1894 Winchester Carbine, 25-35 W.C.F.

SN 1237114

Circa 1940

"W" stamp

My guess is 80 percent condition.

My first 25-35 W.C.F. caliber carbine.

Does it have a Type 7, or a Type 6 upper tang marking?  I have recorded several others in 25-35 WCF in this same serial number range, indicating that Winchester made a batch of them (July 1940).

Bert the carbine has Type 6 upper tang markings.

Type 7 Barrel markings & Early lower tang w/ Strain Screw.

Thanks for the info, I didn't know it was born in July.

I have a 94 carbine that exhibits all the pre-64 characteristics but is a couple hundred numbers past the last known/documented pre 64 carbine. I'll post the number after I dig it out of the safe. Looks like new.

The last "known" pre-1964 Model 94 was serial number 2600011.  If you have one that has a higher serial number, I would really like to see it.

Serial numbers 2600010 and 2600011 were manufactured and shipped as a pair, and they are listed in the Polishing Room serialization records as the last two pre-1964 Model 94s manufactured.  George Madis erroneously published that serial number 2586000 was the last "pre-64" in his books.  However, during the course of my research survey, I have verified nearly (150) pre-64 Model 94 Carbines in the 2586001 - 2600011 serial number range thus far, and (15) in the 2599000 - 2599999 range.

I guess we should add mine to those 299 numbers. 2599040. Looks new. Still has the sight hood even. It's a .30-30.

Erin,

Does it have a Type 2, or a Type 3 upper tang marking (it is in the transition range between the two)?

Does it have a Gumwood stock?

What is the Patent date on the barrel ?

Thanks,
Bert
