Yes, I am still surveying the Model 1894/94s in the 354000 – 2600011 serial range.

How long is the barrel?  Is the magazine tube end cap flat or rounded?  Can you send me pictures of the rifle?

Unfortunately No, it does not sound right. What it indicates is that you have a cut down Sporting Rifle that originally had a 26-inch barrel and a Full length magazine tube.  Please send the pictures when you can.

Don,

Which caliber is it?

The D.W. King front sight is unlikely to be factory original, but it looks good on the rifle.  The slings eyes appear to be correct but cannot be positively identified as factory original.  The rest of the rifle looks good.

Bert, I had 30 W.C.F. on photo but didn’t get it included. Also it has a hard to discern 91 behind the trigger (didn’t show in photo), checkered hammer , 26″ barrel. I think the rear sight is a “rocky mountain sporting sight”. What front sight should it have? I know it is 1932 from WACA site and will get letter if available. Thanks, Don

Don,

Model 1894 s/n 876775 is not a 1931 production gun.  Instead, it was manufactured in the month of May 1918.  The CFM records office only has the Polishing Room records information for all serial numbers in the 354000 – 1352066 range.

The number stamped behind the trigger is an inspector’s stamp.  All Model 1894s manufactured in that time period have a 2-digit inspector’s stamp in that same general location.  The rear sight is a 26-series Sporting sight. The standard front sight was a No. 21, but different sights could have been ordered.

Bert, just to clarify, after investigating with flashlight and magnifying glass and comparing Stroebels book page 287 I believe the rear sight to be “rocky mountain sporting sight” 22E. It has small screw on right side and serrated edges on sides. Special order sights and sling studs? Who knows. Thanks. Don
