I was fortunate enough to take possession of my fathers 1894 today adding it to my lever gun collection. He passed away in 2000 and my Brother was hanging onto it. It was originally my Grandfathers deer rifle that he purchased new sometime in the late 30s and gave it to my dad in 1961. The Winchester site says DOM is 1938. Im curious if anyone would know what month? Thanks in advance. 

BTW it is an eastern carbine in 30 W.C.F.

I’m guessing June but the complete serial number will likely result in something more accurate than my (no S)WAG.

Model 94 SN 1172208 has an SNA of April 14, 1938. No other information is available from CFM. June was the best I could do at 2:30 this morning. 😉

I just bought a “project” Model 94. Serial number 88763. It is in rough shape and all I can tell you is it has a 26″ octagon barrel. Any other info would be greatly appreciated

I suggest that you contact the Cody Firearms Museum records office and obtain a factory letter for it.

Hello Bert, thank you for these posts. It has been an enjoyable read!

I own 1894 #200077 in 38-55 with the 26” Octagon Barrel and full length magazine tube.  I see conflicting dates, but is sounds as though 1903 is accurate. Could you please confirm for me?

 

Thank you once again!

Your Flat-band Carbine was manufactured in June 1947.
