SN 119046. Cal. 30WCF. 18″ bbl. Half magazine. Blue finish. Lyman 3-leaf rear sight. Straight grain American walnut stocks with carbine butt. No saddle ring mounted on receiver. Accompanying this rifle is a copy of a magazine article written by the consignor, Mr. Rick Hill, describing his purchase of this rifle and his research, which confirmed that there are only twelve letterable 18″ Model 1894 Carbines. In the article, which pictures this exact carbine, there is also a copy of a Winchester Museum letter pictured in the article, written to Mr. Hill in 2010 confirming all the features of this extremely rare and desirable Model 1894 Winchester carbine. PROVENANCE: Rick Hill Collection. CONDITION: Fine for this model. Bbl retains 60-70% blue finish with sharp markings. Lyman sight is very good. Bore is bright with sharp rifling. Receiver retains 50-60% orig blue blending into a plumb-brown patina. Screws are unmolested. Tang and cal marks are sharp. Hammer and lever show traces of case color in protected areas. Stocks are about fine and full size, with only a few dents and scratches overall. Forend is the proper short length. “G. Mazepa” is lightly scratched into the stock at the right wrist, probably the name of a former owner. Buttplate and bbl band are a smooth gray-brown patina. This is possibly a once in a lifetime chance to purchase an extremely rare trapper model 94 carbine with an 18″ bbl, button magazine, and no saddle ring. Definitely a special order gun from the best model 94 collection extant. 50940-3 TEP (15,000-17,000) C&R – Lot 2060
