I recommend that you purchase a copy of this book…

1440203911 – Winchester Model 94: a Century of Craftsmanship by Renneberg, Robert C – AbeBooks

Read it cover to cover at least a couple of times, then if in doubt, ask questions on this forum before buying a gun.

Hello Cecil,

Berts advice of getting the book is spot on.  We are happy to answer specific questions about defined topics but your question literally could take a book to answer because of all of the special order possibilities regarding the Model 1894/94 production.  The basic configuration possibilities were Carbines (SRC”S) with a standard 20 inch round barrel.  The other option was a Sporting Rifle with a standard 26 inch round, octagon, or half round half octagon barrel.  These could be further divided into solid frame or take down frame guns.  After this it opening Pandora’s box of options.

Yup , with app. 8,000,000 ’94s in 6 variations up to app. 51/2 million ser#range with various differences in each variation,there is a lot of information to digest, plus I don’t know about the more recent ’94’s. I’ve been collecting ’94’s for about 40 years and still have a lot to learn. Like was said Bob Rennebergs book is a good place to start, along with some of the articles found in the “Winchester Collector” magazine, of which there is access to on this site. Welcome and good luck.

YouTube can be your friend.  Just don’t believe everything you see and hear on the internet. Find a Collector show near you.  Ask specific questions on this site.

Cecil,

Post several good, in focus photos of the gun and we can advise regarding what the common value might be it.  Obviously you felt it was worth whatever you paid for it but others may value it differently.  There is no “absolute value god” or a specific number for any one rifle.  Many things can combine to inflate or detract what a gun might be worth.  

I will say that you sort of “put the cart before the horse” with your purchase and question timing.  You ALWAYS want to ask questions first before pulling out the checkbook.  It might be REAL hard to go back to the seller and ask for a few hundred dollars back because somebody says you paid too much.

Just for the Model 1894 (94) Carbines, there were many different sub-variations;

1. Saddle Ring Carbine (SRC)

2. Fancy SRC

3. Eastern Carbine

4. Transitional Carbine

5. Standard Carbine

6. Flat-band Carbine

What is the serial number and caliber for your Flat-band Carbine?

You can send pictures to me at – [email protected]
