    Where is the serial number located for the Winchester Model 94? I've looked pretty close but do not see a serial number. Thanks for the help.

    Just do a google search for Winchester 94 date of manufacture.I looked it up for you and it says your gun was made in 1982.

    I am not sure how much you know about these guns,so don't take offense if I tell you alot you already may know.I will assume that your gun's caliber is 30-30,as are most of the 94's which is common,some of the older 94's were chambered in .32-20 and other rarer calibers and worth much more because of it.The main thing on the Winchester 94's is it's dates of maunufacture.Every gun made before 1964 is a forged poured gun so they are much better quality than the guns made in 1964 to present which are stamped metal parts.A 1963 and earlier 94' can be worth about twice as much as a 1964 and later 94'.Value is all based on year and condition and caliber,I would estimate for example a 1930's 94 in very good condition in .32-20 would be worth maybe $1,200.A 94 like mine,a 1945 in 30-30 in very good condition is worth about $700,and a 1982 in very good condition would be maybe $200-$300.

    200-300 for a 92? I wish. Proof House is a good site to date Winchesters.

    Hmmm--I think ya got something there ninja--a model 94 in 32-20 would indeed bring a premium price. Mainly because it doesn't and never has existed. Model 1892 in 32-20, or even an 1873, but NOT a 1894!

    25-35, 30-30, 32-40, 32 special and 38-55--those are your 1894 calibers.

    Easy mistake to make. Sometimes I have a heck of a time remembering
    those 5 original '94 calibers:)

    If you like old 1894's, check out this site:

    I have to sit back from the computer so I don't drool on the keyboard.
    Way above my pay grade, but fun to look at.

    We have a model 94 that was purchased in 1949 (I think it's 1st year post war production) by my father in-law. It's in phenomenal condition, and we put a few rounds through it every year. I must say it's the most accurate iron sight rifle I have out to 100 yards. I have a bunch of bolt action, Milsurp, and M4 type rifles. There is something about a lever action Winnie 94 that puts a smile on your face. :D
