The sight has a spring loaded detent that locks it into position when raised. .

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are 2 piece dark checkered walnut with a pistol grip and flat shotgun style checkered black hard rubber buttplate marked with a circled “WINCHESTER / REPEATING / ARMS CO.” logo. The front of the forend has a steel nosecap and the pistol grip has a black hard rubber grip cap marked “WINCHESTER REPEATING / ARMS CO.”. The wood had a varnished finish at one point, which is now very thin and worn off at the toe. The checkering in the grip is worn smooth, with only the outline of the checkered area visible. The stocks show oil staining around the metal parts. There is a chip of wood missing at the top right front corner of the buttstock at the receiver, a hairline crack on both sides of the upper tang and a hairline crack at the top rear of the comb at the front edge of the buttplate. There are multiple dings, drag lines and scrape marks in the wood with a deep bruise on the right side of the forend near the receiver. The wood to metal fit is very good. The LOP measures 13 3/16” from the front of the trigger to the back of the buttplate. The buttplate is broken off below its lower mounting screw, and the remainder shows moderate wear on the smooth edges and moderate wear in the checkering. The buttplate is in about Poor condition. The stocks are in about Fair overall condition.

Bore Condition: The bore is dark with shallow rifling. There is moderate erosion in the bore from the muzzle back several inches. Our bore gauge measures a ME of 4.0.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 25% of its finish. There is surface loss on the edges of the barrel, and on the magazine tube and its hanger, the nosecap, receiver, lever and lower tang. The remainder of the barrel shows thinning. There is a plum colored patina forming over the magazine tube and its hanger, the receiver and lower tang, and the nosecap. There is an area of multiple tiny dings in the lower right shoulder of the barrel, a few tool marks in the barrel on the right side of the rear sight base and several tiny dings scattered over the magazine tube and the remainder of the barrel. There are also several spots of light surface frosting scattered over all surfaces. There receiver shows a several scratches and drag lines in its sides, an area of several tiny dings on its lower left shoulder and two scrapes in its left side above the rear screw. The upper tang is cracked across its top at the back of the hammer, there is a void in the metal on the left side of the hammer and tool marks in the metal on both sides of the hammer. The screw heads are mostly sharp: two of the receiver screws are distressed and the peep sight mounting screws are badly disfigured and may be unserviceable. The markings are clear. Overall, this rifle rates in about Fair condition.

Mechanics: The action works correctly. This rifle was designed with a half-cock notch in the hammer for a safety and a lever safety. The action locks-up solidly. We did not fire this rifle. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 1894 Deluxe Rifle that was made in 1895, the second year of production. It has a 26” octagon barrel, checkered pistol grip buttstock, and a Lyman No. 1 Combination Tang Sight 2nd Variation in addition to its folding 2 leaf rear sight. The rifle is chambered in .30-30 Win., a round that has killed more deer in the United States than any other. The rifle is in about Fair condition with about 25% of its original finish remaining. The bore is dark with shallow rifling and moderate erosion near the muzzle. Very early 1894’s like this one that still have their original finish are hard to fine, and are very collectible. This rifle has a few flaws, but the collectors are still going to be interested, and the Lyman tang sight is just icing on the cake.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This Antique rifle can be transferred/sold in California.
