I went back to re-examine the gun and it was as all had said here. Winchester model 1894 saddle ring carbine in .30 W.C.F 20 in. barrel. Bought it. $350 from a private individual. Better condition than I thought after closer inspection. 35-50% original blueing, receiver a light blue-brown patena. Fold up windage adjustable rear sight, small front blade sight. I am more familiar with modern firearms but i couldn't resist such a piece of history. It is more attractive looking than any of my modern military style rifles. Thanks for all the help! now, any suggestions on ammo? will .30 cal carbine RN ball like for a M1 carbine work? Mike
