Manufactured in 1907. The top barrel flat ahead of the rear sight is marked with the two line address/1894 patent date. The two-line nickel steel/smokeless powder marking is on the upper left rear flat followed by "30 W.C.F.", and the Winchester oval proof is marked on the top of the barrel and receiver at the breech. The upper tang is marked with the three-line Model 1894, maker, trademark marking. The serial number is on the underside of the receiver. Dovetailed blade front sight and adjustable rear sporting sight. Blue finish with casehardened hammer, buttplate and lever and mounted with a smooth walnut forearm with a steel end cap and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good plus with 40% faded original blue finish remaining, showing edge wear and thinning on the barrel, a few small minor scratches on the magazine tube and mostly a smooth brown and gray patina on the receiver with strong original blue in protected areas. The lever and buttplate have a smooth gray patina. The wood is good with scattered minor dents, dings and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
