Went to the Oregon Arms Collectors show today and was thrilled to bring this one home with me.  A set trigger on a carbine seems pretty impractical, but super cool in my opinion.  Wonder what the original buyer was thinking when ordering this one?  Not too many of them around for obvious reasons.

No idea what HE was thinking but I’m thinking you found yourself a neat little carbine. Congrats! Good crowd at the show?

That’s a great find. With only about 5000 set triggers shown on the letterable range all together, I imagine the amount of carbines with them is a small number. Hopefully it letters that way. 

It sure looks like a clean, honest gun that someone took care of. Congrats Don.

Thanks Mike.  Had a really good crowd at the show.  It’s the best show of the year in my neck of the woods.  Saw some money changing hands but not a lot.  Plan on going back tomorrow and keep Bert company at his table.

Thanks Gary.  The seller confirmed with Jesi that it letters 100%.  Also had Bert take a look at it and said it’s nearly impossible to “fake” a set trigger on an 1894. I’ll be contacting Cody and ordering a letter this next week.  Definitely well cared for–set trigger functions as it should and has an excellent bore.

Don,

Very nice old carbine.  The set rigger is a cool feature on a carbine.

That’s what fun about this hobby, you never know what you’ll run into.

Good to hear, have fun today. Bert is a good man to share a table with, I learned a lot from him at Cody.

That’s a really nice find. I have always  especially liked a set trigger on a rifle, one on a carbine is that more special.

Thanks Al.  This carbine came walking in the door with another fellow attending the show.  I didn’t even notice the set trigger and almost didn’t ask to take look at it thinking it was just another run of the mill carbine.  Once I noticed the set trigger, I knew I had to have it and made a deal.  There were a couple guys behind me waiting to take a look so had to act fast.  Sure glad I did.

Thanks Matt. Doing some calculations with the Armax survey, of the 353,999 1894’s produced in the letterable range, 75,075 were carbines (or 21.2%).  In that same range, just 5,158 (1.46%) total 1894’s had a set trigger. If my math is correct, applying that 1.46% to the 75,075 carbines produced, it can be estimated that approximately 1,100 carbines were produced with a set trigger in the letterable range.  Bert only knows of 6 carbines with a set trigger outside the letterable range.
