The classic design and dependability of the Winchester Model 1894 have made it one of the most famous firearms ever produced. The complex but reliable receiver mechanism was designed to permit the cycling of longer cartridges than previous Winchester rifles could permit. When the lever is pulled down, it brings the bottom of the receiver with it, opening up more space and allowing a longer cartridge to feed without making the receiver longer. The Golden Spike Commemorative 94 was built in 1969 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. It features gold accents, a medallion embedded in the stock, and an golden spike engraving on the receiver. This rifle has a ramped front sight with an elevation-adjustable rear sight and includes the original factory box. Its wood is in very good condition and its metal and bore were in excellent condition.
