    Jim Martin's Winchester .30-30

    Wow. This rifle must have had an interesting life. Jim's 1894 carbine inherited by a relative, grandfather I think, mentioned in my other thread about the 1909 "Willie Boy" posse who favored this gun.

    It looks like it has been through the rough and still standing.

    I have the same one, but it's made in 1912.
    Nothing like a old Winchester!

    The Winchester SRC's were working guns among cowboys, shepherds, guards, and lawmen in their day and most saw little love and care as the tools they were exposed to the elements and not always cleaned in a hurry. Jim's carbine is actually in average or better condition.

    The cal.stamping on the lower left rear of the bbl. says 30 WCF,then just behind that is a small paragraph that says "nickel steel barrel especially for smokeless powder" which makes it a pretty early issue 94.
