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.

The original posters model 94 had a serial number of 1,330,045 and a manufacture date of April 1942.

I have a model 94 carbine in 30 WCF with a serial number of 1,330,012, would I be correct to assume the same manufacture date for mine?

Hello,

I inherited what I believe is a model 94 30 W.C.F from my dad’s late uncle who was a WW1 vet.  He was long gone when I was born.  I have not seen other examples of serial numbers beginning with letters, but it appears mine is LL6386.  I was wondering if I am interpreting this incorrectly and was hoping to know how old it is.  This is a great piece of history and very sentimental.  I am unable to attach pictures, likely because I’m a guest, but I do have them.

 

Thank you,

Steve

Hello Steve,

The first two digits of the serial number on your Model 1894 may appear to be “LL” but they are in reality “11”, making is “116386 and manufactured in June 1901.

1968.  I am not very familiar with all of the many different variations that were produced in the post-1963 years, but I suspect that you have a Model 94 Classic.
