WINCHESTER 1894 OCTAGON RIFLE 38/55 NICE SPECIAL SIGHTS
Item ID #1767
This Winchester Model 1894 has the features collectors want. It has an octagon barrel and the caliber is 38/55. Condition is excellent. Note the sights. There is a tang sight as well as a sight with wind adjustment up front. Wood to metal fit is perfect. It is nice condition. Original case color remains. A high percentage of the original blue remains on the barrel, magazine tube, and receiver. Action is perfect and smooth. Bore in the 26" barrel is bright and shiny. It will rate an eight on a one to ten scale. Year of manufacture is 1901. I do have a copy of the Cody letter which verifies the caliber as 38/55. Sights are not mentioned. Serial number was applied in 1898, so this one does qualify as an antique.
