    The upper carrier may be correct for newer 1894s but the lower one is correct for rifles up to at least 1,008,000 serial number, which is the highest number I own. In the pre-war, and probably pre-64s, the carrier in any 1894 is identical, regardless of the caliber. The cartridge guides, however, are not identical. There are four different guides depending on caliber.
