I think you are correct on the magazine, it is 7 1/4″ from the end of the barrel to the magazine. for #585417

The 30 wfc on 470371 is at the 12 o’clock position.  I believe the barrel is earlier than the rifle due to that and the lack of proof stamp at the 12 o’clock pos.  Looks to have been that way for a while based on finish wear which looks as it should but who knows.

I will get pics.

857288 is gum wood 

585417 is hard to tell the wood is so dark (looks black from across the room) Im pretty sure its walnut but Ill have to pull the butt plate to confirm.  

It apears that it is a replacement barrel (from an older Model 1894).  All Sporting Rifles were stocked with walnut, whereas the Carbines were stocked with gumwood from the early 1900s through the mid 1920s.

Hi,

I have a Model 1894 chambered in 32-40. The Serial number is 3259. Is this information you are looking for.

Interesting note, this serial matches my Model 56, what are the chances.

Thank you,

Daniel

Is your Model 1894 a Sporting Rifle, or a Saddle Ring Carbine?  If it is a Rifle, does it have an octagon barrel, or a round barrel?  Magazine tube length?  If you can, please send me pictures of it.

Not to knock your gun, but your Model 1894 appears to be reblued.  Just so you are aware of this.

Yes, I am aware the rifle has been re-blued, unfortunate but it’s just part of the story the rifle has to  tell.

I have recently bought a 1894 32-40 OB pistol grip with serial number 359425.  Just wanted it in your survey.  It has a 26 inch barrel with full length magazine.

Plain or fancy pistol grip?  Checkered stocks?   If the stocks are checkered, which pattern (H or I)?  Standard crescent steel butt plate?

Thanks,

Bert

Al,

That is a very nice looking First Model!  I did not have this serial number in the survey, so it is a new entry, and it brings the total to (221) verified First Model serial numbers.

Thanks,

Bert
