Winchester Proof Steel". The right side of the receiver is marked "W.R.A. / Co.". The tang mounted sight is marked "Marble's". The serial number is on the underside of the frame and the Winchester Proof is on the barrel at the receiver.

Barrel Length: 24"

Sights / Optics: The gun is mounted with a globe front sight capable of replacing reticules. Only one reticle, a circle with crosshairs is included. The rear sight is a Marble's tang sight. In addition the original rear sight elevator with leaf is provided and set in the rear dovetail. The tang mount for the Marble has some small dings where the eyepiece contacts the mount when closed. The screw heads in the mount show use and minor disfiguration.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock(s) is/are nicely grained walnut showing some nicks and scratches mostly visible on the left side of the buttstock at the wrist and along the bottom of the buttstock. The checkering is in good condition showing some use and a little smoothing of the forend checkering.

Type of Finish: Engraved gold plated receiver, lever, barrel bands, medallion in stock, and blue barrel and magazine tube.

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The rifling is sharp and deep. The bore is mostly bright but there is some fouling from recent firing. We cleaned it up a bit but more effort is required.. There is no apparent erosion.

Overall Condition: This gun retains about 95% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows some pinprick discoloration on the bottom and both sides of the receiver. The barrel blue is very good with no scratches. There are a few minor surface scratches on the gold surfaces of the receiver, these appear to be from storage and handling. The Screw heads are sharp; the rear receiver screw shows minor use and disfiguration, the tang screws are described above. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about fine - excellent condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this gun..

Box & Accessories: A Marble rear sight and globe front sight are provided. The original box is included with this gun. The box shows tatters throughout and losses on the front face where the "Volcanic" is torn and missing. The box pictures Oliver Winchester in color. The gun does not fit in the box properly with the globe and tang sights.

Our Assessment: This is a beautiful Model 94 in a great caliber. .38-55 is one of the preferred Long Range cowboy calibers, and has seen considerable success in the sport. With the 24 inch barrel, very nicely upgraded sights, nicely grained wood and Gold plated receiver you can not only shoot long range, but do so with style. The gun has been fired so pick it up and keep firing it. You will be the talk of all Cowboy Action shooting events with this gun.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun can be transferred in California, and is C&R eligible.
