wow, this is a rare find. while you can see pre-64 winchester 94s everyday, its likely youll never see one in this condition again. this gun has had no more than 10 rounds thru it. i ended up with the gun (inherited it from my father in law), and have never fired it. it is is virtually pristine condition. while it does have a very light handling mark here and there, it has nothing major at all, and retains 100% OF THE ORIGNAL BLUEING with no freckling, blueing wear,corner wear,pitting,rust,ect. and before anyone askes or comments, i can tell you up front and with complete confidence , NO it is NOT a reblued gun. the gun was purchased by a friend of my father in law brand new in june 1943 ( as stated on receipt,serial # 1420142)as a present to himself,and fired the gun 10 rounds. 6 to see how it shot, and 4 hunting. the stock is about 99%+ in finish and condition,with a few very light handling marks no digs,dings,dents or cracks.. it has a 20" barrel that is like a mirror,with razor sharp rifling. . it does NOT have the tang or side sight mounting holes/screws, sometimes referred to as a "transitional model" . an extremely fine example of the original pre-64 Winchester 94 lever action rifle, and definitely would be considered a "high collectors grade" rifle, and would also fall into the antique/C&R catagory, so shipping and high priced receiving wont be a problem. this one is so sweet,when it was presented to me, i thought it was only a cople of years old if that until i checked it over and saw the serial. you will not be disappointed. 100% satisfaction guarantee. when you get it, inspect it.if unhappy, return it!
