    MY BOOK SAYS 1907. RARELY DO WE SEE A GUN FROM THIS ERA WITH 95 % BLUE. ARE YOU SURE IT HAS NOT BEEN REBLUED??

    I WOULD RATHER BE DUCK HUNTING.

    I am positive it hasn't been reblued. Do you know what the value of the gun is or does anyone out there know?

    Hello caz...

    It is not as simple as just telling us that you have a Model "94" (which by the way with a serial of 405938, should actually be marked "Model 1894").

    1. Is your Model 1894 a Sporting Rifle, a Deluxe Sporting Rifle, or a Saddle Ring Carbine (SRC)[?].
    2. Full octagon, full round, or 1/2 octagon barrel[?]
    3. Exact barrel length[?]
    4. Solid frame or Takedown[?]
    5. Straight grip buttstock or pistol grip[?]
    6. Plain walnut stocks, gumwood, or deluxe checkered stocks[?]
    7. Plain trigger or a set trigger[?]
    8. Standard sporting (open) sights, or upgrade special order sight (including a tang sight)[?]

    Inquiring minds want to know[:0][:)]

    3. Barrel length is 29 or 30 inches. I think that you REALLY need to recheck this... 29-inches would be a real problem, 30-inches would make it a "special order". 26-inches was standard
    4. It is a solid frame.
    5. It has a straight grip buttstock.
    6. Plain walnut stock.
    7. Plain trigger.
    8. Standard sporting open sights.

    OK... the dentist office is now closed![:D]

    If your Model 1894 rifle truly has 95% of its factory original bluing still on the frame (and the barrel), it is worth about $1600 - $1800 retail. I just so happened to very recently see a real nice 1907 vintage Model 1894 Sporting Rifle that was in 90% condition (but with the more desirable octagon barrel) sell for $1800... and that was before the additional 12% buyers premium was tacked on. Your Sporting Rifle is worth slightly less in the collectors market due to the full round barrel.

    Huh[?][?] What are you talking about[?] If you are trying to ask a question, please start a brand new post, and clearly ask what you want to know along with a detailed description of what you are asking about... very few of us are successful mind readers[:0][:)]
