Very interesting piece of pre war history. I Just bought a model 94, 32 special serial #1252952 that came with the original sales receipt, and a half box of Western Super X, Silvertips. There are actually 9 original silver tip cartridges remaining. The box has the standing grizzly bear picture. The back of the cartridge box reads "Adapted to Winchester Models 64, 65, and 94". I read where some of these boxes are in error because the model 65 was never chambered for the .32 special.

The sales receipt is dated 11/15/41, and the cost of the rifle is priced $35.65, and the box of Silvertip ammo is priced $1.46. Total $37.11.

Bert, for your survey. This gun has the W stamped below the serial number with the type 7 tang markings and provision for a tang sight.

Very nice to have that kind of provenance. I would love to see a photo of the 94 and the receipt and the box of shells just to enjoy your find from a distance.

Al,

Thanks for the information. The PR records show that it was serialized in November of 1940.

Michael, interesting,and it was bought just a few weeks before Pearl Harbor.
I think the 1941 deer season opener here in PA was Monday November 24.
I'm trying to get more information from the guy I bought it from. I'd like to know if it was originally bought here in PA and stayed? The Model 94 has definately been the most popular deer rifle in PA for years.
