Please provide the complete serial number.  Based on the partial serial number you provided, your Model 1894 Carbine was manufactured in the latter part of the year 1915.  I have several other LAPD marked Carbines in my research survey in the same

…obsolete cartridges is a hobby of mine.  I recently took on the old .40-60 WCF using black powder for use in an original Winchester Model 1876 rifle.

I had some resized WW 45-70 brass in my stash that I got from Buffalo Arms years ago.  I recently found some Jamison .40-60 brass…

…my collection. Not sure why, maybe they had to make them fit the reproduction guns.

I don't have reloading dies so I use an original Winchester Model 1880 loading tool. It works great for this. The fired cases didn't need resizing so after cleaning and de-priming I re-primed them.  I used

…elevation is easy to adjust and the front sight is the most likely cause.  I did put a copy of they Lyman adjustment instructions in the book on the Model 69 but am travelling and don't have access to them. 

What range are you trying to sight it in?

…if it changed it to the extreme degree you described.

No instruction manual for any Lyman rcvr sight is needed, except that because the earlier models lacked the "arrows" indicating "up" & "down" which later versions have, users have to figure that out for themselves by trial & error.  (I

…obtained, with help from this forum, the proper vintage Lyman 57E rear peep site for a Model 69 model G6941R Match rifle. When I tried to adjust (sight in) the peep sight, I could adjust the windage where I needed it to be, but not the elevation.

…the newer ones did not have this stamp.  Is that accurate and were there any other changes to that rear sight?  

No, that is not accurate.  The Model 1894/94 Carbine sight was not marked "1873".  There were a few minor changes were made, with the most notable being a change to the sight notch from

On the topic of Winchester 64's in 25-35, any insights into whether this one is original?

The exact same sight that was used on nearly all of the Model 1894 SRCs from day one of production. In later years it was listed as a No. 44A. Many people refer to it as a "Carbine ladder sight".

I don't think they were "contract" guns.  Rather, Model 1917 rifles were either Lend Lease guns provided just prior to the US entering WWII or they were some of the several thousand that were sold as

…or not everyone needs to be educated.  Buy the price guides for the other info, not necessarily the pricing.  Pricing does let you know which model or version is worth more.  Lack of or presence of money does not ever equate to common sense.

Congrats on your first 73. I use to collect the different models and then narrowed up on the 73's. The third model which you have found is when they made the dust cover rail integral to the top of the receiver and changes in the lower tang attachment which started…

…around serial 87,000. They came in rifle, carbine and musket models. The 73 was made in 44, 38 , 32, 22short, 22 long and 22 extra long calibers. Not counting the 22's the 44 caliber accounts for 70%, the 38 is 17%…

…the larger calibers and will pay up to get them so the rule of thumb is the larger caliber is the more its worth. This is true in most Winchester models. The 73 was made with many different options. Barrel lengths from 14" to 36" in octagon, round or half octagon shape with some with extra heavy

…question,

Does anyone know how many Model 1873 rifles were made in .22 Short and .22 Long?

That model is outside my wheelhouse and I don't have any books on the 1873.

Thanks!

P.S. I had a "friend" convince me that a post war Model 70  "Super Grade" carbine in 270 Win. that has "special fancy" wood was worth $10,000.00.  That still hurts!
