    1894 SRS Request

    So I inherited a 1894 many years ago from my Uncle. It is the " Holy Grail" of my service rifle collection. It has a beautiful shinny bore with distinctly sharp rifling. Serial 17615 any help with it`s history would be great My Uncle bought it out of a barrel of Krags and 1903`s at the farmers co-op in Napoleon North Dakota for $15 in the 50`s. She really likes the 220 grain ball she was made for. She gets about 5 cartridges a year when the grand babies are over. WILL HAVE MORE PICTURES SOON.

    Does it have the M1896 upgrades? If it has, it is usually called a M1892/96 by collectors.

    That is why I am here to ask the experts. I believe the sights have been changed to the 1896 design? Not sure though and would love the input from the people who know. will have more pics soon.

    Thank You M1903RIFLE, That is only 5 off of the last number and it totally makes sense that it was bought in North Dakota. Do you think I could assume it was issued in the same batch to the Dakotas? That is very cool info either way. I would love to hear what anyone else has to say about this rifle. To me it`s priceless I grew up drooling over it and was loved enough to inherit it from my uncle when he passed. it is the seed that started my collection. I would like to know the approximate value of an early girl like her. The only stamps left on the stock appears to be a Proof stamp on the wrist.

    She has a even Grey patina with no pitting of any kind. The Bayonet 1896 and Scabbard were acquired later but I believe it is the second version with the swivel limiting pin in it? As a child me and my older brothers all used it at one time or another for Deer and Elk hunting. She never failed to deliver exceptional performance. If you all can`t tell "I LOVE HER".

    I've had my share I guess, one rifle/one carbine/one school gun. Had the bayonets and bags of ammo, couple sets of dies and a trim die. Still got the last set. Although I sold my brass and guns, I'd still be hard pressed to resist one of those if it came towards me at a good price... I too like even the look of that one.
    Regards, Jim

    Would love to find a nice real carbine for a reasonable price for my collection. REAL is the key BUBBA CARBINES are everywhere. Even a BUBBA done right for the right price would be cool. People are asking crazy money for cutup and band-aided creations that THEY WERE TOLD BY GRANDPA was the real deal.

    100% with ya. I've been hunting for a nice Bubba trapdoor carbine for a few months now. Thinking I'll work it into a nice Officer's Carbine style.
    But yes, even badly done chop jobs are still $500 or so. I can find full length rifles (that I wouldn't dare chop, of course) for around $600. It's crazy!
