    Looks well used, but a really neat old gun. Why do you say "might"?

    Because if it really truly is the gun I've always wanted -- I wouldn't need to keep looking. ;)

    I will probably never find that one.;) Nice find.

    My boss has a Winchester 1894 30WCF made in 1906. It was his grandpa's.

    It's un-American to not own a '94. This one has tales to tell, and you need to add your own.

    Well done.

    Can't really tell, but is that a trapper length barrel?

    Un-cock the hammer while it is hanging on pegs on the wall.

    And don't snap the hammer on an empty chamber to in-cock it, or you will sooner or later need to replace a broken firing pin!

    Very nice. Looks well used and well cared for.

    I'm willing to bet the three notches are deer. We're used to them being relatively plentiful. Wasn't always the case.

    That is beautiful. I've contracted acute wantalevergunitis lately, so I may be biased.

    In my experience, it's NEVER THE gun I've always wanted.

    More of A gun I've always wanted.

    Love that the way it is. The patina tells a story.

    I love my 1892 Winchester .38 WCF, it was my great grandfather's bought in 1894.
