I know we all like photos so here’s one(1939) I picked up recently. It was a 1/4 the price of that post-war(1954) that sold recently on GB. ?

Lighting isn’t great. Coat of Birchwood Casey gun stock wax works wonders as well as renaissance wax for the metal. Snowing out today so pics are inside. Not sure why some of the photo’s are slanted and side ways. Posted them straight on.

Very nice.  I picked one up from Cabelas about a year ago in 32 WS also made in 1939.  Gun is is near new condition and only paid $680 for it.  I’m assuming yours has the “W” stamp above the serial number?

That’s a really nice carbine Rick, thanks for sharing the pictures.

Don, I’m going to need to shop at your Cabelas. For $680 you stole it.

Thanks Al. I know I like to see photos of anybody’s new acquisitions, and sometimes I’m jealous, but that’s a good thing!

I’d say the robbery victim was whoever sold it to Cabala’s.  What’s their markup?  50%?

Here’s a few photos of the model 94 I got from Cabela’s for $680.  I bet the victim only got $300 to $400 for it.  Pretty slim pickings at Cabela’s anymore and they’re usually way overpriced, but sometimes you get lucky…Now if it were only chambered in 25-35!!

Don,

That pre-WW II Carbine is as close to being “brand new” as you can get.  It is amazing to find one in that condition in western Oregon!!

Thanks Bert.  I doubt it’s ever been on a hunt.  Lived a pretty boring life for the last 83 years for sure…

Don mine is 1212585. I didn’t take a photo of it or I would’ve posted. Yours is 1214848. They’re 2263 apart. Within a month or two I’d say!

Very nice, Rick! I guess I’m not the only one who has had some good luck trolling through the orphanage, Don. Nice score! 
Thanks for the eye candy, gentlemen!

Don,

That is a beauty. Sometimes you can find a gem at Cabelas, but getting harder and harder to do so.

Thanks Al.  Was already there shopping and found this one by accident.  Marked $700 and talked them down $20.  Shelves are pretty sparse at Cabelas nowadays.

Yes, it’s harder and harder to find a deal like that anywhere. Although we’ve talked about the number of collectors dwindling over the years, even the plastic fans know the value and desirability of a lever gun. I’m still shocked at that 1957 m94 carbine that sold for $4800 but also somewhat pleased.
