…post, but I ran across one of these and wanted to let you know, so you could add it to your list (if you don't have it already).  It is a 1941 model 94, 30 WCF, serial #1265811.  I'll email you a photo.

Take care!

…Don,

Bert is correct and has given you good info.  For value, the post-war, non-grooved Model 63's in about your condition have been selling recently in the $550-$600 range.  The pre-war and post-1955 grooved receiver versions bring more…

For comparison, here is one similar to yours that just sold on Gunbroker a few weeks ago - https://www.gunbroker.com/item/943463908
