Pawn Shop Circuit: A Forgotten Rifle
The rifle in question is a Winchester 1894 produced in 1964. This particular rifle has features of the pre-64 guns, in that it has a forged receiver, solid pins, machined shell lifter and metal buttplate. The wood is also good on this rifle, although somebody at sometime took a liking to polyurethane. The old Winchester also comes with a micrometer rear sight and a hooded front sight. Total price was $152 after taxes.
I haven't seen any Winchester leverguns for sale since I placed this one on lay away. Perhaps hoarding is beginning to take place after the closing of Winchester. Time will tell. I owe Neil a six pack it seems.
