I purchased a model 94 WCF recently (ser# 1,411,208) just because I always wanted one. Yes, grew up in the 1950’s. That got me more interested in Winchesters. Just found and bought a Model 1890, ser# 395188 from 1909 according to the chart I found on line, octagon barrel and takedown. The wood is in beautiful condition and metal is very good. My question is, is this a first, second or third model gun? Thank you.

Model 1890 S/N 395188 was manufactured in mid December 1908, and it is a Third model.  Most of the online DOM charts are not accurate.

Which type of hammer does your Model 94 Flat-band Carbine have (e.g. knurled or serrated)?

Randy, first model 1890’s are not takedowns.  First and second model receivers look the same from the side except for the takedown screw.  Third model receivers show a cutout where the bolt extends downward into the side of the receivers.

The first one is a first model solid frame, the second one is a second model takedown and the last one is a third model takedown.l
