Bert, the all-knowing, I was just gifted my grandmother’s M94 30 W.C.F., SN 1553225. Based on your other replies, I’m guessing a manufacture date in the mid-40’s. How are my deductive skills?

Thanks!

Bert, I recently purchased an M94 32 W.S. The serial number is 1310217. The best I can figure is it is early 1940’s. Can you help me with a more exact date it was made? Thank you.

December 1941.  The Cody Firearms Museum can provide you with exact date if you desire for a nominal fee.

Bert, aka Winchester Wizard! 

I have 2 model 94’s both chambered in 30-30. Serial number 1072102 I believe was made in 1931? If that is correct do you know how many were produced that year? It has a flip up ladder site, round barrel and no saddle ring. The second one I have is 1005439. That puts it around 1927? That one has ladder site and saddle ring. 
Thank you for your help

S/N 1072102 is a late production “Eastern” Carbine manufactured in late January 1931. The total production for the year 1931 was 8,269 which included an unknown number of Model 55 rifles.

S/N 1005439 was manufactured in August 1927.

Hi Bert.

One of my brothers here in the UK, has an 1894 with a serial number something like 47… definitely under 100 anyway. It’s a long time since I saw the rifle but it’s a saddle ring carbine I think. It’s in poor shape generally although the action cycles nicely and it doesn’t feel sloppy or loose. My brother hasn’t fired it. The mystery to me is that it’s in 30wcf, stamped on the barrel. 

I assume this rifle must have been one of the very first 30wcf examples or was maybe rechambered/barreled later on… ??

Any thoughts on this?

Regards, Richard

Hello Richard,

With the actual serial number, the original configuration can be determined. The first Model 1894 (by serial number) originally chambered for the 30 WCF was 846.

Bert,

I stumbled across this forum while trying to do research on the value (for insurance purposes) of a Winchester 30 WCF my grandfather gave me when I was young. The serial number is 256675.  My research says manufactured around 1904. It has a broken stock at the neck (horse injury) but it is still attached.  If I replaced this stock, do you know if it would decrease the value?  It is in fairly good condition with some pitting and could use a little TLC.

February 1905 is the correct date of manufacture. Replacing the broken stock is not going to decrease the value… that happened when the stock was broken.

Thanks so much. I’ll find out what the actual serial number is and post again. Very grateful
