    Odds are it doesn't have a model. Probably handcrafted by a gunsmith who died a hundred years ago.

    Have the owner look it over and see if there is any numbers/words stamped on it. Let us knw what is on it.

    It is somebody w/ athlete's foot standing next to what is PROBABLY a Winchester 94. There have been a TON of "Commemorative" Win 94s cranked out- by Winchester, and by private companies that add roll engraving, plating, etc. The US Historical Society sells a lot of there- the WW II Garand, the Korean War M1 Carbine, Vietnam AR, etc. Will need close up pics of markings, etc- or hold the gun MUCH closer to the computer..........:p

    Need better pics. At first glance it appears to be a special order deluxe model 94. But in that pic (and it may be camera angle) the receiver doesn't look long enough to be a 94. It looks like a totally revamped and engraved model 92.

    It's hard to tell because of the picture quality, but I'll add a vote that it's one of the many Winchester 94 commemoratives.

    That's pretty groovy :)

    Is this a 30-30 carbine?
    I'm very curious as to where he would have found that here in NZ,
    though I do see some weird and exotic things from time to time.

    check this out :) by a fellow kiwi and all

    it's a .303 machine gun built from an enfield rifle.

    Rock.

    My thoughts exactly. Maybe a 94/22? Is that a cross bolt safety I see at the rear of the receiver?

    Actually,It looks like a limited edition Henry 22 rifle with the engraved brass receiver.

    Well after looking at Henry's site,I'd say like Robo,it's a Winchester with the crossbolt safety.
