Seems to be a great buy. Here in WI those older 94s fetch a pretty penny these days.

Looks exactly like mine,same condition and all,mine is in the 1,350,XXX range and it's a 1945,so i'd take a guess and say yours is 1946?-ish.You got a decent deal on it,now days they will go for around $500 but they are worth around $700+ for one like yours when the economy is better.You will always get someone offering you money for it so it's a good investment.

Hello Rich1028,

Let me clear up a few things that 30-30 remchester posted. Your rifle was actually manufactured during 1946. The "flat band" version of the Model 94 was produced from 1946 until almost the end of 1948. The rifle is missing its runded front sight hood. Based on what I can see in the photos you posted your purchase price of $425 was a very good buy.

Michael

Hey guys, thanks for turning me on to the Winchester date site. I now know that my Model 71 .348WCF is a 1955, and my Model 100 7.62mm is a 1963. When my surgically repaired right foot allows me to walk again, I'll fetch my Model 61 from the garage and nail the date on that one as well. It was my Dad's first gun and I believe it is pre-war and now I can easily look it up. Sometimes technology can be useful!
