Hello, I stumbled across this site and love it!! Thank you for having me!

I recently added a 1955 Winchester Model 94, 30-30 to my collection (my first WInchester). Bought recently from a life long friend from the left coast, retired weapons auctioneer, his own private collection he is pairing down. This model came with documentation was owned by the Santa Barbara Sheriff Office back in the 1950’s. He obtained it in 2016 when the Deputy brought it to him. He was told it was hanging in the chiefs office for decades and hardly ever used, they are renovating and decided to bring it in for consignment or sale. My friend loved it, so he kept it himself. The only frown I thought was the engraving on the base of the stock SBSO 121 which make it official on the history with the paperwork but in a sense did in the originality of the stock. But either way I am retired LEO and my friend thought it would be best to go to me being this was a LEO firearm in excellent unmolested shape. I haven’t shot it yet, though I will have to try it out as it will remain in a pampered life with my other long guns. I am new to these and I am all ears on learning more!!

Hello Richard and welcome to the WACA forum.  That is a very nice model 94. I don’t think the markings on the stock distract from the value at all, since it has documented law enforcement history.

Your Model 94 is a standard Sporting Carbine, and the PD marking does not hurt its value.  I do recommend that you get the provenance in written form.

You can get the precise date of manufacture by contacting Pauline Muerrle – Pauline Muerrle | Winchester Authentication
