Manufactured in 1914. Standard markings and features as well as factory oval proofs on the barrel and receiver at the breech. The barrel also bears the crossed pennant and "D.C.P." Dominion of Canada proof. This is one of the reported 7,000 Winchester Model 1894 carbines ordered by the British to arm second line Royal Navy crews. This example is numbered very close to the typical serial range of 730,000-750,000. One of these carbines is known to have been present in the sinking of the German U-boat UB-4 by H.M.A.S. Inverlyon on 15 August 1915. Provenance: The Brandhorst Collection
Fine, retains 40% blue with the balance a mixture of brown and grey patinas, and some scattered patches of mild pitting with cold blue touch up visible in these areas. The wood is very good with numerous minor dings and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent.
