serial #203017, 32 WS, 20" round barrel with full magazine and a near very good bore that shows strong rifling its entire length with some scattered light pitting present. This is a very rare configuration being a 20" part octagon takedown short rifle. The rifle has proper 8 3/8" forend and standard rifle buttstock with steel crescent buttplate. The barrel and magazine retain about 95% original blue with most loss coming in one thin area just behind the front sight. The action retains 90 - 95% original blue with most loss due to thinning on belly where worn metal bears a pleasing smooth gray patina. The hammer and lever retain brilliant original color case-hardened finish. The takedown collar has flaked to a smoky gray brown patina. The plain walnut buttstock and forend rate excellent with about 95% original finish remaining. The rifle is sighted with a standard sporting front, a Winchester Smokeless rear and a Lyman folding tang mounted peepsight. The rifle comes with a Cody research request form which confirms the configuration of the rifle and shows it shipping on January 11, 1904. A handsome little 1894 rifle in a very cool configuration.
