1907 mfr. WINCHESTER Model 1894 .30-30 WCF Lever Action RIFLE C&R
With Shortened 20” Octagonal Barrel
Here we present a C&R Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action Rifle, made in 1907 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.
This one has had its barrel and magazine tube shortened to 20 inches long ago, which is carbine length. A Lyman front sight was then installed in a dovetail. The receiver tang was once equipped with a rear peep sight and a hole was drilled and tapped in the place of the “E” of Winchester.
The overall condition is very good. Original finish/patina. The action is excellent. The bore shows much use and remains in good condition. The lands are a bit worn but certainly serviceable. The walnut stock is in good condition and solid. A nice example of the eminently useful Model 1894 Winchester in .30-30 with a carbine length octagonal barrel and crescent rifle butt plate!
