Hello Dennis,

Yes, I am still surveying the Model 94s. After you get it in hand, please update this post with the verified serial number.

Per the original Winchester factory serialization records, your Model 94 Carbine was manufactured very shortly after production resumed at the end of WW II, on 10/17/1945. It is completely standard.

Thanks Bert,

I pulled the magazine tube and the date "42" was stamped on the barrel. Could the barreled receiver have been left as an assembly and then finished in 1945?

No. The serial number clearly indicated that the receiver was not manufactured until October of 1945. Production of the Model 94 was temporarily halted in late August of 1942 to support the WW II efforts. At the time production was halted, Winchester had a stock pile of "42" barrels ready to use. When Production resumed in September of 1945, new receiver frames were made, and the remaining stock of 1942 barrels were used to assemble them.

The serial number on your Model 1894 identifies it as a November 1900 production rifle. More than likely it has the I-pattern checkering, which would make it a "semi-deluxe" rifle.
