Takedown Winchesters are the creme de la creme of the Pre WWI rifles. This one is nice and tight and works just fine. Very good metal with just a few age dings and 95%,or more original factory blue on Barrel, 90% on magazine and 60% on receiver. A fine example with sharp corners, and even a bit of case color on the hammer and lever. The wood has most of its original finish and has two ancient scratches on the stock. No cracks, no chips; and fit to metal is very good. Rear sight is an adjustable buckhorn with the 32-B elevator. There is some pitting in the throat of the bore for a few inches, but the rest of the bore is very good. It shoots accurately and is clean. Made in 1902, 110 years old and still great.
Takedown 1894's were introduced in 1895 and discontinued in 1930. If you ever wondered why they made Takedown rifles and why there are so few of them, I'll be glad to explain my opinion of that. They truly are marvelous and a pleasure to own. Easy to clean, too. A gun to admire and appreciate and use.
