That's not a bad price. Though in .405 WCF I'd definitely avoid the crescent butt. Those can get painful in much smaller calibers if you don't pay close attention to what you're doing.

I've owned 1895's in .30-'03, .38-72 WCF, .35 WCF, and 405 WCF. My personal preference for round best matched to the rifle is .35 WCF, which is little known and not very appreciated.

I have a nice 38-72 with crecent buttplate which is OK..but a .405wcf would be a killer.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then the .35 WCF, which was duplicated in a rimless version by the .35 Whelen, should not be considered underappreciated.

I once owned a Dubiel built Winchester High Wall in .35 Winchester, which in a moment of weakness I allowed to slip away, much to my later regret. I occasionally see the owner and inquire as to whether he is willing to sell it back, but so far the answer has always been in the negative.

A nice '95 in 405 has always been on my list of things to have. A close friend has one in 35 WCF and used it to take an outstanding Mule Deer one year in Colorado. Tried to buy it from him once or twice. I do have a Krag that someone converted to 35 WCF and restocked that has "thumped" some game. I do not think the .35 WCF is quite in the same league as the Whelen. JMO

Fantastic rifles !!!!!!! I also think the 35 WCF might be the perfect choice in a "95".

My first real collectable rifle, bought many years ago, was a 1895 in 30-40 made in 1902. Yes the big bores are nice but there is nothing wrong with the 30-40.

I lived in New Mexico at the time. I picked up the rifle from the gunshop and stopped on the way home and shot it to check the sights. It had one of those neat climbing Lyman peep sights, model 21 if I'm remembering correctly. It was a cold and snowy February day. On a whim I stop again and took a short hike with the rifle and a coyote call. I promptly called in a big coyote and dropped him with one shot. Not a bad way to start a relationship with a wonderful old rifle.
