Hi. WTB a trapper.  I’m looking for a Winchester Trapper 1894 30WCF 30-30. I don’t mind a shooter in well used condition. I would prefer one under 16” and that is preapproved on the ATF list but I would open to anything. Thanks for the help!

Based on my current survey numbers, your odds are greatest finding a 15-inch Trapper. Of the (828) Trappers I have documented this far, (613) of them have a 15-inch barrel. Be prepared to pay a steep price for one!

There’s a couple 1894 trappers for sale out there, but are on quite opposite ends of the spectrum regarding price and condition.  Pretty slim pickins otherwise.

That leaves only 215 that are 12”/14”/16”/18”. I would’ve thought there were more 16” trappers than 15”. Good to know.

Here’s a 15″ Model 94 that was just listed on Leroy Merz’s website.  Far from a high condition piece, but really not bad for a trapper.  I think the price is rather reasonable as well.  I don’t think this one will last long at that price.  I’ve seen others in lesser condition sell for more money.

About a year ago, I paid close to double the price of the Merz gun:

Sale pending–knew it wouldn’t last long.  If I had the extra money, I would have bought it…

Don,

I saw that this morning too, and thought not a bad price for a trapper.  You’re right, didn’t last long.
