LOL! With the ever-popular rubber butt pad attached to the butchered stock.

Yes - description is sort of correct, this was near mint...

...It was near mint when it was near new, over 75 years ago.

These and the auctions that place familial or sentimental value in dollar terms are always worth laughing at.

Well at least the stock recoil pad is "period".

As in, the rifle looks like it's on the rag with that red splooge on its butt.

The old put a piece of mint candy underneath the gun so you can call it "near mint" trick.




Reminds me of the times I used to have my friends " Pat-and-Ted " engrave their names and some random number on my inventions.

I think the 10 digit serial number speaks for itself. Putting the little 94 carbine in the rarest of serial numbers. The billionths.

Default It's truly valuable

Pretty sure that the one found leaning against a rock in the wilderness for 120 years.

Sure looks like it, anyway.

Looks legit to me! I'd rate it 95%.

He did get the DOM right, but I do think Miss Keller could have done a better job grading that one.
He has a Winchester model 1890 with a description that left me scratching my head. Says it's chambered in .22 Long Rifle, but calls it a "gallery gun" (they were .22 Short), and the barrel is clearly stamped ".22 WRF".
