No, it is not a new entry.  By serial number, it is the earliest documented Model 94/95 hybrid and also the first one with a 21.75″ barrel length.  The receiver frame was serialized January 26th, 1928.

Currently, I have (82) of the Model 94/95 hybrids documented in the survey.  Based on information discovered in the file boxes at the McCracken Research Library, it is believed that a total of 1,303 hybrids were assembled, and of that number, just (203) have the 21.75″ barrel length.

I may have a new serial number for the 94/95 hybrid survey.  I inherited this Winchester model 94 saddle ring carbine from my uncle 25+ years ago, and only recently took it out of storage and cleaned it up to look it over.  Serial # 1029327.  I didn’t realize it was a hybrid until I read the highlighted article on the WACA home page.  This one appears to be the 20″ with the dovetail frontfull-size.jpgImage EnlargerSaddle-Ring.jpgImage Enlarger sight, and it has a Lyman peep sight installed instead of the normal rear sight.  I’ll try to upload some pics.

Hello Don,

You do indeed have a previously undocumented Model 94/95 Hybrid Carbine.  It is the Type 1 variation, and it becomes the 83rd verified 94/95 Hybrid Carbine.  The date of manufacture for you gun was August 7th, 1928.  It is currently believed that Winchester assembled a total of 1,303 of the 94/95 Hybrid Carbines, all in the year 1928.

Thanks for posting the information about your gun.
