Justin,

The NFA of 1934 sealed the fate for the Winchester Model 94 Trapper production. Trapper production was relatively robust up to 1930, and then it slowed down during the early years of The Great Depression. In my ongoing survey of the Model 1894/94, I have documented (415) of them that were manufactured in the 354000 – 1343183 serial number range, and of that number just (8) of them (all 16-inch Trappers) were manufactured after the year 1933. The highest verified Trapper I have documented is S/N 1330740 (April 1942) and it is a 30 WCF with a 16-inch barrel.
