I’m trying to decide between two 1894’s, one is a 1906 rifle, the other is a 1927 carbine. Both are 32 Winchester Special. Thoughts?E8F4CB82-6A4E-44EE-B7C2-1E58386D97CC.jpegImage Enlarger8D98FFED-8F18-4033-8C56-3FD3ADE8F632.jpegImage Enlarger

The brl bands on the carbine look like they’ve been buffed; if so, I’d pass unless the price is extremely good.  Also, I think I see the edge of the upper tang; if that’s right & it’s screwed down tight, maybe the stock was sanded.

Tang sight on the rifle adds $150 or more to value.

I’d buy the one with the excellent bore. Otherwise I’d pass.

Well, I pulled the trigger and got the rifle with the tang sight. For a 1906 production, it is in really good condition, I am pleased.
