Wonderfully rare for sure.  Even though this is the only one known, there is the fair chance they made more than just one.  If they did, it may be that past owners had no clue as to the rarity.

Yes that’s a real possibility Steve. I think it’s as rare as anyone here seeing a 17” trapper m1894. Nobody has confirmed that one but I didn’t expect them to with only two known of.

Based on my survey of serial numbers 1 – 7999 (First Model survey), S/N 46 is the only SRC with a staple versus a stud for the saddle ring. One thing to keep in mind is that 94% of the first 8,000 Model 1894’s manufactured were Rifles. Per the information provided to me by the CFM for S/N range 1 – 7999, there were 7,457 rifles and just 503 Carbines manufactured.

In regards to S/N 46, it was the first SRC by serial number, but S/N 197 was the first SRC received in the warehouse.

Thanks Bert. Always appreciate the info. First model 1894 src’s are rare enough, let alone one with a staple.
