WINCHESTER MODEL 1895 SRC
Item # W583
Cal 30 US. Saddle ring carbines are not easy to come by in the 95. This one is a fair example showing quite a bit of use. Still a good solid gun. The metal is mostly a brownish color with some blue in protected areas. Light pin prick pitting in scattered areas. The bore is good. Has some roughness that may clean up. What is really above average on this gun is the wood. The stock is in nice condition and is good fitting. Appears to be original. Forearm and top wood also quite nice. A few dings and scratches but way above average for a 95 carbine. It does have the ladder sight. If you are looking for a carbine, this is a decent one.

Item # 8786-17-322
This gun is in the 73,XXX serial number range. If you consult R.L. Wilson's Winchester Firearm Engraving book, you'll see several different Model 95's in the 73,74,75 thousand serial number range that were made for the Fancy Finished Arms catalog of 1917 that never materialized. This is one of the new patterns, no doubt and done by Stokes-very typical of his engraving with very delicate scrolls and shell motifs. Caliber 30-06 with a VG+ bore, orig sights include correct Lyman side mount 21 series receiver sight and the engraving is done in such a way that it does not impede on the sight. Orig 3X checkered straight stock deluxe burl wood shows some usage but no splits or cracks; light wear to the checkering; complete with orig Silvers pad. Generally VG+ cond throughout; guaranteed all orig. Engraved Model 95 Winchesters are very hard to find.
