The model 94 is a lever right?

7/30 rounds? Removable magazine or fixed? The m94 is a hunting firearm that can be used for battle, the AK is a battle rifle that can be used for hunting. Just depends on what you think you need.

In my mind, it is no contest.

It all depends on what you're going to use it for and what you're looking for. I love the old Winchester 94, but I also love the old Ak 47. The Winchester for me is more of a hunting rifle/plinker. The Ak 47 for me is a SHTF rifle/plinker. I would personally go for the Winchester, because I have a special place in my heart for Winchester, but more so lever actions .

My big thing about bugging out is everthing that comes with me has to fit on my body. If it can't be thrown over a shoulder or strapped on, its not coming. Being 5'6" 135lbs really limits me. Good thing I've learned a lot about bushcraft woodslore nature etc. In my minds bug out scenerio, I see myself using my gun more for hunting than self defence. I don't think many people will see me honestly. My 30 30 is more accurate than my ak. I should have got it in .223 rather than 7.62. My minds made up about all my other guns, just haven't nailed it on my go to carbine.

I'm with everyone else on this. What your going to use it for is the biggest deciding factor. Home defense or hunting/survival? Once you have figured that out it should be an easy decision

If when the SHTF it's a full on charge of whitetails, I'd go with the 94.

For my bug out or SHTF firearms I would have my 1911A1, Winchester 94, Ak 47, and a Remington 870 Express Magnum. Now I'm 6'4 so I can obviously carry more gear with me, and I live in the suburbs, but the vast majority of my time I'm on my family owned property of I think 40 acres or so. Each one of the firearms is for a specific purpose; 1911A1 obviously for close range 1-7 yards, Winchester 94 is for 200 yards or more, AK 47 is for 100-200 yards, and the Remington 870 Express is for 50-100 yards. Now I know some of you might be wondering; Why is a Winchester 94 Carbine used for longer ranges than the AK? Simply, because I'm more proficient with it than the AK 47 at those ranges.

I'm more accurate with my 94 aswell. I'm carrying a pistol, carbine, and a long range rifle. I'll wait til the shtf before I saw off my shotgun, until then its too big to carry with all the other stuff.
