winchester 1894

Post by hurricanecharlie » Thu Aug 14, 2014 10:14 pm

i am handling an estate and there is an 1894 winchester that i have been tasked by the heis to find it a new home
it was made in 1917 botre is rough but the gun shoots reasonably well
the sights i am not used to shoot mostly garands and guns that have square nothc sight like mosin enfield and such
trying to determine value
there was something i saw about a screw over the loading port but no screw but there are hole there,rather small
don't know if this is a rare collectable or just a garden variety hunting and/or hang over the fireplace gun
who knows about these on fsn? ](*,)

You should have some info at hand.
Barrel length.
Caliber.
Sights? There were several variations available from the factory.
Questions that will affect price are what is the stock? Checkered, pistol grip, shotgun or crescent butt, barrel band or fore end cap?
If it has an octagon barrel, or saddle ring, pistol grip, checkering, fancy sights, etc. It may be worth more. And more if it's a 'take-down' model.
All these will influence a buyer and should influence the seller, also.


This might be worth checking out, but seems short on detail, as is any information on the older 1894s.

Another place to look is on the (lever action board) Gunboards forum, but you'll have go through the threads.

since no one answered your question and this turned into a where's Pan thread =:wvr

.

not the easiest way to tell, but on early model, looks like this, the hole is where you push the pin for the top of the lever/bolt on disassembly and the nub above the loading gate is the tail of a screw thats on the inside holding the cartridge guide, there might be real early models where the tail of the screw didn't protrude past the receiver but I've not seen one , that would mean the cartridge guide were cast in place ( not likely on really old guns ) ?? might be clogged up with crud ?? :-k

.
on most newer models the cartridge guides screw in from the outside , thus you see the slot head of the screw, all have the hole

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Rent, 1000 pardons. I thought the question was moot as Sweep indicated that he had purchased the Winchester.... #-o

no worries, I just don't see how or why you guys care about patronizing someone who doesn't support or participate on FSN, but that just me :ber

She used to participate in FSN quite a bit and her father was a real stand up gentleman. Pam was always super nice when I did transfers and/or orders through the shop.

ok back from the chimney sweeps gathering in SC, yes shes still doing transfers for folks and is doing it out of the front of our shop no there is.. no see mee feel me show room with stock in it. Yes she still read the boards and will comment on things if she is inclined. I might recommend you try Iron Site Gun shop right across the row from our mfg shop . Cole and Bob are good guys and have a good repair shop right next door to the gun shop. Also Bob has done some realy nice rebluing on a few of my older guns and dose a nice job of it. tell him sweep said Hi if you go by.
