Friday Gun Pr0n #331

Today's gun pic comes to us courtesy of Brad_in_MA, and she's a beaut...


I'll let Brad tell us about her:
Semi collectible Winchester 1894 in .30-30 caliber.  The rifle was built before the much maligned 1964 engineering change. Rifle came from New Mexico to MA in the early 1960's & has been here ever since. There is some wear on the finish as it was originally a saddle gun which rode in a holster.  The action is slick and positive, and the walnut furniture is very good to excellent.  Best of all, this rifle is for sale to any of your readers who are MA residents and hold at least a valid FID card.  It comes with a nice leather bag and cleaning kit. Any reasonable offer will be entertained.  Lastly, I am bringing the rifle to Bloggershoot for show and tell.
He did, and let me tell you, the picture doesn't even come close to doing it justice. It's in fantastic shape - just enough wear so that you don't feel bad shooting it, but about as close to original as you're going to find. The wood is almost completely intact (there might be a small scratch here and there), and the finish, while worn in a few spots, is still in great shape.

Thanks for sharing her with us, Brad, and if anyone's interested, she is up for grabs...

That is all.

Whew. Glad I didn't know this was for sale Saturday! I already might possibly have bought 2 guns already in the past week.

minor point... scabbard, not holster.

This classic piece of Americana can still be yours . . . . Jay's got my email address . . . . and best yet, I believe this rifle will not run afoul of the new stupid Malloy rules.

I, too, am grateful that nobody mentioned it was for sale :)

Beautiful iron there Brad!
