    Bottom is a Winchester 1894 made in 1918 IIRC, chambered in .30 WCF 4EEB538E-DCED-453C-A308-AA43DE22BDEF.jpeg

    The rifle on the right is a custom .30-06 pre-64 Model 70 action and custom stock.

    Hold the trigger back and start pumping. Tried that once. Won't try it again.

    My only pre-64 so far is my Winchester Model 50. It's sentimental because it was my Grandpa's, so I don't keep it at my apartment. If I remember, I'll take a picture this weekend.

    That is a VERY cool gun. Have you seen this NRA video (I have this Old Gun) about that shotgun? Good history on a very interesting piece of firearms history.

    A 1947 Win model 1894 in 32 Win SPL.

    Also known as the "flatband" given the flat surface shape of the forward barrel band:

    They have not yet attracted collectors even though production numbers where low. I think that will change in time as it has with other Winchesters. The video will give you the whole history includuding why it’s a historically significant design and who cooperated in the design (that’s the interest part).

    I still can't get the video to load. I know it has a floating chamber, was it Carbine Williams? Maybe John Pedersen?
