WINCHESTER 1894 - LEVER-ACTION - NRA CENTENNIAL MUSKET 1871-1971 - 30-30WIN - SN# NRA16410
NRA CENTENNIAL MUSKET: This is a great collector's piece for both Winchester 94 collectors and NRA members. It has a beautiful chestnut colored wood stock and a forestock that runs almost entirely up the 26" barrel. The receiver has scrollwork that reads "1871 NRA 1971", but the real eye catcher is a medallion in the center of the stock with an engraved eagle that reads: " National Rifle Association of America Centennial 1871-1971." There is minor wear on the forstock in the way of little nicks but otherwise this rifle is in excellent condition. A perfect piece for everyone's collection!
"The Winchester Model 1894 rifle (also known as the Winchester 94 or Win 94) is a lever-action repeating rifle that became one of the most famous and popular hunting rifles. It was designed by John Browning in 1894 and originally chambered to fire two metallic black powder cartridges, the .32-40 Winchester and .38-55 Winchester. It was the first rifle to chamber the smokeless powder round, the .30 WCF (Winchester Center Fire, in time becoming known as the .30-30)..."
"The Model 1894 has been referred to as the "ultimate lever-action design" by firearms historians such as R. L. Wilson and Hal Herring. The Model 1894 is the rifle credited with the name "Winchester" being used to refer to all rifles of this type and was the first commercial sporting rifle to sell over 7,000,000 units."
