SPECIAL ORDER WINCHESTER Model 1894 .30-30 WCF Rifle with CODY LETTER C&R
Scarce Factory Custom Configuration From 1900!
Here we present a Special-Order Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action Rifle in .30-30, made in 1900 in New Haven, Connecticut. The included Cody Firearms Museum Records Office serial number verification confirms the current configuration including the special-order half octagon barrel and half magazine, as well as receipt at the warehouse on 7 December 1900 and shipment on 26 February 1901.
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 very good. The action is as strong as ever. The bore could be cleaned up and is dim with nice rifling. All around a very nice rifle, just what you’d expect from Winchester!
