1901 .25-35 WCF Model 1894 WINCHESTER LEVER ACTION RIFLE Octagon Barrel C&R
Iconic Repeating Rifle Made in 1901!
Here we present a C&R Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action Rifle in .25-35 WCF, made in 1901 in New Haven, Connecticut. The credit for the design of such a prolific firearm again lies with John Moses Browning, who lent his extensive design talents to a large number of weapon types throughout his career. The Model 1894 was the first Winchester rifle made for use with the new technology of smokeless powder and was developed as a hunting rifle. Over 7.5 million were produced from 1894 until 2006.
While various cartridges were supported throughout the run of the gun, the .30-30 Winchester became its staple. In practical use, the Model 1894 became a favorite for general shooters and hunters alike. To this day, it remains a deer hunting favorite, and, in all likelihood, more deer have been taken with the 1894 than any other. The .25-35 was, and still is, a fairly short-range, medium range game cartridge. This Model 1894 rifle features a 26-inch octagon barrel chambered in scarce .25-35 Winchester Center Fire.
The overall condition is very good. Original finish. Strong, crisp action. Bright bore. The butt stock is a handsome period replacement. Here is a nice example of a Winchester Rifle in a very hard to find .25-35 WCF!
