Model 1895 Repeating Rifle

"Teddy Roosevelt's Rifle"

The first delivery of this rifle was made on February 1, 1896. With this new model, Winchester met the demand for hunting rifles capable of handling higher-powered smokeless cartridges comparable to the military ammunition of the time. About the first 5,000 were made with flat-sided receivers.

During the Spanish-American War a number of Model 1895 muskets, chambered for the 30-40 Krag cartridge, were sold for use by the US Army. President Theodore Roosevelt carried an 1895 on his famous hunting trip through Africa. And, during 1915 and 1916, over 290,000 Model 1895 muskets with bayonets were manufactured for the Imperial Russian Government. The first 15,000 of these were made with an 8" blade bayonet, and the balance possessed a 16" blade sword bayonet; a formidable weapon in any era.

Manufacture of the Model 1895 rifle was stopped in 1931, and approximately 425,881 were made.

PGW does not manufacture the upper handguard for the 1895 carbine or musket, and has no plans to do so. Sorry!

Our Winchester Model 1895 stocks are intended ONLY for early original firearms, manufactured through 1931. They are not correct for recently manufactured reproduced or re-introduced models. Despite rumors and claims to the contrary, these later models are not exact reproductions of early original Winchesters.

Winchester 1895 Carbine Buttstock

This stock is machined for an original Winchester 1895 carbine or musket buttplate. It is also drilled for the cleaning rod.

Please note: PGW does not offer Model 1895 carbine buttplates. These buttplates are specific to 1895 carbines and muskets, and are unlike any other buttplates. Due to differences in overall size, curvature, and tang design and dimensions, buttplates from other makes and models are not easily adapted to this stock. This includes Winchester 1892/1894 carbine buttplates which, although similar in appearance, cannot be fitted to a Model 1895 carbine buttstock without extensive modifications to both the stock and the buttplate. Original 1895 carbine buttplates are extremely difficult to locate, but are occasionally available from auction sites such as eBay.
