Yes, I was wondering if some parts were not interchangable with a standard model. Thus making you order parts from Sears. Don

That’s a very good question, for other JC higgins I have (single shot 22 bolt action), there’s a few parts interchange charts that show you the equivalent part from the “true” manufacturer so I know some parts will work….if I remember correctly from the Mod 94 variants the appearance parts look different than anything Winchester put out…. iirc the front sight, forend wood/endcap and stuff look different,but I bet could be replaced with any 94 part with the proper fitting.

A number of years ago I bought a Panasonic TV from Sears and Roebuck. 86Win said

A number of yrs?  Sticker on the back of my Panasonic TV is marked “1996” & I’ll never replace it as long as it continues working perfectly.

So Winchester would produce a lesser quality gun for Sears and thus use Sears branding? Don

Pretty common tactic among some (not all) store brand stuff…the department stores wanted their own discount versions of stuff, not too different from store brands today…I imagine there was some cost cutting on the Sears stuff, although not too major…that front sight looks like one of them! Montgomery Ward did the same thing with several home and electronic items.

Disclaimer, I have yet to take one all the way apart and do any real comparisons.

If it ain’t broke, I don’t fix it.  Like my Radio Shack Trimline wall-phone I bought 40+ yrs ago (about $10) after it became impossible to keep using my dial phone–which is still plugged in because the real bell it has is so much louder than the Trimline.

Yes, and they also made the “Ranger” series Model 94 for Walmart and K-Mart.
