I had been looking for quite some time to find an 1894 trapper in decent condition and came across this one.  Barrel length is 15 inches and has an excellent bore too.  Most of these I’ve come across have been beat to hell, but this one is pretty nice.  One interesting tidbit is the “H.A.M.” initials stamped underneath the serial number.  I did some research and found an article on page 11-12 in the Winter 1992 WACA magazine about an interesting fellow by the name of Harold McCallum (aka “Winchester Man”)–article attached.  Normally I cringe when I see non-factory stamps (such as driver’s license numbers, etc.), but this doesn’t bother me.  It actually adds a little bit of collector history to the gun.

Great looking little trapper, Don. You keep buying the carbines and leave all the short rifles for me.

Thanks Gary.  I’m normally a rifle guy but I will hop the fence for a nice carbine once in awhile.

Thanks Doug. Would love to see some pics of those two 18-inch carbines. Not very many of those around (only 21 according to Bert’s survey). Too bad one isn’t a 25-35!!Wink😁😁

Don,

That is a really nice trapper and one of the best I’ve seen. 

I have a 14″ trapper in 25-35, in the condition of most trappers you see, but check out the patent date:

Al,

That is most likely a one-of-a-kind Model 1894 Trapper.  The Patent date error on it is the only one that I have ever seen.

On another note… I did score 2!!!! Spruce guns today. One is low condition(sanded stocks very little bluing) The other has a few dings in the stock but about 60% blue on the receiver.

That’s a wonderful trapper Al.  With the 14-inch barrel, 25-35, then add the rare patent date error, you can’t get much better than that!  Like Bert said likely a one-of-a-kind.  Thanks for sharing.

Congrats on the 2 Spruce guns!  Those are also difficult to find in decent condition and are a cool piece of of NW history.  I do have one Spruce gun that I inherited from my dad.  It’s about a 60-70% gun.  I have also managed to put together a collection of LLLL (Loyal Legion Of Loggers and Lumbermen) memorabilia to go with it. I’ll post some photos when I have some free time.
