I saw one at a gun show once, maybe 8 years ago...price was north of the asking price for a nice Johnson 1941 or G.43 (all at the same show - I just about had to go the the hospital for the "if erection lasts more than four hours" )12_Gauge_Chimp wrote:I'm still looking for an all original Winchester Model 1895 Russian Contract musket.
In the last ten years, I've only seen one and that one was sporterized at some point. It wasn't a bad sporter job, but I was looking for an all original one. Probably should've paid the asking price and tried to either restore it or just shot it as is.
I'd pay good money for a repro one if Winchester would make one like they did with the .405 and .30-40 Krag models from a few years back.
But oh hell yeah, if Winchester made a re-issue, I'd be all over it.
