Sent to whse. in 1903 and not shipped until 1904. In the dreaded 32 WS. with a UGH, round bbl. It is a takedown with some nice wood. Smokeless sight and a type 1 hammer. Loading gate is still fully blued. Sling studs do not show on the letter, but they appear to be correct as are the swivels. Not repros. Big Larry

Yum! Nice wood.

I'll forward you my address Larry so I can take that dreaded 32 special off your hands! 8)

Seriously though, very nice find. I would take any TD 94 I find in that condition, regardless of caliber.

Yeah, I read somewhere that the takedowns got a better grade wood. Sometimes I guess, as I have a nice M1892 takedown with plain wood. Yep, this one is a keeper. Got it in a trade. Thanks, Big Larry

That's a beauty Larry, Something about the 32WS smokeless sight and that wood tops it all off...

That stock does not look like walnut? Any opinions? Thanks, Big Larry

To help figure out if it is Walnut or something else, is it possible to get a close up (but sharp) photo of the side of the buttstock?

Big Larry, very nice acquisition of fine condition take down in one of the most under rated calibers. Yes it has been noted in the past that Winchester may have used a wood with just little more grain than in their standard rifles but not figured enough to call it Fancy Wood. Not to high jack your thread but in discussion about wood I though I would share a couple photos of a Model 67 with a nice figured wood which I am sure was not ordered but maybe just something that was on hand at the time.
