Winchester 1894 .30WCF Made 1896 Antique  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Pre-1899 Lever
Description: Now this is a using gun! And we even know who used it! The factory records state: "SN 56xxx, Date In: 2-15-1899, Type: rifle, Caliber: 30, Barrel: round, Trigger: plain, Date Shipped: 8-30-1899, Order Number: 26230". You can see from the pictures that the gun has been around. The bore is probably a 6 on a scale of 10. The gun was acquired, along with a bunch of others, in 2007 from Fred A. Goodwin in Sherman Mills, Maine. He had the gun since 1921, when his dad gave it to him for a birthday present. We don't know for sure where it lived between the turn of the century and 1921, but Fred's dad may have purchased it new.

Fred passed away in November, 2011, at the age of 103. He was a sportsman, hunter, guide, gun collector, dealer and businessman. He also shot a famous world record Whitetail buck in 1949 (-goodwin-of-the-silver-ridge-buck-fame-passes-away-at-103/). This gun had an honest career hunting moose, deer and bear in the north woods. Like Fred, it's a classic, and it's also an antique (receiver manufactured 1898 or before, even though it was not shipped till '99), so no FFL is required. This gun saw a lot of history and is one of the few of which we know that history.

We take VISA or MasterCard for an additional 4% fee. We will also consider trade for U.S. silver and gold coins at spot value, and some guns, mostly Winchesters and single action Colts.
