Winchester 1894 Rifle 30 WCF Made 1898 Antique With Tang Sight 30-30

This Winchester 1894 rifle was made in 1898 (SN 124192) and features a 26 barrel with full magazine10-1/2 forend (including cap), walnut stocks with crescent butt plate, and a contemporary Lyman 1A tang sight and a later Lyman front bead (the rear barrel sight dovetail is empty). The hammer is correct with the split top and double bordered bottom checkered panel. It retains about 20% original blue with the balance being nicely blended gray and brown patina while the bore is evenly covered with light pitting that leaves strong enough rifling to impart a spin for sure (Antique Good to Very Good) and the stocks are sound with a small, stable crack at the top front of the butt where it meets the receiver and scattered light to moderate handling marks and scratches with a more pronounced one here and there. The rifle bears with quiet dignity the wear and insults suffered over the past 122 years.
