Winchester Model 1894 .32-40 rifle
Next on the auction block: an early production Winchester Model 1894 rifle. Chambered for the .32-40 cartridge, it wears a 20-1/2″ octagonal barrel with iron sights. NOTE: Auction ends May 15, 2011. This rifle was most likely shipped with a 26″ barrel that has been shortened in the past. The metal has been reblued and the gun retains about 93-94% finish. The stocks are in very good shape and have not been sanded or refinished. There are no cracks or chips. There are sling swivels added to the underside of the butt and to the forend cap. The rifle appears to function perfectly and the action is as crisp today as it was 114 years ago when it was made. The bore looks very good with strong, sharp rifling and plenty of shine.
Now up for auction: one of the most popular of Civil War pistols, the Colt 44 Model 1860 Army Revolver. NOTE: Auction ends May 15, 2011. This antique pistol is a muzzle-loaded cap & ball .44-caliber revolver used during the American Civil War. It was used as a side arm by cavalry, infantry, and artillery troops. The Colt 1860 Army uses the same size frame as the .36 caliber 1851 Navy revolver. The frame is relieved to allow the use of a rebated cylinder that enables the Army to be chambered in .44 caliber. Also, the barrel on the 1860 Army has a forcing cone that is visibly shorter than that of the 1851 Navy, allowing the Army revolver to have a longer cylinder.
