c1904 LETTERED .38-55 WCF WINCHESTER 1894 Lever Action C&R Repeating RIFLE
Original Chambering of the Winchester 1894!
Here we present a C&R Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action Rifle in .38-55 WCF, made in 1904 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. It was first offered in this very cartridge.
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 Model 1894 features a 26-inch round barrel chambered in .38-55 Winchester Center Fire. This medium bore cartridge punches above its weight and is capable of taking medium to large game with milder than expected recoil.
The overall condition is very good. Crisp action. Nice bore with good rifling. The stock is solid, despite a small crack on both the left wrist at the frame and at the nose of the comb. The stock has been refinished in a clear coat.
