is it just me being overly critical or is there a whole lot wrong with this thing? Im no expert I dont have all of the years and cut-offs memorized but seems like there are two or three different guns here.

The butt stock is at least 10-years older than the rest of the gun.  The seller description of the gun is almost 100% fabricated.

My thoughts on the buttstock. What about the slicked off tang, not a single mark to speak of, ground off?or was this something that Winchester did for a time? I cant think of another one from this era.

Winchester stopped marking the upper tangs at the same time production was temporarily halted to support WW II efforts (August 1942). None of the post WW II production Model 94 Carbines or the Model 64 Rifles were marked on the upper tang.

Extra holes in the receiver? When did that happen? I don't think my 1948 Flatband has receiver holes. Looks refinished to me. Buggered tang screw? I think I would pass.  Big Larry

You all give me pause to realize how little I really know about the myriad fine points concerning Winchester levers. But also, fully to appreciate how much I do enjoy your 'clinical dissections' and conclusions. I ever marvel at and appreciate the expertise here! Just a momentary tribute to a really great group here!

The momentary aside... My best 'fraud protection' in the situation of my small number of Winchester levers, the eighties era in which I purchased most and, bargain seeker, the typically small money paid. Such guns as then billed as "beauties/rarities", or the like, comparable price tags not on my radar! My own one perhaps rarity achieved of this bunch, a 94/95 carbine, as neither I nor the sporting goods store seller, realized at all what it was. Just looking "different/neat" to me and the two hundred fifty or so bucks, not too much a gouge.
Just a personal...
My take

I never noticed before, I never payed attention to that. I have only one 94 post WWII and I just never studied it. Was given to me by a freind of mine. Saddle rings are my main attention. I cannot I believe i didn't know this. Thanks for that!

Receiver looks nice, maybe too nice. No bids so looks like no one else is going for it. Price a little high for an original gun, out of the question for a Frankenchester.
