I’ll go take a closer look. If it follows me home it’s all (or at least partly) you fault.

True enough. It’s a very unremarkable 70% gun but it appears solid and unmolested, unlike my bank account. 😉

Thanks… I suspect that it will have a “47” marked barrel.

Are you sure it is a type 2 receiver?  All of the Model 94s I have surveyed thus far with serial numbers > 1473000 have a Type 3 receiver frame.

Are you sure that it has a serrated hammer? Nearly all of the Flat-band Carbines I have surveyed in the 1375000 – 1406300 have the old style knurled (checkered) hammers.

Thank you for posting the information,
Bert

I’ll post some pics to make sure I’m not mistaken somewhere, but the hammer is definitely straight horizontal cuts.

Gary,

The serial number on your Model 94 Carbine indicates that it was manufactured 4-years before the Flat-band was introduced.  Can you send me clear pictures of the barrel band, and the factory markings on the barrel and upper tang?

Bert, it is my error, I purchased the rifle advertised as a flat band, just picked it up at the gun shop and it is a regular band model 94 serial number 1340813.

Sorry for the error

No problem… does it have the Type 7 upper tang marking?  Is it drilled & tapped for a tang sight?  Most of the very late 1942 production Model 94 Carbines were not drilled & tapped for a tang sight.

Thanks for the update, and it fits right in with all the others I have recorded in that serial range.
