    I had an interesting 1894 Winchester come into the shop yesterday. It is US marked with a flameing bomb proof on the chamber. Here is a write up on them.

    I was not aware that our military bought these guns. Thats what is fun about this hobby. You get to learn something every day....:thumbup:
