Looks like it was well worth the trip. Can’t make out the box labels, what’s the chambering?

I’m thinking it’s a .30-40.

Definitely worth the trip.  It is a .35 Winchester.   With a mirror bore!

That looks like a nice rifle Manuel.  30000 s/n range is among the early ones for a 35 WCF.

I have always had a fond appreciation of the Model 1895 but never found that many other collectors that were interested in them. When I downsized, I kept one, also in .35 caliber and in the 42k range. Have others found the new book on the model to have stimulated interest. Of all the Winchesters I sold, I believe I had the most difficulty in selling the 95’s, including a couple in .405 that were really nice.

That is a beauty of a rifle.   I’m not that big of a fan of the 95 but this one was nice, the price was right and i’m a sucker for Climbin’ Lyman side sight!!!  They just make a winchester look SEXY!!!!

Good grief but that is a wonderful rifle.  Burt – I’ve never seen you post a picture of this rifle before.  I’m glad you have done so now.  I really enjoyed seeing it.  Condition, rarity, it has it all.  I suppose given I like .33 WCF’s and .32 Specials, it’s not surprising I like M1895’s.  While in confession mode, I’ll admit I even like shotgun butts, half magazines and round barrels.

Steve – thanks for the nice compliment on the 95 – it has been in my safe for 26 years. I had one just like it in .405 and sold it and a good as it gets standard grade in .405 to the same guy in Texas.
