And. BTW, all you 1895 Win owners are now members(if you so wish), of "The Ancient Order Of The 1895 Winchester", with all rights and benefits. Which BTW, are damn few! 😊

Oh great! Something else for me to lust after.

I know where there's a NIB Browning repo (no safety) available for about a grand. Need to take a cold shower and find something to take my mind off stuff I don't need.

Except for the Hawkins recoil pad, which was added MANY years ago, this one cost me several hundred dollars BELOW $1000. I thought that was more than fair for a 113 year old 1895.

Only photos. But I'm hermitized and don't get out much!!! πŸ˜‚ And to think almost what??? Almost 600,000 made? I remember seeing the adds from was it Hunter's Lodge? Back in the 60's. "These rifles still have Trotsky's teeth marks on them!"

Some didn't make it to Russia. I believe the shipment was stopped in England in 1917 as the Czar abdicated. So I've heard. Mebbe urban myth.

But lots ended up in Spain in the 30's and also China like late 40's.

Longhunter,

You story of the mis-purchase of your 95 (sold to you as 30/40) reminds me of walking into our local Small town shop one day. Lo and behold there's a std 1895 rifle on the rack. I asked to see it. The shop owner hands it to me and say "it a 30/06!"

On top of receiver it is stamped .30 Govt 1903. So I try to explain the difference to him. And he's still maybe a bit skeptical. Then again he does own the shop so that makes him the authority. And we all know the type of experts that frequent these establishments. 😁 So the next week I drop by and kindly lay this box on their counter and tell the guy "this is the correct cartridge for that 95." He was a bit flabbergasted but thankful. Admitted he had never heard of the ctg!

Btw, I felt their rifle was a bit overpriced. But someone will buy it, Im sure!

kaywoodie,
Can you join the club if you run a "Japchester M1895"?
I have one in 405 WCF that is a hoot to shoot and hunt with.

He let me in with my Miroku / Winchester TD in .405.
In addition to doing a good job on elk, with hand loaded 400 grain Woodies, the sky is the limit!

That's hella cool, just as Woodie's elk is.

I'd LOVE to flame a moose with mine, or an Axis.

I only own 3 Winchesters and they are all lever actions, though I'd like to have a Model 97 again. I killed my first turkey with a M97
