Hello Experts

I have a 1894 with a 16″ barrel and large loop and am curious if this a factory configuration during serial number 2148XXX time period.

Does it look to be original or a parts gun? the inconsistencies in blueing make me curious.

The lever is definitely not factory original, and it is very unlikely that the 16-inch barrel is original.

The finger lever looks like it is drilled and tapped for a set screw to allow for the trigger to be tripped for rapid fire.

I’m guessing here but it looks like the lever from a much later ’94 Wrangler also the barrel but I can’t see the barrel markings to say for certain. Cool lookin’ gun even with it being drilled for a receiver sight

Thank you Mike, I’m new to collecting Winchesters.  I bought a new 1892 in March and just acquired a model 94 (1956 built) to add to my collection.  I have around 10 Henry’s but wanted to add some Winchesters to my collection as well.  Hope to learn a lot from this group.

It looks like someone built this rifle up to shoot it.

My guess is he had a good time in both endeavors. I’m glad someone had the foresight to remove the addition to the finger lever so someone didn’t learn its purpose the hard way.
