My best guess is August or September 1947.  If you ant to know the exact date, contact Pauline Muerrle – Pauline Muerrle | Winchester Authentication

Your Model 94 Flat-band as most likely manufactured in August of 1947.

With the exception of serial numbers 1 – 7999, I am not surveying any of the Model 1894s that can be lettered (s/n’s 1 – 353999) as they were surveyed & documented in the ARMAX Vol 5 document published by the CFM records office.  My goal is to document as many of the non-letterable pre-1964 production Model 1894/94s to include all of the Model 55 rifles, and the Model 64 rifles that were included in the Model 94 serial number range (354000 – 2600011).  As of this morning (after adding several more new guns to the list), my research survey now contains 29,594 documented serial numbers which is just 1.31% of the total 2,258,014 available serial numbers.  When I started the survey (back in early 2005), my goal was to eventually document 5% of the total, but based on my current progress, I suspect that reaching the 3% mark will be a substantial achievement.  I am also surveying all Model 1894 S/Ns in the 1 – 7999 range in an attempt to determine the estimated number of First Variation Model 1894s manufactured.  Thus far I have documented 525 of the 7,999, with 254 confirmed First Models so far.

I hope I can add another to your survey.  I inherited # 1391122 from my father.  30-30 carbine with no saddle ring.  round barrel that looks to be 19.5 inches long.  I believe it to be made in 1946.  Does this help?  any other questions let me know.  Rgds

May 1948.  Does it have a slotted or a smooth magazine tube end cap?

You are correct… it is a 1946 production Carbine (approximately October).  The barrel is actually 20-inches long.

Good morning all

 Went to a gun show last week-end and saw a 94 Winchester with a flat band. It looked too good to be true so I walked on past. Should I have considered buying it? Don

You most certainly should have stopped and looked at it closer.

Hello Justin,

No it was not manufactured in the year 1947.  Based on recently obtained information that I have, it was serialized in late January or early February 1948.

Which caliber is it?

Hello Bert,

Thank you so much for your help to all of us seeking info.  I too have a serial number for you. I have read back and found a number very close to mine so I know that I’m in the 1967 range.  Could you help me to narrow it down?  My number is 3,029,473.

 

I inherited this piece form an Uncle and don’t know much about it at all. 

 

What do you think about firing this rifle?  Of course it all depends on the condition of my particular 94. It’s close to 60 years old! This topic might be out of the scope of what you are doing here but I was just curious to get your opinion and perhaps the opinion of other here.

 

Thank you again,

Justin Walsh

Hello Justin,

Based on the information I have, your Model 94 was manufactured very early in the year 1967. As long as it is in sound mechanical condition, there is no reason why you cannot take it out for a shooting session.
