 I am looking at a Winchester 94AE.  The serial number is 6537***.  Could someone tell me the age of the is rifle?  Any issues with rifles manufactured in the time frame of the serial number?   What is a good price for this rifle rated as very good condition?

Thank you.

Your Model 94AE was manufactured sometime after the year 2002, and before March of 2006 (when the U.S. Repeating Arms Company shutdown the New Haven factory for good). The biggest issue with the late production Model 94AE is the fact that they have a tang safety (an ugly departure from the original design patented by John M. Browning), and as of this time, they have no collector interest. In “Very Good” condition, it is a $250 gun, though there are lots of people asking $350 – $450 for them.

Bert,

My serial number is 64200XX would it fall in that era as well?

Ray,

Yes it does.  It was manufactured sometime after June 2000.

Most likely early 1993. Does it have the Cross-bolt safety?

I have a Winchester Model 94Ae in caliber 44 Remington Magnum  S/N 6064681.  I was wondering what the date of manufacture was and what the current value is.

Exact dates of manufacture cannot be determined for any of the U.S. Repeating Arms Company (U.S.R.A.Co.) production Model 94s.  That stated, S/N 6064681 is estimated to have been manufactured in 1993.  Does it have the Cross-bolt safety?

What is the graded condition of your 94AE ?  Cross-bolt or Tang safety?  Pictures?

I have a Trapper model 94AE in 30-30 with serial number 5630977. I bought it right after I graduated from high school. It was used but just barely. Can I get an approximate date on this one? Thanks.

I had a very similar Trapper, based on the posts above I’d guess 92 0r 93. Neat gun and starting to see some limited collector interest.

How about a 5265738?  The fella who owns it thought 1998, but I’m thinking from what I’m seeing that’s not right.

It’s a 20 inch rifle, 30-30.  He said no safeties other than the original half cock.

Thanks

You are correct, it is 14-years older than 1998.  Based on the information I have, it was manufactured in 1984.

Hello Sir Bert, I acquired a Model 94AE serial 6167577, made in New H. Conn. it’s in pretty good shape with just a couple dings on the stock and a repair where the sling mount is attached to the buttstock, the metal finish is really nice, it has the checkered pistol grip stock and it has the cross bolt safety, I would appreciate anymore information about it, year or years of manufacture, reliability, bad and good points etc.

Thank you Sir

with kind regards…

The S/N indicates that it was manufactured in the year 1994. I have no experience or knowledge concerning the reliability or the bad and good points of the late production Model 94s.

Thank you Bert, any guesstimates on the value? I did forget to mention it’s a 30-30…

Thanks!
