The Winchester Model 1894 was the first commercial repeating rifle built to be used with smokeless powder. The 1894 was originally chambered to fire 2 metallic black powder cartidges, the .32-40 Winchester and .38-55 Winchester. In 1895 Winchester went to a different steel composition for rifle manufacturing that could handle higher pressure rounds and offered the rifle in .25-35 Winchester and .30-30 Winchester. The .30-30 Winchester, or .30WCF (Winchester Centerfire), is the cartridge that has become synonymous with the Model 1894.

Pictured above is my Winchester 1894 lever action carbine chambered for the .30WCF cartridge. She was manufactured in 1977 and is a top eject model. I've taken more whitetail with this carbine in the mountains and fields of Pennsylvania then with all my other hunting rifles combined...with just iron sights.

Nice model 94 SHOOTER!!! Great little deer rifles. Packed by alot of ranchers around here.

Here is a Winch. Mod. 70 Featherweight, bottom., in 7mm-08 cal. 3X9X40 weaver. Tope is a Ruger M77 in .270 cal. Just recently got reloading dies for the Winchester. The 7-08 is an easy shooting round, much like the 7mm Mauser. The old Ruger has been put on the back burner for now. Been shoting hot reloads out of it for years. Don't need all the extra blast and recoil anyway.

A Wincester Model 670 in .30-6 cal. A 3X9X40 mounted on it.

A Wincester Model 1892 rifle in .44 W.C.F (Winchester Center Fire) or .44-40 cal, a pistol caliber cartridge. Octagonal 24" barrel. Made in @ 1905, so it is a smokeless model.

A Wincester Model 190 in .22 cal. Tube feed semi-auto.
