Manufactured in 1907 with standard two-line address/patent marking, two-line nickel steel marking, and "30 W.C.F." on the special order, 22 inch, rapid taper, lightweight barrel. There are Winchester factory oval proofs on top of the barrel and on the receiver at the breech. Import marked on underside of barrel. The three-line model/trademark marking is on the upper tang and serial number on the bottom of the receiver. The left side of the lower tang is marked "4734 R", with "4734" repeated in the stock inlet. It is fitted with a ramped No. 21 German silver blade front and No. 34 three-leaf express rear sights. It is mounted with a very finely figured, H-style checkered forearm and pistol grip stock with a hard rubber grip cap and checkered shotgun buttplate. Out of the first 353,999 Model 1894s produced that the Cody Firearms Museum has the Winchester records for, only 2,252 had 22 inch barrels (per included copy of page 16 to the excerpt from the ARMAX Cody Firearms Museum journal rarity study). Provenance: The Wayne Connor Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish and 60% of the vibrant original case colors with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina, most noticeably around the takedown collar and on edges. The wood is also very fine with some scattered light handling marks, crisp checkering, and retaining most of the varnish. Mechanically excellent.
