Hello Arthur,

Very interesting Model 1894!  I had this rifle previously listed in my research survey, but did not have “Nickel Steel” barrel noted.

Thanks for posting the pictures of it,

Bert

An early post-war carbine. Not a flat-band, checkered plate, neither the tang nor receiver are drilled. A late gun and a bit out of my wheelhouse …….. what else do you need off this one?

Mod 94 Carbine 30 WCF 1357629 1946

The barrel date would be nice information to have… I suspect it will be marked “42”.

Probably a no-go on the barrel date……….. too nice to tear apart. Anything interesting about this vintage…….. other than the likelihood of an earlier barrel that sat around during war-time? Where do the flat-bands start showing up?

These guns don’t do much for me so it will probably land on my table at Sioux Falls.

No, nothing really interesting about the early post-WW II Carbines.  The Flat-bands start showing up in the 1373100 range (July 1946).

Bert,

Here is one for your model 1894 survey:

Standard carbine, 25-35 caliber

sn 1241427, with a W below serial number

provision for tang sight

steel serrated butt plate

According to sn lookup it’s 1940.  Can you tell me what month?
