 I looked at a Winchester Mdl. 94 today. Not sure if it was a special order SRC or a frankenstein. Did not have an opportunity to take pictures but did get some measuremants.

SN 887497 (1919) Original ring on receiver. Rifle buttstock. Carbine forearm 9 1/8″. Button magazine 10 1/2″. 

 20″ barrel – ladder rear sight. Marble bead front sight 5/8″ pinned with original carbine base and marble ext.base 5/16″

Original blueing and wood finish. Blueing on receiver 90% – barrel 95+%. Absolutely no evidence of refinishing.

Comments welcomed.    RR

Without the benefit of seeing the butt stock and how well (or not) it fits up to the receiver, it is not possible to say much about it. Rifle butt stocks were factory installed on Carbines, but typically on the “eastern” carbines (based on my survey results).

   Bert;

          I did look at the butt stock. Fit was excellent, no gaps – wood was flush with receiver and tangs. Wood was proud around tangs and receiver.

          Metal rifle butt plate is flush with wood, although not proud like the receiver and tangs. If I get my hands on it again I will take some pictures and send them to you.

           Thank you for the response.   RR
