MVC-001F.JPGImage EnlargerI was at an auction this past weekend, and they had 6 Winchesters. Most went for more money than I had to spend, but I did get this ’94 rifle for 1100.00. Don’t know how good of deal that was, but I like the gun. It shows good, honest wear, and the bore cleaned-up better than expected. Serial# is 260249, and shows a date here as 1905. I think it was a special order gun. If I could just find some ammo for it, I will be happy.

Nice rifle. 32-40 is around at shows.

No reason to get angered after 23 hours and no reply. 

Enjoy your new rifle. Should be accurate.

NIce looking rifle.  Looks to be a pretty honest gun from the photo.  I owned one just like it in the same caliber and configuration years ago, about the same condition.  I had taken it in on trade for something at one time or another.  The guy who owned and made the trade used it for competition shooting.  I sold it a year or two ago to a gentleman from England for a little more than you paid for yours.  He told me they view 32-40 as an obsolete cartridge there and it was easier to import as such. 

32-40 ammo can be a bit pricey depending on what you find and what kind of deal you can cut.  If you have the capability, loading your own cartridges will be a lot more satisfying and with better results  if you intend to shoot it a lot.  If not, a couple boxes of ammo from a show will suffice.

Hi Richard, Nice gun in a good configuration IMO. As far as replies go, please remember that this is summer time and things get pretty slow on these forums and the internet in general this time of year. People are really busy and just don’t take the time for it. Stick around…there are huge benefits belonging here. Peter

Guess I should have looked closer, this product has been discontinued by Midway.  May look around elsewhere.

Henry, you should have described what you have for sale a little better and you may have gotten some bites.  It sounds like you have collector boxes not shooter ammo.  Pictures would have helped too.  Most shooter ammo goes for $40 to $80 when you can find it.  I don’t know why Winchester has not made some 32-40 or 38-55 for some time now?

Yea I guess Your right. They’re really not “for sale” any way Ijust thought I would make some available to someone who needed some, but it woujd be a shame to shoot em. I’m not real handy with the computer , pics and stuff, I just don’t have the damn patients.

Hello Bill, you sound like you have some experience with these 32-40 1894 model Wins.

I have one with an octagon barrel and a serial no. 190749…….what does that tell me? How do I find out the manufacture date?

The rifle is in decent shape and I have 180 grain round point ammo from Ventura Heritage that runs $62.03 20 rounds per box shipped, but bought 2 boxes and went to $106.30 shipped for those in need of shooting ammo.

Thanks for your time

Chet

Chet,

First, your rifle information sought. Go to the Homepage of this website, and click on ” When Was Your Winchester Made “

Enter your model number and serial number and you will get a correct date directly from Winchester records held in the Cody Firearms Museum. These numbers are correct, and indisputable compared other websites.

Second, use the website provided previously, and shop shows. Usually $40 to $60, and then the hopeful sellers above that. Usually $40 can be done. Check ” Ammoseek.com ” and they may show up from time to time. Manufacturers run batches during the year a few times.

Good Luck,

I reload for all my older Winchester odd calibers, including a 94 saddle ring carbine 32-40 serial 993678. I think it was made in 1922.

August 1926.  Accordingly, it should have a Nickel Steel barrel.
