Hello all

 

I have a question about the Winchester 1895 records letter.

It shows that this 1895 was manufactured with fancy wood and checkering. My question is, would this have been a special order?

Thank you in advance!

Fancy walnut on stock and forend and checking were listed as “Extras for Rifles” in catalogs of the period.  So not considered special order, just an extra that could be added to any rifle.  

I call myself a collector as it sounds better than hoarder

Typical letter for a Model 1895 noting ledger entries – if the gun has H-style checkering, collectors would refer to it as a “deluxe”. Upload some photos as I am sure others would like to see them. Winchester may have listed in their catalog a “special” for the 1895 which was checkered as they did for many models – someone will reply with more one this.

Just to show that Winchester did not manufacture and ship guns in order.  My 35 cal, 38909, was received in the warehouse on 6/24/1903 and was shipped 6/25/1903.

Chuck – that is an interesting tid-bit. Your gun and mine, same configuration and caliber, both checkered, shipped within a 2 week period yet your gun is 3142 serial numbers earlier than mine.

That was my point.  My gun does not letter with sights but is says shot gun butt, rubber butt plate, fancy checkered stock with oil finish.

Sorry, had to take my wife and daughter to the airport for Vegas.

My gun had the serial number applied om 10/10/1902.  It is the consecutive serial number to a similar gun owned by Jr. Stewart. His letters with Lyman sights, a matted barrel and an inscription.   At first Brad thought they were shipped on the same Order #.  But not true and I can’t remember when his gun was shipped?  I want to say it was the same date as mine?

If you’re a guest, you’ll need to use an outside photo hosting site such as photobucket or imgur.  Another method is to e-mail the photos to someone here and they’ll post them for you.  Volunteers for this are typically easy to come by.
