Hey all,

First post on the forum. I frequent ar15.com and the akfiles though. While most of my firearms are surplus or geared towards pig hunting at night, I’ve always wanted a Winchester 94. I was scrolling armslist and found this one for $400 which I just couldn’t pass up. It is in absolute pristine condition as the other original owner was the father of the guy I bought it from. I know little about Winchester rifles and would appreciate any information y’all can provide. From my research I know that it’s a buffalo bill commentators with a 26” octagonal barrel.

There Were 112923 Buffalo Bill Commemoratives , 26″ rifles and 20″ carbines, built in 1968, with the first 300 being cased presentation guns. Looking at You’re pictures it looks as though the receiver has been refinished. It should be black chrome steel. The fore end cap, butt plate, saddle ring, hammer, trigger and loading gate are nickel plated. To be considered “pristine” condition they should be new, and other than factory, unfired, in the original graphic box with all the paperwork etc. the current going price for a complete Buffalo Bill seems to be in the $700.00 to $800.00 range. So you probably paid on the money for a “shooter”. Now saying that, being a 1968 manufacture, these were not up to pre 1964 quality standards for Winchester and sometimes the internals would rattle or malfunction. Anyway James good luck with it and don’t judge all Winchesters by this one gun. If You have access to Tom Trollard’s book Winchester Commemoratives” look it up. Happy to provide any assistance possible.
