Brad, You are welcome. I might also have mentioned that the barrel is round with standard sights. This gun has been in my possession since 1963. I bought it from the Oblate Catholic Mission at Fort Albany, Ontario on the coast of James Bay while I was working for the Hudson’s Bay Company.  I know nothing of the guns provenance prior to that.  I also owned an 1895 carbine in .303 British purchased about the same time but do not know the serial number as it was sold in 1965. I have encountered several of the model 1895’s here in Canada and most have been in .303. The standard military rifle of the Canadian Forces was the Lee-Enfield in .303 for most of the 20th century and it became a popular calibre for moose and bear hunting  in the Canadian north so not surprising if 1895’s  were ordered in that calibre.

Thanks for the additional info.  It’s great that you have had that rifle since 1963 and I’m sure there’s an awful lot of history behind it.  It makes sense there would also be a large number of .303 British chambered 1895s up there, however I have found relatively few in the total survey so far.

Brad, I did some deer hunting with the .35WCF back in the 60’s. I think the guns was not used after because ammo became non existent and thus is in very good condition . I bought the gun along with a few others for $10 each. The .303 carbine I paid $6 from an Indian trapper. It was in rough shape but worked. Guns were cheap back then but I was only making $175 a month. I do occasionally come across .303 chambered ’95’s at gun shows so if I do I will record particulars and post them.

Hello,

I’m not a collector but was searching for info on an 1895 I have and happened upon this forum.

Serial 33xxx   (mfg 1901 if my limited research is correct)

38-72

Octagon barrel, crescent butt plate.

I can share full serial number and pics if I receive a reply and this forum is still currently looking for this survey info.

Brian,

The complete serial number is needed to add it to the research survey. Please include the barrel length as well.

Ok,

I pulled it out and took some pics.  I do a lot of hunting, but my knowledge of firearms in general is pretty much limited to safety, proper care and shooting things that feed my smoker…  Which leads me to the picture with the tape measure.  From barrel end to receiver, it looks like 25″ but the proper measure of barrel length, I’ll leave to you.

 

Now, I can’t seem to figure out how to attach a picture.  I can send pics via email if you would like, but the insert image button here doesn’t let me browse to my desktop.

 

Serial number: 33450

Chambered in: 38-72

Hi Brian

It sounds like if you were to measure the barrel from the muzzle face to the chamber end at the bolt face you would have 26 inches, which is standard for the 38-72.

Thanks for the information on your 1895!

Regards
