Default The Classic Winchester 94

This old classic is part of a another collection I've been asked to liquidate. This particular 94 was manufactured in 1963. As I understand it, anything pre-1964 is very desirable as after 1964 they altered the design a bit, and many thought it was just a cheapening of the cost to build. It's in pretty good shape to my eyes, and the action is crisp with everything being tight as it should be. I think I'm going to buy this one myself. Not often something like that comes around anymore. Take a peak:

Obviously, its at the top of the picture

You should open the lever exposing the screws in the lever linkage. The post 64s were are pinned.

There is one for sale in town in 30-30. Can't rember the price. Guy at store said the new marlin was better.

Marlins are OK. But there is just something about that old "Flat Side" 94 Winchester that still grabs my gun loving heart. I still have my first 94 30-30 from the 1950s.
Maybe a guy never really forgets his first love after all.

It was beautiful. Aside from the side attached scope mounts.

I have an 1898 94 & a 1956 94. Both in 30-30. The old one is a keeper for sure.

I think I'd take an old beat up 94 over just about any Marlin. There's just something about it that other guns don't have. I've wanted one for a while, never wanted to spend the money for one though. I can't even begin to count how many I held over the years urging myself to just buy it. This one just happened to fall into my hands. There is a little marring to the blue, looks like something acidic was splashed on it at some point in the past, but it's just a cosmetic blemish nothing more. I'm from the line of thinking that you don't buy a classic muscle car and trailer it to and from shows, you drive those beasts like you stole'em. I think of my guns the same way, I have no need for safe queens. I want something I can shoot and enjoy.

Also, if you look closely at the first picture, you can see the screw on the underside that was removed in the post 64 guns.

I have never given any thought to how a scope mount fits on a Model 94. The model 94 has got to be one of the best and most fun rifles ever to shoot with iron sights. I still have the 94 I bought in '73. I still take it out and shoot it with the rest of my guns. I can hit a pop can at 100 yards easy enough. I would never consider putting a scope on it.
