FIRST YEAR Production WINCHESTER Model 1894 LEVER ACTION .32-40 Cal. RIFLE
Iconic Winchester Made in 1894 in New Haven, Connecticut
Here we present an antique Winchester Model 1894 Lever Action Rifle, a first year production rifle made in 1894 in New Haven, Connecticut. 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, likely more deer have been taken with the 1894 than any other.
The barrel has Lyman beaded blade front and elevation adjustable buckhorn rear sights and is marked with the two-line address followed by “32-40” on the top. The upper tang is marked with the three-line model/patent date information. It has a smooth forearm straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate.
The overall condition is fine. Much of the original blue finish remains. The action is crisp and smooth. The bore is bright, in great shape. A well-preserved first year production Winchester 1894 Lever Action Rifle!
