    I don't have an exact year, but a Winchester Model 94 serial number 961350 would be closer to 1927.

    If you can't feel the music; it's only pink noise!

    In order to determine with any credibility the potential value of your Model 94 we would need either a complete and very detailed description of the gun and its features or better yet detailed pictures posted in this forum. Values would vary greatly depending on originality, condition, and configuration. At this point we don't know if your Model 94 is a Standard Carbine, Special Order Carbine, Deluxe Carbine, Trapper Carbine, Standard Rifle, Special Order Rifle, or a Special Order Deluxe Rifle and without clarifying information it is impossible to know.

    Detailed photos are best and you can find instructions on posting photos if you look at the top of this forum or follow this link:

    Your 94 6-digit serial (961350) was made circa 1925. You misread the information in the sticky... a 5-digit serial in the 96,000 range would be a Model 1894, and 1901 would be correct.

    The reblue all but destroyed any collector value. It is simply a shooter now. The value is something less than $400.

    It always was just a family heirloom , not for sale.

    jackd, Bert is right about the reblue destroying the value and his estimate of $400 or less is probably right for a standard Model 94. However, if your Model 94 is other than a standard Winchester it may potentially be worth more, but certainly much less than a Model 94 in original condition.

    My guess is that it is a standard Carbine. If I am correct, it will have a 20-inch round barrel, with the front barrel band forward of the front sight post. If you can post a few pictures of it, I can quickly identify exactly what it is.
