1923 EASTERN CARBINE WINCHESTER Model 1894 .30-30 Pre-64 Lever Action C&R
Special Order 94 Made for the Eastern Woods without the Saddle Ring!
Here we present a Winchester Lever Action Model 1894 Eastern Carbine, made in 1923 in New Haven, Connecticut. This style of carbines was known as “Eastern Carbines” because of the absence of a saddle ring on the receiver. 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 rifle out there.
The overall condition is fine! Nice original blue. The action is strong all around. The bore is bright throughout with sharp rifling. This example sports a very fine stock with minimal handling wear. A very desirable Eastern Carbine by Winchester for you!
