It took me a while to realize this thread was started about six years ago.  It remains interesting and the .25-35 remains very desirable in the ’94 carbine – and basically any other piece Winchester chambered it in – Model 1894 rifle, Model 55, Model 64 … oh, and the Winchester Single-Shot Rifle!  

I don’t recall reading it before so it was interesting to me. The 25-35 is a chambering I’ve avoided but it is an interesting cartridge and I’ve seldom seen a 94 I didn’t like, apparently.

I can think of quite a few .25-35’s I’ve passed on over the years – that I wish I hadn’t passed on.  I’ve had a few but as I think of it, it’s been quite a few years since I’ve owned a .25-35.  The same cannot be said for the .25-36.  Once it warms up, my takedown, octagon-barreled .25-36 rifle will be going with me to the range.  Whether it’s a Winchester .25-35 or a Marlin .25-36, they are pleasant to shoot.

For reference purposes, the 25-35 WCF was just a smidge over 10% of the total production from August 1895 through December 1931. That is compares to 12.8% for the 38-55 and 8.75% for the 32-40.

I looked long and hard to find to find a high condition 1894 in 25-35 to fill a hole in my collection.  I finally found one a few months ago.  It’s a plain-Jane, but it’s now the highest condition 1894 I own and it has a perfect bore to boot.  Most of the 25-35’s I’ve seen have rough/mediocre bores.

Don – that is a beauty of a rifle.  Talk about, “dripping” with condition.  

I’ve had the same experience with the bores I’ve examined on .25-35.  They more commonly are in lesser condition than other M1894 bores I’ve looked at.
