What year did Winchester stop using the seratted metal buttplate, on the 94 Carbine, and start using the black plastic one?

I tried searching, but no help.

Thanks

Hello Dave,

Winchester used the serrated steel butt plates from June 1937 through December 1945, then transitioned to the nearly flat checkered steel butt plates in early 1946.  The plastic butt plates replaced the steel butt plates sometime shortly after the 1964 debacle.

Bert,

So, if I have a 1949 date 94 carbine with the Winchester black plastic butt plate, it’s not correct?

Thanks, Dave

Unfortunately for you, that is a correct assessment.  No black plastic butt plated until sometime after 1964.
