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

Hello,

I came across this thread and see you are still interested in more data. Here are my 95's:

1. SN: 51444 - Letters with Caliber .30, fancy wood, checkered stocks, shotgun butt rubber, oil finish and rimless. 24" barrel in cal. 30 U.S. Model 1903 (30-03). I think the rear sight is a 21A and the elevator has the "Pat. Feb. 5, 1891" stamped on it. Not sure of front sight but appears factory.  Received in warehouse on Jan. 6th, 1906, shipped on Jan. 7th, 1906. Returned for repair on Dec. 4th, 1906 and again on Nov. 25th, 1907. 

2. SN: 80401 - Takedown, 35 WCF, Lyman receiver sight, barrel blank with a circled "R" stamped on it, sling swivels, 24" barrel, crescent steel butt, mfg. 1915.

3. SN: 414214 - Saddle ring carbine, 30-06, 22" barrel, I think it has the 50C carbine sight, original cleaning rod in butt, carbine butt, mfg. 1925.

4. SN: 35486 My beater or shooter. Caliber .30 U.S., 22" tapered barrel, Redfield receiver sight, pinned front sight, butt cut and non-Winchester butt plate added. Mfg.1902

I have the first three listed on Guns International if you want to see pictures and confirm my information. To the best of my limited knowledge, the information is correct. 

Hope this helps,

Thanks
