serial #120023, 30 WCF, 22" tapered round barrel with half magazine and a bright excellent bore. This is a very handsome rifle which has many special order features. They include a lightweight, shorter than standard barrel, shorter than standard magazine, checkered stocks with pistolgrip, fancy wood, takedown and a checkered hard rubber shotgun buttplate. The forend is the proper 8 3/8" length used on Winchester's short rifles. The lower left tang shows assembly codes "12484 XXX O" with the top tang inlet of stock being marked "12484 T 94". The condition of the rifle is also quite nice with the barrel and magazine retaining about 90 - 95% original blue with loss due generally to even light thinning. The action shows about 93% original blue with loss mostly on high edges and with some light striations appearing across the action. The hammer and lever show strong original color case-hardened finish and the loading gate retains 95% fire blue which has faded slightly. The checkered pistolgrip buttstock and forend are of beautifully figured American black walnut and rate excellent with 80% original oil finish remaining, crisp checkering and hardly any handling marks. The finish loss looks to be from drying and a properly hand applied coat of oil would bring it right back. The wood-to-metal fit is excellent and the stocks have a rich dark appearance. The checkered hard rubber shotgun buttplate rates excellent with no damage. The rifle is sighted with a Beach style combination front mounted in raised ramp, an express style rear sight and a Lyman folding tang mounted peepsight. All screwheads remain clean and undamaged. This is a lovely 1894 rifle in a wonderful configuration and state of original condition. (19558-17) {C&R} [Senator Frederic C. Walcott Collection] (5000/7000)
