EXTREMELY RARE ANTIQUE MODEL 1894 WINCHESTER WITH A 32 INCH BARREL IN 32-40
Gun features a 32 inch full octagon barrel and button magazine. A blade front sight and a Marlin sporting rear sight. Nicely figured wood has been lightly sanded and is just slightly undersized at the wrist around the receiver. Rifle style buttplate. Crisp action and a good bore. Barrel retains about 60% blue and the receiver has about 20% traces of blue with the balance turning a plum color. Good corners and nice markings. Winchester only made 46 rifles with 32 inch barrels. Also in the factory letter it also states "Researching further, I found that this serial number 50402 was the first in the Model 1894 guns containing all these particular features together". This is a scarce Winchester in this configuration indeed. Comes complete with a Factory Letter. A good gun to fill a hole in your collection!
