Hi Bert,

Not sure if this rifle crate is legit, but there’s a few serial numbers on the tag that you might be interested in for your survey.

Don,

It is legit, and I had already seen it several years ago.

Bert, another 1894 carbine, SN 1175394. It has 20″ barrel, full magazine, 30 WCF on left side of barrel, model 94 on left side of barrel,made in USA Winchester repeating arms co.on right side of barrel,no saddle ring. I am not good at wood id but stock really doesn’t remind me of walnut. This stock is shotgun butt with steel butt plate. WINCHESTER, trade mark, made in USA on upper tang. Made 1939 according to owner.

Please thank the owner for me, and let him know that it was actually manufactured in May, 1938.  

The stock is actually walnut, and based on your description, it is a standard pre-WW II Carbine.

Thanks,

Bert
