    Neat find... but I got to ask, why did you want that gun?
    I wanted a lever-action in my collection, and that one had always interested me. I like the looks of them, and it came in a caliber I already have. And I like quirky mechanical things, and the 1895 is definitely one of those.

    I wanted the carbine because it's more "my size," but I also wanted 7.62x54R, and that combo wasn't factory made. So I find it humorous that I end up with all the looong versions, just like my Win. 1897, which is about as long as I am tall.

    If it's good enough for Teddy Roosevelt, it's good enough for me.

    Now my Mosin M44 has a shooting buddy.

    Thanks for the link, OD.

    I am really really jealous

    I believe the wrting on the stock can be a conversion from the old imperial Russian measurement to metric which Sweden used. The Russian did not convert to metric until after the Soviet revolution.

    I could be wrong, but I believe I remember reading that the Russian czar sold arms to the Swedish King to pay off debts occured during the Russo-Japanese war.

    Betty,

    Grandfathers will be Grandfathers. I was handed down the 95 in 30-40 Krag. Serial # 109138. It is said in the family that G’Pa carried this when with Teddy Roosevelt in Cuba. Don’t know the truth tho.

    Enjoy,

    Chris

    Betty , I would get it appraised.

    It's rough and missing some parts but probably worth more to a collecter in that Caliber

    Ooooh, that's a nice one. Looks minty. I read the description that came with it, too - very interesting! And now I can see all the angles and get a good look at the missing stripper clip guide. I wonder if it'll feed the clips from my M44.

    Mine's definitely not minty and looks like it's had a lot of hard use. If only guns could speak and tell their stories (or maybe it's best not to know)...

    according to wikianswer and the list of serial numbers that they have listed according what winchester posted about serial numbers produced each year i have a model 94 made in 1912 and a model 94 made in 1947. not bad huh!...lol. need to get the old one to the gunsmith to see what he can do to make sure it is 100% functional!

    Not bad at all sir, congratulations!

    For what it's worth, to collectors your 1912 is actually a Model 1894 (this should be rollmarked on the upper tang, behind the hammer), in 1924 Winchester believed "1894" dated their rifles so they removed the "18" from the roller dies and they officially became known as the Model 94. Your 1947 would be a pre-64.

    I must say that the old Winchester '95 in 7.62X54R really floats my boat. I love the old Winchester lever action models and teh '95 is one of my favorites. Have a '95 in .405.
