Hi team – selling my deceased cousin’s 1894 in 32-40. SN indicates 1903 date of manufacture. It has been reblued & looks amazing, as in 95%+. There is a filled dovetail ~2 inches in front of the forward hand guard on top of the octagonal barrel. Trying to find out why (option when ordered?). Have a potential buyer but they think it may be a repair rather than factory option. Any ideas or answers? Thanks!

It would help if you can provide a few clear pictures of the rifle.

Just to clarify this for you, a reblued Winchester is a 0% condition gun.  The filled dovetail in the location you mention was not a factory option.  I suspect it was added by a past owner and used for a scope mounting block.

Jack,

As a WACA Guest member, you cannot directly upload or copy & paste pictures. What you can do is post a URL to a photo hosting website, or send the picture(s) to me via email and I will post them.
