I have a friend who was looking for some information on his Winchester 1895 Lever action chambered in 405. He gave me a serial number of 00821MV95A which didn’t make sense to me, could be he read it wrong or it is very unique? I asked a gun smith and he said the MV95A could be special markings and/or indicate where it was manufactured. He said it is in excellent condition with maybe some minor pitting on the barrel. I’ll be getting a look at the gun this Friday and can give more info on it then. Until then any ideas on the goofy serial number, Mfg. timeframe, and possibly the value?
