Our Assessment: This is a Model 94 with angled ejection that is chambered for 32 Winchester Special. The .32 Winchester Special is a rimmed cartridge created in October 1901 for use in the Winchester Model 94 lever-action rifle. This rifle has certainly not been shot much. This rifle would make a great field gun which at fewer than 7 pounds would not tire your back or wear down your knees. Please see our photos and good luck!
