A Model 1894 with a close-coupled set trigger (CCST) is uncommon, but not “rare”. While some refer to it as a double-set trigger, it was simply listed as a “set” trigger by Winchester.
The survey conducted by the CFM records office and published in the ARMAX Vol 5 documents that 5,158 set trigger guns were manufactured by the time serial number 353999 was reached. Based on my research survey of the S/Ns > 353999, I estimate that approximately 11,000 in total were manufactured before Winchester discontinued that special order feature. What is “rare”, is an SRC with a CCST.
What is the patent date marked on the barrel of S/N 436206?

Robert Hoyt saidI’ve got 2 different Winchester model 1894’s with double set triggers – one rifle and one saddle ring carbine.I can post some pics, if that helps.
The only way anyone can give you an estimate of value is for you to post some pictures. 4 to 5 pictures of each gun showing all the markings.
Sorry I didnt reply sooner. The time got away from me after I posted the info about my 2 model 1894s with double set triggers.
I just took some photos of the .38-55 carbine, and I will be posting the images, as well as more info in the chat.
I have some photos I took today, showing the triggers, tang peep, and barrel address with patent date (August 21, 1894).
But I am having trouble figuring out how to post photos in a reply. Perhaps I need to post a new message?
