I have the chance to purchase a 1928 94/95 Hybrid. These things are so rare and I have no idea of the value. Would anyone out there have any idea on the value of this gun? It has a 22″ barrel and a pinned front sight. The barrel has been reblued. Any help would be appreciated.

  Thank you

Welcome Brian! To help us answer your question please post several clear pics of the rifle including the sights along with barrel, tang and other stampings. A complete serial number is necessary as well. The value may have taken a big hit when the barrel was reblued. We have a few bona fide 94/95 experts around here (I’m NOT one of them!) and hopefully they will be able to answer your question after viewing your pics.

Brian,

The 94/95 Hybrid you are looking at purchasing is a Type-4 variation.  Of the (78) total 94/95 Hybrids I have documented in the survey, just (15) of them are the Type-4 variation, which does make it a relatively rare Model 94.

Please provide the S/N on the Carbine you are looking, and if possible, several clear detailed pictures of it, most importantly, the factory markings on the barrel.

RARE WINCHESTER 1894 SRC 1895 VARIANT for sale (gunsinternational.com)

Here is a 94/95 Hybrid that is for sale. Reblued would hurt value, but still a pretty hard to find gun.

That is a Type-1 variation (the most common), and it is priced too high (in my opinion).

But Mike, posting the “complete serial number” would fling wide open the door to the Dark Web!  What nefarious crimes could be done with that number, it’s frightening to contemplate.  Everybody knows that.

Bert, What is the value of the 94/95 listed on Guns International ? Are there any recent sales available to set a price? This one is on Gunbroker right now WINCHESTER MODEL 94/95 HYBRID 30-30 – Lever Action Rifles at GunBroker.com : 935020874

Clarence,

The complete serial number for this specimen is already included in the seller’s pictures. Methinks the serial number of a 1928 Winchester would be of little interest on the “dark” web.

As a added comment, I have been the “keeper” of the 94/95 hybrid survey since Art Gogan passed.

Those are not easily answered questions.  That stated, a Type-1 94/95 hybrid in that condition is worth approximately 200% of a standard 1928 production Model 94 Carbine is the same condition.

I have managed to gather 3 of the 4 types of these model 94/95 carbines for my collection and am actively looking for the fourth (the 22-inch variation with the dovetailed front sight).  The top one (serial# 1032618) is featured on page 103 in Renneberg’s Winchester Model 94 book.  The middle one (serial# 1025460) is pictured in the Spring 2021 WACA magazine (link below) and also in the Winchester Model 1895 book on pages 418-419.  If anyone knows the whereabouts of the fourth variation, please let me know.

Wow – this is one bad looking carbine.  That reblue job is awful.  I’ve always wanted one of these but I couldn’t stand to look at this one if I owned it.

I just recently added it to the survey.  

Based on the document that was recently discovered at the McCracken Research Library indicting that a total of 1,303 Model 94/95 hybrids were assembled in the year 1928, I created the extrapolation table below;

94/95 Hybrid Variation Barrel length Front Sight Qty. Surveyed % Total Quantity
Type-1 20″ Dovetail 39 3.55% 1,100
Type-2 20″ Pinned 20 1.82%
Type-3 22″ Dovetail 4 1.97% 203
Type-4 22″ Pinned 16 7.88%
           
Total     79 6.06% 1,303

I agree.  That purple barrel is not pleasant to look at.  It’s a shame that someone felt the need to reblue a pretty rare gun.  I would much prefer well-used but original.
