Description:

The Model 1895 series was designed by John Browning and was the first box magazine Winchester rifle. This carbine was manufactured in 1921. It has a pinned blade front sight, tangent rear sight graduated to "32" on the ladder and "14" on the base, saddle ring mounted on the left side of the receiver, sling swivels and carbine buttplate with trapdoor (bore pull through included). The top of the receiver is stamped with the Winchester oval "W/P" proofmark above the caliber designation "30/ARMY". The left side of the receiver is stamped with the two-line address/patent dates marking ending in the August 6, 1907 patent date, and the upper tang is stamped with the three-line model/trademark information. The serial number and letter "B" are stamped across the lower tang behind the trigger. Mounted on a straight grain American walnut finger groove forearm, hand guard and straight grip stock.

Rating Definition:

Very fine with professionally restored receiver and buttplate. The balance of carbine retains 95% plus of the blue finish showing some minor high spot wear. The very fine wood shows a few minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
