*FINE WINCHESTER MODEL 1894 LEVER ACTION RIFLE. SN 376205. Cal. 38-55. Standard grade rifle with 26″ rnd bbl, full magazine, half nickel front sight with screw & semi-buckhorn rear sight. Mounted with uncheckered, straight grain American walnut with straight stock and crescent buttplate. These earlier ’94 rifles were considered working man’s tools and at the time this rifle was produced the majority of America’s business was still conducted from the back of a horse or a wagon, which, of necessity exposed these rifles to all manner of natural elements which deteriorated the finish rather rapidly. Finding a standard grade model ’94 rifle of this era with high orig finish is somewhat a rarity. PROVENANCE: Woody Frey Collection. CONDITION: Extremely fine plus, all orig. Bbl, magazine tube, forend cap and receiver retain virtually all of their crisp factory blue with 1 small thin spot on the forend cap and minor sharp edge wear on the receiver, with some fine candy striping on the left side with some scattered pin-prick spots of surface etching. Lever & hammer retain brilliant case colors, lightly faded on the very outer faces of lever. Buttplate retains bright case colors on the tang, faded on the face. Wood is sound with a small bruise on the buttstock and a very few, very scattered, very minor nicks in the finish and overall retains most of its brilliant, orig factory varnish. Mechanics are crisp, brilliant shiny bore. Appears to be new and unfired. 4-48439 JR210 (4,000-7,000)
