    Make:
    Miroku, in Japan, for Winchester

    In my opinion very few in the world today can make guns like the Japanese at the domestic affordable end of the market, god bless them, these guns are better made than U.S manufacturers could ever produce.

    Model: 1895 Limited Edition High Grade

    Serial Number: NFH2070

    Year of Manufacture: 1995-1999

    Caliber: .30-06 Springfield

    Action Type: Lever Action, Internal Magazine Fed Rifle

    Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked “ESPECIALLY FOR SMOKELESS POWDER / SPECIAL STEEL BARREL / NP”, the top is marked “30-06 CAL.”, the right is marked “WINCHESTER / U.S. REPEATING ARMS CO., NEW HAVEN, CT. U.S.A. / MADE IN JAPAN”. The right side of the receiver is marked with the serial number. The upper tang is marked “WINCHESTER / MODEL 1895”. The flanks of the receiver, fixed magazine and lever assembly have beautiful Number 3 scroll engraving and gold inlaid borders; double gold inlaid game scenes are found on the flanks of the receiver. Please see our pictures of this stunning rifle!

    Barrel Length: 24”

    Sights / Optics: The front sight is a brass beaded blade that is pinned into a base that is fixed to the barrel. The rear sight is a square notched buckhorn leaf on a slide-step elevator, dovetailed onto the barrel.

    Type of Finish: Blued barrel, bolt block, butt plate & hammer, silver nitride receiver, fixed magazine & lever with gold inlay and gold plated trigger..

    This is a Winchester Model 1895 Limited Edition High Grade rifle with Number 3 engraving, gold inlay, beautifully polished blued components and spectacular deluxe checkered walnut stocks. There are only a few light marks to speak of on the wood and metal surfaces, the bore has deep, sharp rifling and very little evidence of use, if any outside of factory testing. The Model 1895 was Browning’s last lever action design and Winchester’s first fixed box magazine rifle, which allowed use of Spitzer (pointed) ammunition. The platform was adopted by Theodore Roosevelt and his men during the Spanish-American war and was so beloved by the President that he used it on hunting excursions for many years. This rifle was part of a limited 4,000 gun production run from 1995 to 1999 (for .30-06 variants) and comes with an un-serialized but correct factory box, owner’s manual, foam liners and the rifle’s plastic bag.
