Antique WINCHESTER Model 1894 TAKEDOWN .30-30 WCF Lever Action SHORT Rifle
1898 Manufacture Hunting Rifle
Here we present an antique Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action Takedown Short Rifle, made in 1898 in New Haven, Connecticut and chambered in .30 Winchester Center Fire. This one features the scarcer takedown receiver and magazine tube. The barrel is round and has been shortened to 22 inches. It has a shotgun butt stock with checkering at the wrist and the forearm. The left side of the receiver is drilled and tapped for a receiver mounted scope.
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 good. Strong action. Bright, sharply rifled bore. The stock is in very good shape and stable throughout. Here is a nice little takedown rifle for the collection.
