I joined this board for the variety of interests here. Posted pics of my military guns, but also have this 1919 vintage Winchester 1894, given to me by a friend, who is the nephew of the original owner of this gun. He was a cowboy all over the western US immediately after WW1, when he was discharged from the Army after returning from the war. It is in perfect shooting condition, in fact, my friend killed 9 mule deer in Montana with it over the years. Have to get in reasonable range for the caliber, but it works!
