I just picked one up and it is very nice, but things aren't adding up in regards to the configuration of the rifle. I have quite a few questions about sights, bbl lengths, magazine lengths and finishes. I collect older Winchesters (1873s, 1876s, 1895s) but this is my first 1894 and according to Madis it was manufactured in 1898, but the polishing room records at Winchester say 1901. It is chambered in .25-35 WCF. I am in the process of getting a factory letter from the Cody Museum, but between now and then I just thought I would ask you guys... 1. Is 21" a barrel lenth Winchester used? The barrel does not look to be cut down. At least none of the tell-tale signs are there. 2. Is 14" a magazine lenth Winchester used? Would this be considered a 2/3 magazine? 3. Did Winchester ever ship firearms with Marbles peep rear and Marbles Sheard front sights along with a flip up adjustable rear sight? I have found no other pictures online of other rifles set up with this same configuration which worries me. Could it be a special order rifle? I forgot to add that the wood to metal fit is quite literally perfect! Thanks ahead of time for any help anyone can provide!
