Model '94, I assume? If so, SN dates it to 1973.

I am amazed every day at the number of people who have no idea how to do a search of the web.

I had one made a few years later that contributed to two unintended discharges. The design of the hammer with shallow knurling allowed it to slip from the grip of my thumb when bringing the gun to half cock. Both times happened in the summer when my hands were sweaty.

I have a Model 94 & simply love it. I shoot cast in mine mostly but it is a totally adequate game rifle in the woods. I've shot mine to 300 yards using the RCBS 30-180-FN & 22 grains of IMR 3031. A 22-250 it isn't but if you shoot your rifle enough to learn it hits are easy enough to make. A Lyman 66 receiver sight is your friend. I call mine a hillbilly assault rifle.

.BUT Would Like To Know If It's Worth It?-

Wellllll. I don't know what it looks like or how much you paid. Only thing I can think of IIRC is around the 70s receivers were sintered metal and not blued but used something else. They look black. Problem is you can't blue them if it needs it. Otherwise if if it's a good price for condition I'd buy it. But not sight unseen. Oh and "Winny" was a Pooh or little girl on The Wonder Years who grew up to be a beautiful young lady who is just as smart in mathmatics. Wrote some books for girls to read encouraging them to get into those programs.

blkwollf - Your 1973 Winchester 94 has what's known as " the changes of 1970" (upgrades)


Winchester switched from forged steel receivers with solid pins and a machined cartridge lifter for the 1964 model year, creating the (mostly) hated post-64 Winchester 94's.

After years of complaints from customers & mostly gun writer's, in 1970 made some more modifications to the Model 94.

The changes involved a switch from a sheet metal lifter to a solid (cast) lifter, and the replacement of some of the roll pins with solid pins.

The receivers were still made of sintered metal, in several different finishes: "What looks like bluing", Pewter, Silver, Gold, Brass , faux Case Colors & Black Chrome, depending upon the version (commemorative, etc).

The only exceptions AFAIK were the 1978-82 .375 Winchester BigBore 94's, which had blued forged steel receivers.

In 1982, with the introduction of the Model 94AE (Angle Eject), Winchester returned once again to using blued forged steel receivers for all Model 94's.

Look for a clean pre-64, you'll be much happier in the end. Don't overlook them in .32 caliber, I just found one that was made in 1919, good shape, lovely patina, excellent bore, $550. It has the ladder sight, you don't see that very often. They are out there, shop the small shops in the country. I stay away from the gun supermarkets.

As far as gun condition goes I'm not sure what " Pretty Decent Shape" is but for a 70s 94 in what I'm guessing is less than excellent condition I'd be around $350 - 375.

Pictures would help.

I buy pre 1964 or Angle Eject only.

For one of those in between years I wouldn’t pay over $350 for a like new one. Adjust the price to the condition. To me, there are too many others with forged receivers to buy the mystery metal rifles.
