Default info for Winchester model 95 Springfield 1903

I have been asked to put up some pictures, I will when I get home tomorrow.
I picked up 2 rifles the other day on a whim one was a Winchester model 95 I did not know anything about them so This is what I have found out about this one.
It is the Carbine model the caliber is .30 Army or .30/40 krag. the barrel is Nickel smokeless 21" long has the saddle ring and the lymens adjustable sight, the barrel is not rusted the rifling is crisp and clear, very little rust on the outside. the cleaning kit is missing from the stock, it does not have the checkered stock. The wood has some dings and I think 1 small crack. Once I get it tore down I will take more pictures, I am not really a collector of these guns. The gun has been sitting on the wall for a long time. Any help would be appreciated.
If I have missed anything let me know
Thank you.
The second one is a Springfield model 1903, It is from 1919, looks to be all original, no bayonet the stock is good for its age there is 1 small crack behind the trigger, the barrel is bright a shiny the rifling is crisp no rust or pitting, all the other metal is good with minimal rust and the bluing is still far for its age. I will take more pictures once it is torn down, any help would be appreciated. If I missed something please let me know.

Don't "tore down" the 95. Unless you like puzzles, and maybe can do a Rubik's cube in one minute flat.

Ken, I don't even think that would help.
norcal73, post some pics of the '95, especially and markings on the hardware and stock. The majority of the SRC models were purchased by military and NG units. I'll see if there's any info on who may have originally purchased that one.

I think I have a video on disassembly of a 1895. Not a carbine but still.
