…traded a 2002 Model 94AE in .44 Mag for it.  Some said that I got the losing end of the deal, but I beg to differ.  I've been wanting a Model 63 for the longest time but have not found one in decent enough condition.  A Model 94 AE, made in 2002, is not a Winchester to me.

…said

So since my 94 was manufactured in 1994 it is 100 years into the model 94s, its not an anniversary model but still a 1994, I wonder if that ups the value?

  

Not likely.  There is very little collector interest in the late production Model 94.

I came across this thread and thought I'd try to help. I'm looking at a Model 94 in ".30 WCF", and the year of manufacture is 1948, serial 1,50X,XXX. So the change of caliber name on the rifle would have to be after '48.

… they weren't below "mid-summer 1920" production, according to Houze; optional thereafter until 1924.  Must have been a popular option, as my 1921 model had them. 

I wonder if the person who mounted the block on the rcvr of that GI gun you almost bought had seen rear blocks mounted the same way on

So yes Chuck…

…you are correct ! There are more 1866's engraved than any other model. and more before 1875 also. mine was made in 1874 and is before 125,000

…of opinions, before I became convinced it was not right. The one thing I learned throughout my ordeal was that there are lots of period engraved Model 1866's, both marked by an engraver and not marked. There is nothing wrong with a high quality, period engraved 66 done by an unknown engraver but if

Rogers did have some tells if you knew where to look and I told the guy it was restored by Rogers and the guy fanatically denied it. I offered him

As to the GI page for this gun. It needs a lot better pictures for anyone to see any engraving detail and Pauline

…for posting that Bob.  After thinking about this, Pauline would be evaluating the engraving itself, regardless of what model Winchester it is on.  Many styles of engraving were used across multiple models. So why would the model really matter?

I am looking at a Model 1886 Carbine to buy. It would be in "Like New Condition". So, I am not sure if it real or is it Memorex? That condition in an antique Winchester

…no more $900, though as we all see on GB, there can be crazy exceptions when two yuppie know-nothings butt heads.  They bring less than any other model, for good reasons.  That price on GI is ridiculous unless it's a very low serial in mint cond.; look back in a yr., & I'll bet it's still

…your buying.

Probably not many dealers back then selling "Loose" cartridges. Probably not many gun owners back then that owned both a Winchester Model 1886 and a Colt Lighting Magazine Rifle in 45-85.

…. Winchester was very inconsistent with updating changes to their engineering drawings. I have seen numerous examples of this over several different models, not just the 70's. The spring dimensions could have been changed and never documented.

…recently got a Model 94AE and I was hoping someone could help me identify the exact kind.

It has a 16 inch barrel, no tang safety, no cross-bolt safety, no saddle ring…

…safety (which requires you to squeeze the lever for the trigger to pull). 

The serial number indicates it was built in 1987. It’s not a trapper model, but I have no idea what it could be
