    Hello,

    I have a question regarding a model 94 that I have had for some time. The serial number is 4224xxx and I purchased it as new in the box. The box is marked 30-30 Winchester / One 9412. The barrel is stamped 32 Winchester special and I slugged it and it is indeed 32 Spl.

    Did Winchester ever rebarrel Model 94's to a different caliber at the customer's request?

    I'm thinking of purchasing a model 94 30-30 from a friend. It was made in 1949 and has a monte carlo style stock with what looks like a bear carved on one side. The gun is fair to good condition for its age. Any ideas as to it's value? I can send a picture if that would help.

    Thanks,

    Rusty

    I have a Winchester model 94 that was made in 1971. It has an engraved stock. On both sides of the forearm is engraved acorns and on one side of the butt stock are two Elk fighting. Does any body have any more information and what would it be worth? It is in excellent ondition.

    I did some searching and got a round about idea, but would like more specific info.

    I have a Winchester model 94 30-30 with the 20 inch barrel and hooded sights. The stock is wooden and smooth, not checkered. It has probably nly been fired 10 times since it was new. The action is tight, the blueing is in great shape. The stock has a few minor dings and scratches. The serial # showed a 1977 build date.

    Whats it worth? I wanted to get a new pistol and trade in a gun I never use.

    I am looking for date of manufacture and approx value on a Winchester Model 94 serial #2342929. The gun is 100%, never been fired condition. I have the box and tags but still can't find the date it was made. I am guessing somewhere in the 1950's??

    Thanks

    Question-when did Winchester change the tang/buttstock design on the 94's. It was before 1964, but I don't know when or what serial number.

    I have a really nice model 94 38-55 built it 1900. It has a really clean bore but a lot of wear. It really has been taken care of but the accuracy is really way off. If you were me would you have it relined or just say it is a 100 year old gun and forget it?

    What is the significance of 1964 for the model 94? I see a lot of the listings for these mentioning wether it is a pre- or post-64 gun. I was just wanting to know what that meant.

    Thanks

    This is my first post and I'm not as much up on older weapons as I would like to be but oh well.

    Statement and question;

    I have a Winchester Model 94 .30 W.C.F.(not a Yellowbelly) It was made on August 5, 1902 and sat on the shelf until it was purchased by my Great Great Grandfather in 1905, which he carried the rifle in the last years he rode with the calvelry till 1910 (As what has been dug up, I dont know how much of it rings true, I have no proof of the year because the photos of him carrying the rifle are not dated). I know this only by a search done by the Wild Bill Cody Museum last year. I hooked up with the son of one of the curators that told me he could find out all I needed to know on the rifle. That said... The gentilemen (his father)I talked to on the phone and e-maild the pics of the rifle and my Grandfather to, made an offer to purchase the rifle from me. He said it was worth $8,000.00 to $13,000.00. I have not heard of rifles going for this much and after checking around on this site I dont see how this price could be honest. He also added if I were to take it to auction it could bring as much as $30,000.00 to $33,000.00 because of the rifles history, and the right buyer was wanting it.

    Does this sound like B.S.? I would sell it for $8,000.00 in a heart beat, I'm not that attached to the rifle anyhow. But I dont want to give it away either if $8,000.00 is the least it's worth.

    The only thing on the rifle that is not original is the stop for the slide on the rear sight that keeps the sight from sliding off the top. The stop was installed by a smith at the Cody Museum.

    I acquired a Winchester model 94 serial #4043416 circa 1974. Unfired, in original box. There are no printing of MFG. or caliber on the barrel, just proof stamp on top of barrel and receiver.

    Gun has minor handling rust on bottom and side of receiver.
    Question: is there any interest or collector value of missing MFG. and caliber on barrel?

    Perhaps one of a kind or a batch??? Please reply.

    Bought a winchester model 94, octagon barrel, 30 cal. serial number puts it from 1900. Great shape and also comes with a letter from Winchester. My question is. this gun came with a 4 round magazine. Have not seen that before and letter even states that it was made at the factory this way. Was wondering on value for this oddity and why would someone want a 4 shot versus a 1/2. 3/4, or full magazine? thanks

    I would like to find a octagon barrel, crescent butt stock model 94 but I have no idea what years they were made. I have a Classic in my collection but I would like to find a shooter.

    What do you guys consider to be the most desirable of the older 94's. I really would like to have one with a crescent butt stock, but I have seen them in round,Octagon and half octagon/round barrels. Is it just personal or would one expect to pay more for a particular type of barrel. I am talking a gun you could shoot but also be in a collectable group. I've looked at most the gun sellers on line and they are all over the board on price and no particular design seems to lead in cost except those of special ordered guns and fancy grade wood.

    I'm far from an expert, but:
    Are you looking for a vintage 1894? There are loads of them on the auction side that I'm sure you could find one in just about any caliber and any configuration you may want. 1/2 mag, take down, pistol grip, checkered, etc, oct barrel, and crescent butt. 30-30(30WCF) is probably the most common caliber. I feel a nice shooter can still be bought quite reasonably.
    Or, are you looking for a newer "post 64" '94?
    Good luck,
    Ed

    They are some used Comm. shooters that would fit the bill, if you are not looking for a true vintage one-

    Winchester manufactured the original Model 1894/94 with an octagon barrel from October 1894 through December 1937. There are lots of them out there if you look.

    I am looking for a vintage 1894 with the Hexagon barrel and the crescent stock. If there is tons of them I am looking in the wrong place. Of course there is all kinds of Winchester 94's but I am not seeing many that fit what I am looking for. I would think there has to be a cut off year for the Hexagon barrel with the crescent stock.

    You won't find one with a hexagon barrel. A hexagon only has 6 sides, which Winchester never made. You want an octagon (8-sided) barrel.

    There are several listed on the auction side. Here are a couple but there are more:

    Spider, apparently you are not up on the nomenclature: An 8-sided rifle barrel is called a "hex" barrel! (And a 1911 pistol is loaded with a "clip", and a Leupold scope is a "lee-ah-pold", and the part that we seat into a cartridge case is called a "bullet head", etc.)
