Hello Bert,
I would like to commend you for the very interesting and imformative article about the Winchester Model 64 Rifle and Carbine in the last issue of the Winchester Collector. I am enthralled by the Model 1894, Model 94,made between 1928 and 1940 and all it’s variants espically the Model 64. For a job well done and the enormous time spent doing it, Thank You Bert. hokie

I too truly enjoyed the Model 64 article. I also liked the one on Mel’s Winchester.

Gentlemen,

Thank you all for the compliments. 🙂

I intend to update all of the extrapolation tables and information in future editions of the Collector magazine (for both the Model 55 and 64).

Currently I am working on new articles for the Model 43, 65, and 71. I have research surveys in progress for those models, and I am continuing the surveys for the Models 55, 64, and 94.

I am also working on an article about the Model 1893, and working with a fellow WACA member for a future article discussing the Model 1894 first variation. If anyone has information that you want to contribute, please get in touch with me for the details.

bert

you may be very happy to find out that at the recent Seattle Gun Buy back thing put on by the Seattle Police and the Mayors office. One of the many firearms saved from the smelter. Buy gun collectors standing on the street corners offering to buy firearms for cash prior to being turned in for a gift card.

One was a c1894 Model 1894 Carbine (No details) One of the other ones the guys rescued was a later model 1886 rifle.

Between just those two guys they managed to save almost 25 firearms. Mostly rifles but a couple older revolvers.

Bert,
My thanks to you for the excellent and informative article on the Model 64.
A question: What’s the procedure and format for submitting M 1894,
M 94 and M 64 Winchesters to your serial number base?
Thanks.
