1907 mfr. LETTERED WINCHESTER Model 1894 .30-30 WCF Lever Action RIFLE C&R
Octagonal Barrel & Crescent Butt Plate
Here we present a Factory Lettered Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action Rifle in .30-30, made in 1907 in New Haven, Connecticut. The included factory letter confirms the current configuration as well as receipt at the warehouse on February 11, 1907 and shipment on April 9, 1907. 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 overall condition is fine. Original blue finish. Strong, crisp action. Very nice bore. The walnut stock has a superior grain that really shows through on the left side of the stock. The wrist of the stock has a chip at the top left tang and a 3 ½ inch hair crack that has been repaired and is completely immobile on the right. Sharp markings. A very handsome 1894 Winchester rifle!
