Manufactured in 1928, when much of the American west was still relatively untamed, this Model 1894 carbine shows all the typical signs of being a western working gun. The Model 1894 itself would remain one of the most popular long guns in America through much of the 20th century. The standard model, trademark, and caliber information is on the left of the barrel, with the Winchester oval proofs on the top of the barrel and receiver at the breech. The upper tang has the three-line trademark information and the serial number is on the bottom of the receiver. It is fitted with pinned blade front and folding ladder rear sights, as well as a saddle ring on the left of the receiver. It is mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a carbine buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 70% of the original blue finish, strongest on the barrel and magazine, with some areas of the receiver having thinned to a smooth brown patina, typical of working guns. The wood is also fine showing the typical scattered minor dings associated with use on the plains, but also evidence of being well cared for. Mechanically excellent.
