I was hoping someone in the forum could tell me if this Winchester is original? I picked it up at a local auction. Even though I probably have 20 or so model 94s I’m still learning. The receiver has flaked but the rest of the gun is nice. I don’t know why I bought the gun, I picked it up and put to my shoulder and man, it just felt cool and the price was right. Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks Gerald

It looks correct to me, albeit a very special order Model 94 Eastern Carbine. 

Per the serial number, it was manufactured in July 1929.  At that time, the Saddle Ring was still a standard feature, but roughly 50% of the Carbines made in 1929 were made without one. 

The 1/2 mag was an “optional” order, whereas the fluted comb shotgun butt stock and hard rubber butt plate were special order. I suspect that it was also special ordered with the Lyman No. 6 leaf sight in the barrel slot, and the Lyman No. 1A tang sight.  The I-pattern checkered stocks were definitely special order.  It is rare to find a straight grip factory checkered stock Carbine!!  When you add it all up, it is a very uncommon configuration for a late 1920s vintage Model 94 Carbine.

That is a really nice carbine. Definitely a keeper in my opinion!
