    I have an 1894 Winchester, 32 WS that was manufactured in 1902 according to the Winchester serial number website. It has an octagon barrel and a wish bone rear sight. Works perfectly mechanically and looks great for its age. I actually used it in a buffalo hunt 3 years ago. 1 shot stopped him in his tracks and I made a follow up shot to put him down. It worked perfectly. If you look in the photos you will see an area that was repaired at some point in time. A weld on the top of the tang.........a gunsmith said he could make it look a lot better by removing the extra weld material. It really doesn't bother me but the new owner can decide.
    Cabela's has one almost like this one made in 1904, round barrel and standard rear sight WITH a completely broken stock that is leather wrapped that they are selling for $895.......(and has since SOLD)...most similar models are selling from $1,100 to $1,500.

    I'm selling this one for $595 (NEW PRICE 10/26/17) plus $45 shipping....FFL to FFL
    scroll thru and you will see 9 additional photos

    OK.....if you're looking for a very collectible firearm this is for you. The repair doesn't take away from this rifle. If you're looking for a mint rifle...not for you BUT if you're wanting to own a vintage Winchester, that is still a great looking rifle from years past and you think you'll want to use it like it was made to use, this is the one......I will entertain a REASONABLE offer......
    Own your own piece of American Western History from years gone by......
    Again.....a REASONABLE offer would be considered.
