I traded my Henry .357.

This is my new Winchester Model 94 in 30/30. It is a 1968 Winchester Buffalo Bill Chief of Scouts. The wood and finish are perfect. I talked to the expert at the Cody Museum, and it is a 1968 (not rare as they made a bunch of them).

It is currently unfired, but that will not last long. It's a rifle and not a safe queen.

That looks like a really nice gun. Let us know how she shoots.

It is a handsome rifle. And the saddle ring has to be an unique touch.

Thanks guys,
I ran a cloth down the barrel. It came back with some dust.

The action seems to be perfect. I have some 30/30 in 150 g. as well some in 170.

I am living the dream when the government pays for my guns and ammo.

I just wonder who is paying back this trillion dollar debt?

Can't go wrong with an Octagon barrel lever action, be it Winchester, Marlin or Henry.

I'm usually not a fan of the Winchester commemorative, but that one is just plain elegant!

Conrad,
Thanks.

I like a commemorative or special issue only when purchased in the used market at a bargain price.

I was thinking that I own a few "C&SE" guns. [Commemorative and Special Edition]

This is two Texas Ranger S&W Model 19-3:

505319


I have owned a bunch of S&W Model 19-3 revolvers, and this one is good.

Another Winchester which is a 1967 Winchester Canadian Centennial in 30/30 (it is also the 100th Year of Alaska being a State).

I promise the wood and finish of these guns are really good. I got them unfired.

I love my 1976 Winchester 94 in .30-30 in like new condition. I've only shot 1 box of ammo thru it, to sight it in, and try it out. I would like to get another older model, but in the same new condition. Does anyone make a safe for short 40" rifles? Most rifle safes are for 48" rifles, and do not fit shorter rifles good. I prefer light, shorter carbines and rifles......that are light to carry and handle quickly. Bob

Bob,
I have no clue as to the total length. I go by barrel length. This is a rare 26". All of my other lever rifles are 20" (carbines). I have a Winchester Model 74 semi-auto 23" in .22 which was Dad's and dated to 1942 (works great). It's worth about $150 so not in the safe (worth more to me but not to anyone else). Note the ammo feed hole in the stock.

The 26" fits in the safe. I had a matching pair of Browning A5 shotguns (choked bird guns) that didn't fit, but I forgot the barrel length. I would guess ~28"-30"?
