Hey everyone I have a chance to pick up this Winchester 1895 .30 Army. It is a .30 Krag. The year 1927 I believe. I can pick this interesting rifle up for about 2K. Can I get any thoughts on this. Does anything stick out in the photos that would tell the experts here, that something does not seem right or is this a jump on it right away situation. I have never seen one of these before but it seems like a beauty. The bore is very nice and the action is very smooth. Stock is not cracked anywhere.

thanks in advance everyone.

There is nothing that I can see wrong with that Model 95 SRC.. it has its original factory finish, and it is in very good condition.

Thanks Bert, do you feel this is a fair price for this rifle?

I'd say it's a good honest gun and I'd "jump on it" at $2000.00

Guys thanks for the input. I have been researching all morning as well and I think this will be a welcome addition to the family.

If you acquire it, do yourself a favor and get the 1895 book, it’s a great information source.

Interesting carbine with condition and a more than fair price; I’m no expert but in your shoes I’d be $2000 poorer and showing this one off under “What’s New?”.

I'm going to cut against the grain and call it an unfair price - for the seller that is!
