Default Gun Restoration

Hello everyone a few months ago I picked up a Winchester 1894 lever action 30-30. The gun was manufactured in 1913 and the previous owner let it sit in a attic for awhile. The gun got a decent amount of rust on it and im looking to get it restored not refinished as i would like to keep the value of the gun. Does anyone know of someplace or someone in N.E Wisconsin that may be able to help me. Thanks Jesse

You have an ORIGINAL 1894, manufactured in 1913?!?! Do you have proof, documentation??

Will you sell it?? Please?? As I also have one 1894 in my safe and I would love to have another.

Wisconsin is the home to a TON of modern barrel makers that are also part time gunsmiths at the top of their game. I mean Wisconsin is home to some of the brightest minds in the gun barrelling business, but they also make their monthly bread by doing work as "gunsmiths".

All you need to do is consult a Bing/Google search in your area.

Please let a professional look it over. Then run any info and/or questions by us before you do anything with it. We'll make sure that whatever you do is the best decision you can make for yourself and that preserves the integrity of the rifle.

I upload pics to my computer and then upload them to Photobucket. I'm a dinosaur, so I'm sure there are better methods.

Canebrake has a link somewhere if I can find it. Here it is:
