Hello Bert,
I recently obtained a Winchester model 94 carbine,serial number 1762061,caliber stamp .30-30 Win., serrated hammer, flat checkered steel butt plate, short fore end wood, not tapped for receiver sight, blank upper tang. I'm hoping this Winchester is from 1951 also my birth year, am I close? Thanks, Greg LaHaie

    What was the first year the 94 was factory drilled for a lyman Receiver peep sight?

    I recently acquired a Model 94 made in 1949 in very good 90+ condition & finish....still has the original sight hood is in place. My question is, would properly installing a original factory saddle ring hurt the value of this rifle ?? or should I leave it alone (not looking for a increase in value, certainly don't want to hurt value either).

    I am looking for recommendations on obtaining a Winchester Model 94 for my collection. I have seen this firearm several times an fall in love with it every time I look at one. I would eventually like to have two, one shooter and a collectible. What should I be looking for?

    When did they start drilling the receiver for a receiver sight on the Winchester 94 and did they do that for the 92?

    Have a Winchester 94 with the safety mounted on the receiver. When engaged, blocks the hammer from hitting firing pin. Is that what they call a cross bolt safety?

    I just received a gun from my Grandma that was my Grandpa's before he passed away. It is a Winchester 94 32W.S. with a serial number of 374615. Can anyone tell me approximately when this gun was manufactured? It is something I'd never get rid of, but I am just a little curious about its history.
    Thanks.

    loose fore end on 94 Wichester carbine with Barrel Band, gun is unfired condition is this a normal finding on some of these rifles and is it reflective of the quality control and fit and finish on 1986 run rifles.

    I have Winchester 94 rifle 26'' round barrel,higher grade wood with crescent trap door butt plate. The rifle was made in 1926. the hole in stock at trap door is 6'' deep. This seems short for a cleaning rod. Could the factory have made this for any other reason. Cody museum does not have the records for this rifle.

    Did any of the winchester 1894 rifles come with a shorter than 26 inch octagon barrel? I have one with a 20 inch octagon barrel. It does not look like the barrel has been cut off from a longer barrel.

    I have a Win 94 made around 1969 that has a nickeled or chromed receiver and was wondering if this was a factory job or aftermarket. It is not a commemorative as there are no markings except the regular Winchester barrel markings. Any info is appreciated. Terrill

    I have a model 94 Winchester 30-30, probaby around 1952 based on its serial number. I'm wondering if anyone has a ballpark estimate of its worth, or where to go for it. The gun looks unfired (wood is undamaged, grease still on the hammer, lever and in the champer, no scratching of the metal, no pitting or rust). Thanks for any info.

    I have run accross a model 94 carbine with barrel markings I have not seen in my reference books. Did Winchester mark barrels MADE IN NEW HAVEN? I have only seen the MADE IN used with USA. Also was the PROOF STEELE notation used on carbines? And did Winchester use a MODEL 94 30-30 win as a caliber marking?

    Thanks

    Hello Forum... I just purchased two Winchester 9412 rifles, new in the box, unfired. They have a notation on the box which says, "Assembled in Canada by Winchester." I have searched Gunbroker for Model 9412, to no avail. Can someone tell me: a.)Is there any negative affect to their value since they were 'made in Canada'??? b.) The approximate manufacture date??? c.) The approximate value??? d.) The significance of the '12' model designation???
    They are both in 100% condition with boxes and all factory papers.
    Thanks to all who reply.
    John

    I have a Winchester 94 sn90828, which according to my sn guide means that it was made ca. 1897. I wrote to Cody and they replied the only info in the records was that it was a 30 caliber carbine, which it is, but that it was recieved in the warehouse Sept. 12, 1900. Is it usuall for a 94 made in 1897 to not be warehoused until 1900? Any ideas?

    I have the chance to buy a Winchester 94 like new in box from my brother. He said he has fired about 8 rounds through it. It's got the cross bolt safety and is .45 LC. I think it's a trapper because it's short. He said he would take $350 for it. How much is it worth now and how much will it be worth now that they wont make them anymore?

    Winchester began drilling & tapping the Model 94 in 1952 as a standard feature. It was a special order option beginning in the mid 1930s.

    The Model 92 was never drilled & tapped for a receiver mounted peep sight.
