I am looking at a Winchester 94 on a on line auction in Canada. The gun is stated as a Winchester 94 in 44 WCF

According to the serial number in was made in 1915. Any searching I have done tells me that Winchester never produced that gun in that caliber at that time. 
Anyone with any thoughts please replay. The pictures of the gun show in as a 1894 in 44WCF with the serial number

You are correct in that Winchester never manufactured a Model 1894 chambered for the 44 WCF cartridge.  Winchester did in the 1960s manufacture Model 94 Carbines in 44-40 for the Canadian and Australian markets.  What is the serial number on the gun in question?  Can you post a link to the auction site & listing?

The carbine in the auction is a 1892 SRC. They named it wrong.

Seems to be a common problem. There is a Winchester 92 for sale in Texas that is listed as a 30-30. They show an info tag that says model 94 30-30 as proof. Rifle is definitely a 92. I argued they need to correct the ad but no change. It has not sold. Some people are just clueless.
