Seller's Description:



 This auction is for a Winchester model 1895 lever action 30/03 caliber rifle.  Mechanically this gun functions well, bore is clean and finish is good.
Check out the wonderful original Lyman receiver sight and the rare cartridge chambering!!
This rifle is chambered for the 30/03 Springfield round that preceeded the more well-known 30/06 Springfield.
The .30 U.S. MOD. 1903 = .30-03. Added to the Model 1895 chamberings in 1905. aka .30 GOV'T 1903. Dropped from the Model 1895 chamberings after 1918.
At Winchester's behest, Browning made the design that became the Model 1895. It featured a non-detachable box magazine, which gives the 1895 its characteristic appearance. That magazine could handle higher pressures (c. 46,000 psi, though various sources differ on the exact maximum) than the tubular magazine leverguns. The box magazine also made possible the use of spitzer & semi-spitzer bullets - the points did not rest on the primer of the cartridge ahead.

The Model 1895 was introduced in 1895 (patent granted November 5, 1895) & about 287 were made that first year. Early rifles have a flat-sided receiver &, hence, are called "Flat-Sides," which are very attractive to collectors. The initial offerings were .30-40 and two blackpowder numbers, the .38-72 and the .40-72. With the two latter, Winchester was hedging its bet on smokeless powder. The .303 British was added in 1898 & sold quite well in Canada. After about 7,200 Model 1895's were made, the slightly stronger scalloped receiver, which is the familiar one for the 1895, was introduced. This is the
"Second Model."

  Other cartridges were introduced, as follows: the .35 WCF (1903), which is a grossly underrated & highly effective big game cartridge, the .405 Winchester (1904), which gets the lion's share of the press (pun intended), the .30-03 (1905) & the .30-06 (1908). Much, perhaps most, of the early sporting use of the .30-06 was in Model 1895's.
   Total production of Model 1895's is stated to be 426,754 - as always, give or take a few thousand. About 75% of the non-Russian production was in .30-40. The 1895's came in rifle, carbine, & musket configurations. There was an NRA Musket for competition. A Model 1895 won the Wimbledon Cup in 1896 or 1897.
  The 1895 is top-ejecting & as a result, scope mounting must be to the side & can be awkward.  An extremely popular factory option was the addition of the Lyman Model 21 receiver sight.

The 30/03 Springfield round:
  In 1903 the United States government adopted a new military loading to replace the 30 Army (
30-40 Krag), which had been adopted in 1892. Like the 30-40 Krag, this new (30-Caliber, Model of 1903) cartridge featured a 220 grain round nosed full metal jacket bullet. However, the '03 increased muzzle velocity by about 100 fps, even though the M1903 rifle featured a significantly shorter barrel. The rimless cartridge design, generously borrowed from Mauser, was also an improvement as it featured superior feeding from a box magazine. Nevertheless, as seems to have been typical of that era, the U.S. Army was slow to the task of modernizing.  As the 30-03 was standardized, all other world powers were in the process of adopting spitzer bulleted military loadings. The brand new 30-03 became instantly obsolescent.  A crash program was instituted and in 1906 a modified version of this basic cartridge was adopted as the 30 Caliber, Model of 1906. That loading featured a lighter spitzer bullet and a shorter case neck. The spitzer bullets had a much shorter bearing surface so the existing rifles were modified by turning back the barrels two threads and recutting the chambers.
