One of a kind. Must have been a real special order.

Shoot low boys. They're riding Shetland Ponies.

To all–maybe they are referring to a haunted barrel!

Based on the upper tang marking, that is a pre-WW I production Model 1894, but with a butt stock & butt plate that are post 1936 production.

Yeah, I remember reading somewhere about a joint venture between Winchester and Savage…don’t think it lasted too long though.  Maybe this was the only output.

I don’t know.  I’ve heard of these hex barrels before but never seen one. Confused

You probably never will.  Apparently, there are still people who consider themselves gun savvy, who think there is such a thing as a “hex” barrel.  How many flats on a hex barrel?  How many flats on an OCTAGON barrel?

This seller could steal a page from the playbook from the seller of that 16 inch octagon barreled, “Trapper” we’ve recently discussed.  He could get a factory letter and then throw the letter in a typewriter and type next to notation of octagon barrel – “six sides”.  Maybe he can  do better at lining up the addition than the “Trapper” seller did.  😉

I was just kidding.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had people tell me about their hex barrels.

I e-mailed this fella , just to enlighten him to a few Winchester facts . He did e-mail back saying that’s the way He bought the gun and just took for granted, being short, that it was a carbine, cause rifles are longer , don’cha know.

I’ve had two different scammers using that Gunpost site to try and sell me 38-55 carbines, with photos they pulled off US auction sites (Gunpost is a Canadian site). The last fellow didn’t even know what a saddle ring carbine was but showed me photos of a modern 38-55 rifle that had some after market features added. Can’t recall if it included a rail for mounting tactical stuff on it. I had posted an ad saying I was interested in an original Winchester Model 1894 saddle ring carbine. After the second scammer using photos that I could easily find using Google image, I pulled my ad off.

Yes GunPost warns of scammers lurking on the wanted ads. I’ve contacted Andre several times and these scammers are blocked…until they generate a new email address. Can’t stop them. Just have to be diligent & aware.

It must be a northern barrel. If it were in the south it would be a “Hainted” barrel, because the Haints live in and come out of it.

My grandfather had a customer once that would always call his office, he owned a construction company, she had “Haints” coming out of the floor of her house. Only after hitting the bottle hard did she start seeing the “Haints”. My grandad told her if she laid off that bottle them Haints wouldn’t do that, but she wouldn’t and keep calling the company office weeks on end. Finally one day the company sent the salesman over to her house and screwed a piece of plywood over the floor air condition vents. The “Haints” never bothered anyone every again. It was a miracle!
