General Specs: Winchester, Year 1949 , .32 W.S., 6lb 5oz, LOP 13 1/16"
Serial Number: 1625602
The Winchester Model 94 succeeded the famous Winchester Model 1894, the first lever rifle able to fire the high-pressure smokeless powder that came with the .30 WCF, also known as the .30-30 caliber. The Model 94 is the same rifle as the Model 1894 with a nomenclature change that occurred in 1920. The Winchester M1894 comes from the era when cowboys still road high in their saddles throughout the West, armed with Colts and Winchesters, drifting with the cattle while real danger still existed from rogue Indians and highway robbers.
This rifle, sn1625602 built in 1949, is a desirable pre-64 Winchester in remarkable condition with 99% barrel blue, 99% receiver blue with no flaking, and nice factory finish remaining on the wood. It is considered an Eastern Carbine, which is the same as a Saddle Ring Carbine without the saddle ring. Most pre-’64 rifles have been used hard. Even if cared for they will show bluing loss on the barrel, receiver, lever, and loading gate. The wood gets dinged up and scratched from traversing thick woods and bouncing in pick-up trucks, so when you find a 72-year old Winchester Model 94 in high original condition it is something to take note of. This is an opportunity to own a factory original Winchester 94 in .32 Winchester Special caliber that is the most popular deer hunting rifle ever produced, with over 7 million rifles having left the factory overall.
The .32 Winchester Special is a superior cartridge when compared to the .30-30, as it has more powder capacity, pushes bullets faster, and is known to be a more accurate round. A few minutes of research will bear this out. The rifles made after 1964 are not the same rifle and do not carry the same values, as Winchester made changes in the post-1964 rifles to be able to build them cheaper. The value is in the minty, high-condition pre-1964 rifles. This rifle is in superb mechanical condition with an excellent, mirror shiny bore and unaltered in any way since leaving the factory. There are a few light handling marks in the wood. There are no extra holes where an after-market sight may have been mounted. The Winchester Model 94 is perfect for deer hunting in the wooded areas throughout the country and anywhere a compact rifle with a 20 barrel is warranted. Weighing just 6 1/16lbs., she is balanced to perfection, making for a quick, accurate rifle. Don’t miss out on your opportunity. Thanks for looking!
