        LOT 23 Exceptional Winchester Model 94 Saddle Ring Carbine - Serial no. 924080, 30 WCF cal., 20 inch bbl., blue finish, walnut stock. This is an exceptional,
virtually unused example of a Winchester Model 94 Saddle Ring carbine that was manufactured c. 1922. The receiver is roll-stamped with the “MODEL 94” designation adopted around serial number 500,000. The carbine has a full blue finish. The stock and forearm are straight grain, oil finished, American walnut. The 20-inch round barrel has a steel block front sight base with blued blade located behind the upper barrel band and a folding leaf rear sight graduated top “20”. A staple-mounted saddle ring is located on the left side of the receiver. The upper receiver tang is factory drilled and tapped. The stock has a carbine style buttplate. The left side of the barrel is roll-stamped with two-line legend: “MANUFACTURED BY THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO./NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A. PATENTED AUGUST 21 1894” just below the lower barrel band. “-NICKEL STEEL BARREL-/ESPECIALLY FOR SMOKELESS POWDER” is roll-stamped in two lines on the left side of the barrel below the rear sight followed by the caliber designation: “-.30 W.C.F.” Oval Winchester “W/P” proof marks are stamped on the top of the barrel and receiver. The upper receiver tang is roll-stamped: “MODEL 94/-WINCHESTER-/ TRADE MARK REG.U.S. PAT. OFF.& FGN.” in three lines. The serial number is roll-stamped across the underside of the front of the receiver. CONDITION: Near new with 99% plus original finish. There is hardened packing grease on protected areas of the receiver sides and hammer. The only wear is some very slight finish loss on the buttplate heel. The markings are perfect. The stock and forearm have 99% plus of the original finish with un-touched raised grain. Mechanically excellent. This is a classic, 1922 production Winchester Model 94 saddle ring carbine that would be extremely difficult to improve upon! Estimate: 6,500 - 9,000
