This lot provides you with a Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action carbine rifle, chambered for .38-55 Win cartridge. The rifle was designed by renowned John Browning, and dates to manufacture year 1908. The Mod. 94 became one of the most popular, and successful hunting rifles of all time, originally chambered to fire the .32-40 Winchester and the .38-55 Winchester. In 1895 Winchester went to a different steel composition for rifle manufacturing that could handle higher pressure rounds. This carbine example utilizes a 20" round barrel, an adjustable rear sight, paired with a blade front sight, and a mellow blue'd finish, contrasted by beautiful walnut fixtures. The rifle is marked with the correct roll-stamping, reading; "MODEL 1894 - WINCHESTER - TRADE MARK" on the upper-tang, Serial Number "426862" on the bottom of the receiver, and "MANUFACTURED BY THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. - NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A. PATENTED AUGUST 21 1894 - .38-55 - WCF" on the upper left of the barrel. Overall, the rifle shows fair aesthetic and mechanical condition, with an even patina forming on the blue finish, and slight wear to the walnut fixtures. The action remains tight. The rifle qualifies as a Curio & Relic Long Gun, and requires FFL Transfer or NICS Background Check. Serial Number: 426862
