I just picked this up today, a Winchester 1895 SRC from 1929. I had never seen one of these before. If this is correct, I understand that these rifles are rather rare, and for 2K I believe it was a steal. There is some obvious blueing loss with a nice patina in some areas. I do not believe that this rifle was ever re-blued, because the edges are still sharp “not polished down” and the markings on the steel are also solid. looking at the bolt there does not seem to be a whole lot of use. The bore is still shinny and clean. Hope you all enjoy this little find.

Thanks to the guys in my earlier post for giving me their thoughts before I pulled the plug.

 

Thanks Peter

Very nice carbine at a great price–congrats and thanks for sharing the photos.  Have you checked the compartment in the buttstock for the pull-thru bore cleaner?  That would be good bonus since they are very hard to find.

Nice s.r.c. and what a bonus to have the cleaning kit, I’ve been looking for one for some time now. I don’t know what the kit is worth but I’d gladly give a couple hundred bucks for one. I think You made a steal, congratulations.

Really the cleaning kits are worth that much? My god I guess I did make out. I know the blue books says this rifle is worth about 3300.00 but I think the market is a bit soft right now for collectables. but that just means you can find better deals.

Peter,

That’s an outstanding 95 saddle ring carbine and a real steal at that price.  Congratulations! Mark

Henry, have you ever looked for the pull through kit for the M1 Garand?  Looks very close????

Very nice, congrats Peter! Don’t stay up all night working that action; I found it quite mesmerizing and never quite figured it out until I got the 95 book by our very own Brad Dunbar and Rob Kassab.

I don’t know about the Blue Book price but it’s a solid value and will only go up in price. In better times I’d say Blue Book is low on this carbine but in this condition it is definitely a score at any reasonable price and the price was certainly reasonable. Cleaning kit is a cool bonus as well!

Congratulations, that’s a jewel.  I have never seen a sack for the pull thru and didn’t know they even existed.  My 30 GOV. 06 Carbine #84161 had this pull-thru with it.  Like so many of my collectibles, this may be incorrect.  Might as well find out now and avoid embarrassment later.  My carbine has no provision for the barrel sight cut in the hand guard and has a #21 Lyman sight and no provision for the saddle ring.  Unlike your beautiful gun, the receiver blue is now brownish patina.  The gun was kept in a saddle scabbard, which came with the carbine.  Thank you for sharing your fine find.

Roger – that sounds like a very cool carbine.  Do you have any photos of it?

001.JPGImage EnlargerThanks for asking.  Not much finish, but a very good bore.  Loves Military “M-2” ammo.  With the weight of the gun, recoil is at a minimum with this ammo.  Winchester 30 GOV. 06 was only loaded to 2,700 FPS until the 1930s and that really cuts down on wear and tear and especially recoil.  RDB

Roger, it is my assumption that the 1895 used the same pull through as the 1903.  The pull through for the WWII guns is the same as the 1903.  The 2 ends of the pull through screw together and then the cord is wrapped around it.  The brush is separate.  I think yours is fine just not wrapped correctly.

Roger – thanks for posting the photos.  Very cool carbine.  I really like the special order feature of Lyman receiver sight with no sight cut-out in the handguard.
