straight grain American walnut with a military style oil finish. The top of the receiver is stamped with the Winchester oval "W/P" proof mark above the caliber designation "30/ARMY". The left side of the receiver is roll-stamped: "MANUFACTURED BY THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN. CONN." in a single line above the 1895-1907 patent dates. The upper tang is roll-stamped: "MODEL 1895/-WINCHESTER-/TRADE MARK REG. U.S. PAT. OFF & FGN." in three lines. The serial number, "4003675" and "B" are stamped across the lower tang behind the trigger. The John M. Browning designed Model 1895 Winchester rifles and carbines featured the unique, non-detachable box magazine and were capable of handling high power smokeless powder cartridges.

Rating Definition:

Excellent plus to near new. This carbine is all original and retains nearly 98% of the blue finish. Wear is limited to a few very minor areas of flaking on the bottom of the magazine, right side of the receiver, bottom of the barrel band and buttplate heel and toe. The walnut stock and forearm are both in outstanding condition with slight storage marks. Mechanically excellent.
