Lots of websites have them, few are correct.

Let us know what year it is. I like these old winchesters and bought one last year i felt was inique. It was made during WW11 and i found that to be neat to me.

The Model 1895 was made continuously until 1931, then sporadically until 1940. If yours is an old antique gun with # 818, it was indeed made in 1896. The model 1895 was made for 45 years. There are modern reproductions of the model for sale today.

Your gun has the pistol grip option, and probably the shotgun butt. It sounds like a rare one indeed. At that time you could order a new Winchester pretty much any way you wanted it. If you are planning to sell, get in touch with the Cody museum, they will help you out to authenticate it. Don't trust any serial # website or garage shop gun trader, you may have a very valueable piece. Best of luck with your sale.
