This fairly early production Winchester Model 1894 was manufactured in 1902 and has a pinned blade front sight, notch and folding ladder rear sight, standard markings, and smooth carbine forearm and buttstock. This model quickly became the most popular lever action in the U.S. and was used by numerous American hunters as well as lawmen like Frank Hamer and the Texas Rangers. The latter frequently used their rifles in the early 20th century in a tragic wave frontier violence.

Rating Definition:

Fine with 40% original blue finish, mostly smooth gray patina on the balance, mild dings and marks, some light oxidation, long scratches on the sides of the frame, and general moderate overall wear clearly indicating this is a carbine that saw real use. The refinished wood is very good and has some flakes and repaired small chips by the receiver tangs and a few light scratches and marks. Mechanically excellent.
