    As long as I am playing show and tell, here is a model 64 made about 1953/1955 that I lucked into years ago. I think it was unfired and I might have put a box or two through it.

    My 1911 Model 92 takedown .44 has a pistol grip and shotgun butt. It fit's me better than any rifle, except maybe my Shiloh. I can tell this gun has great point ability.

    Back in the 1950`s my dad and I were deer hunting in northern wisconsin. We came across a hunter that had just missed a nice buck with another nice 64 in .32 special. He blamed the gun. Dad bought it from him on the spot for $50! It had a lyman peep and sling. We gave the guy, a local farmer a ride to his house to pick up a shotgun so he could finish out the day. Through the years dad shot some deer with it. Eventually dad got alzheimers. I went home to find that he had traded that 64 for a Remington 760 in 30/06. I thought he got took but said nothing. I inherited the remington. Dad shot his last nice buck with it at about 87 or 88 years old. I had it in the safe for almost ten years before I got around to trying it out. I was pleasantly surprised! Accurate with that peep! Dad had peep sights on all his centerfire rifles.

    The Model 64 is a favorite of mine, they got everything right on em!

    Okay, here's my two antique 1894's. The rifle was a special order from 1898 in .30WCF, the carbine is standard factory also made in 1898. It was a .30WCF also, but the bore has pits large enough to hide a VW Bug! I sent it off to JES Reboring and now it's a very shootable .38-55.

    Here’s my 94 Winchester. Made in 1949, one year younger than me and it is still alive and kicking. Received it for Christmas when I was 14 years old along with a 1917 Enfield.

    Deer was shot past December and at 70-75 yards. He traveled less than 15 yards.

    Frank Hamer and his good friend here carried 1894s when Hamer first joined the Texas Rangers. These famous early pictures taken (1906) after he killed his first guy as a lawman with his Winchester 30-30. Other pictures that look not too long after this have him posing with a 95 rifle, not carbine.

    What is not to like about a Model 94. Arguably the world's first modern rifle. It has a very long and rich history.

    My 1948 .32 Special carbine has the front "flat band" that were on carbines in about a three year period. It doesn't seem to be a feature that adds more value, though.
