ULTRA RARE WINCHESTER EXTRA LIGHT
WEIGHT MODEL 94 CALIBER .30 WCF DELUXE
TAKEDOWN RIFLE WITH
PENCIL BARREL.
MADE IN 1897! WILL LETTER. SERIAL NUMBER
85258. ANTIQUE - NO FFL REQUIRED!

Now here’s a rare one for you. This rifle came from the factory with one of
the rarest special order features offered by Winchester: a 26 inch extreme
taper lightweight “pencil” barrel. It is also a takedown model. The stock and
forend also have deluxe features – capped pistol grip and checkered wrist
and forend. It has a crescent steel buttplate. We have the data sheet from the
Cody Firearms Museum and it will letter as a takedown, extra light. It
originally had a rubber shotgun butt but it went back to the factory in 1905
and perhaps that is when this was changed. Unfortunately the gun has been
refinished. All the metal has been reblued and the left side of the receiver has
been drilled with 2 holes for a scope mount. All in all, it’s not a bad job but
it just never should have been redone. The wood is free of dings and dents.
It might have been sanded just a tiny bit but it’s not at all bad. This is such
a great rifle that you might just send it out to someone like Doug Turnbull
and have him do a number on it. Even with its faults, it’s still a very rare
piece and you’re not going to have to pay $5,000 or 6,000 dollars for it.
