LG1107From an estate in Lackwanna County, Pennsylvania, comes this very attractive Winchester Olin carbine, model of 1894, chambered in the venerable .30-30 caliber. Its original owner was no collector, he was a hunter, like many of us on the Southern end of the Appalachians. Post-War Industrialization in his rural area made it possible for him to buy the Winchester in the first place, simply because he wanted a good rifle. From its 1.439,000 range serial number, it was manufactured in 1947 or 1948. As its owner’s hunting continued, by the 1960s he was in the bifocal club, and made the drive to Scranton and had one of the first side mounted scopes ever, installed on his 1894. Mount is a mid to late 1960s alloy Williams with ring mount detachment achieved by thumbscrews in the base, as the photos show. The scope itself is a Weaver Challenger, with the newfangled, at the time, duplex type crosshairs. Sling mounts and even the sling itself appear to be Williams as well, period correct for the 1960s. Rather than a liability, then, to its value, the sling and scope mounting apparatus are more an asset. Surface detractions are moderate, principally palm contact whitening to the lower areas of the receiver and lever simply from carrying in the Pennsylvania Deer Woods of Appalachia. Original bluing is quite strong, and the stock and forend have strength to the still-remaining glossy walnut finish as well. We rate this 1894 as Very Good, 75 percent vicinity. Photos, at any rate, ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. It is certainly excellent mechanically; bore, chamber, and mechanism are all bright, clean, and excellent. From the sides of its hammer and lever, we estimate it has been fired around 400 times. Barrel, of course, is 20 inch carbine, caliber .30-30 Winchester or .30 WCF, as the barrel stamping puts it. Capacity is 7+1 Rounds; and length of pull is 14 inches from the trigger face to the end of the original steel buttplate. Scope clarity and mechanics are excellent as well. Own this Late 1940s Pennsylvania Hillbilly Deer Rifle for only $ 589.00. Definitely C&R Eligible.
