Regarding 94’s 1940-1964 production. Are there only the three calibers available. 30-30 32 WS & 25-35? Also it would appear that the 25-35’s are bringing approximately double that of a 30-30 or 32WS are bringing in the same condition.

Sometimes 3 times. On the Smith and Wesson forum a while back a nice 1946 flat band came up for sale. $1,800 + shipping. I got the seller to agree on $1,600+ shipping, and I bought it. At the Big Reno show a couple months back, I saw a couple of later 25-35’s for sale and was about to buy a nice one for $1,800 and went back to my table to read up on them. 5 minutes later, the carbine was gone. Another was for sale for the same amount, but not nearly as nice as the first one so I passed. The flat band is a little scarcer than the post war carbines and has a little premium attached. I advise anyone looking for a 25-35 to get going ASAP. This caliber in a M94 is increasing very steadily. Big Larry

Winchester officially discontinued the 32-40 and 38-55 calibers in the Model 94 as of January 1938. That stated, there were a few parts clean-up guns made in those calibers up to WW II.

The 25-35 WCF was discontinued in December of 1951, but again, there were a small number of parts clean-up guns made in that caliber as late as 1953.

In my on going research survey of the Model 94 production from January 1927 through 1963, I have thus far recorded 6100+ guns, with just (200) of them being made in 25-35 (3.3%). Extrapolated over the total production in those same years (1,524,650), the forecasted total for the 25-35 would be (50,402) guns in that caliber.

Thank you gents. Yes I have certainly noticed they are asking and getting top dollar for this caliber. I just paid 1700 for one, literally just paid. I bought it just on the strength of a stack of photographs and a very detailed description I certainly have no reason to doubt. It’s pretty much close to mint so I am actually pretty happy with that from what you have told me here although I still wont be completely satisfied and happy till I have it in my hands in the flesh.
Bert, asking you questions is like looking up the answers in the back of the book. You’re the man. Thank you

Here is my M94 Flat Band # 1382800, 25-35 WCF. No XXX’s. It is a little strange as it has no strain screw, a type # 2 hammer, and a 3" spacing for the rear sight. I have three Flat Bands, two early and one late. The two others are 30 WCF’s, and are in better condition than this one. Big Larry

No I did not have it listed. Does it have the "W" stamp below the serial number?

No, it is not significant. Nearly all Model 94 Carbines, and Model 64s manufactured between February 1939 – February 1941 have the "W" stamp. It was used as a quality control check for the new bluing formula that Winchester began using in 1939.

I’d like to buy a tang sight or maybe receiver peep sight for my 25-35. Which would be the period correct model for this one made in 1941?

The oft (mis)quoted "43-48" void does not exist. The PR records are available through December 29th, 1945. Production of the Model 94/64 was suspended for WW II in August of 1942, and resumed in June of 1945.

Unless your Model 94 is factory drilled & tapped for a receiver mounted peep sight, you do not want to install one. The upper tang should be drilled & tapped for a tang sight. Winchester would have used a Lyman No. 1A (DA application code).

Marty,

No, but maybe you can answer my question…

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram truck in decent condition, any idea how much it is worth?

Seriously, you will need to provide a lot more detail (and some pictures) of your Winchester before anyone on of us can start to answer your question.
