I recently acquired a model 94 with serial number 1183667, I had a individual appraise it already, but I was hoping to get a second opinion as it was higher than I had imagined.  I have linked photos the best I could get. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/924/tjEusm.jpgImage Enlarger https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/922/amJZa5.jpgImage Enlarger https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/924/QqvQ6K.jpgImage Enlarger https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/924/m1bSg0.jpgImage Enlargerhttps://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/924/uxFUUR.jpgImage Enlarger https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/923/gpGrS6.jpgImage Enlarger https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/922/7MEQqD.jpgImage Enlarger https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/924/TJvtBk.jpgImage Enlarger https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq70/924/ZkJOGy.jpgImage Enlarger all photos are imageshack. 

there was two things he did mention to me that looked replaced however it looked factory replaced was the lever mechanism and possibly the extractor as they are black coating not the factory blue. and the other was the stamp just in front of the receiver it appears to have been either cleaned or repaired as it is not as rigid as it would be factory its almost a smooth feel instead of ridged. 

 

any help with this would be very appreciated.

Hello Andrew,

You did not include a picture of the areas you are concerned about.  If you can do so, take your pictures outdoors in natural light, but in a lightly shaded location.  Use a solid background cover (cloth) that is not white or black.  You can send the pictures directly to me.

Which caliber is this Carbine?

I am not seeing anything about the lever that looks out of place, but the picture is not well illuminated.

Thank you, I will get some more photos to you. This weekend is busy for me as I am pulling a couple double shifts. Is there anything special about the 1938 that would increase or decrease the value? This would be my first technically antique item that I have. I plan to keep it as a heirloom however I was trying to get a ballpark worth just to have for records.

No, there is nothing special about it being a 1938 production Carbine.  As an FYI, it is a “modern” firearm versus an “antique”.  Per Federal regulations, a firearm must have been manufactured before January 1st, 1899 to be classified as “antique”.

With the better pictures, I will be able to more accurately assess the graded condition and corresponding value.

Ah, Thank you once again for giving me some knowledge. As you can tell I am completely new to the older things and welcome any knowledge. I do appreciate your time in helping me with this.
