Love mine, got it for 90 dollars in sorry shape in .30-30. Stripped all the rust, cleaned it up, gave the receiver a nice patina. She's a shooter for a beater rifle I bought as a project!

Another .30 WCF Model 94 from 1941. Belonged to an uncle who sold it to me in 1961 for fifteen bucks. That was my only hunting rifle until 1975 when I bought a nice used Model 70 in .30-06. I still have them both.

I remember when K Mart would put the 94 on sale every deer season. Forget the price but it wasn't much.

My first firearm at age 13 in 1975 was a 9422. Several hundred of the best hours of my life have been spent shooting it - still one of my prized possessions. You can imagine what it was like for me to graduate from an air rifle to the '94 -heaven!

At that age I had no idea what a diamond in the rough this model was as far as being decently machined in the age of stamping etc. I was recently surprised to note the prices these fetch now and it made me briefly cringe over all the hard wear on mine but then I remembered how it came by every ding honestly so no regrets.

I also have a Marlin 1894 in .44 mag which I like a lot, but not like the 9422. The .44 feels more to me like an overgrown Red Ryder :Q

I'm more of a bolt action fan than lever action fan when it comes to high
power rifles. I do have one pre 64 30-30 model 94 however that I bought
from a co worker twenty some years ago. It is in near mint condition so
it has a permanent home. The 94 is a classic rifle that is a pleasure to
just get out and handle once in a while.

I shoot lead bullets out of my 30-30. Right now it is sighted in for a light load with a plain base 150 grain bullet. A few years back I won a 200 yard steel plate buffalo shoot with it and that was against people shooting factory ammo in any caliber. No restrictions.

had use of an early century 94 in .32 WS as a teenager, the action was butter, and was highly accurate at a hundred yards.
Of every weapon I have handled since, that's the one I'd most like to own now.

I have one 94 from 1966 that was used by a mounted Police Dept near me. Also have a 9422, best .22 I own. Here's the 94, you can see the CHP stamped on the receiver for Cleveland Heights Police.

While my favorites are single shot from the late 19th,I must admit that the model 94 Winchester holds a special spot in my ticker.I have owned or still own one or more in 32-40,38-55,22lr and of course,many in 30-30.
I shoot 99% lead bullets and keep them(after a little work)easily within 2 1/2'' at 100yds with a few exeptions at 2''.
These 94 are a living testimony of that great genius,John M.Browning certainly the greatest brains when it came to create new mechanical concepts for firing a cartridge!

My dad used the '94 in 30-30 for years. I was born in '57 and he had it probably early '50s/late'40s after he returned from the So. Pacific. I would shoot it once in a while when I was young. He retired it for a 30-06, I believe it was the model 70 that is in another post. I'll be getting that 94 next time my sister & BIL come up from Texas. I recently acquired a Sears Ted Williams model 100 30-30 from my other sister & BIL. The wood needs refinished a little to spruce it up. I haven't shot it yet but it does load & cycle as it should. Summer's coming so I should have it presentable-looking and will take it out & check the accuracy, etc. I'll post pics when I get my phone to work right again. (Enter my 19 year-old daughter!)

I have my Dadís in 30-30. I think he hunted with it just a few times. He was more a bird hunter with his Browning Sweet 16.

A 1941 Winchester 94 carbine in .32 Winchester Special lives here. I was tickled with its accuracy performance and some really rewarding groups when I was verifying its sights at 100 yards from off the bench rest before deer season a couple years back.

Have only had one 94 which was loaned to me for a while by my brother. He found it is a burned out house. It was in bad shape. Charred wood. Metal pitted. But, the bore was nice. Put a Bishop buttstock on it. It worked fine. Off hand groups were never more than 2.5 inches at 50 paces in the backyard. Never fitted a forearm. Cold blued it. Nice little rifle. I'd have liked to kept it. Wish my brother hadn't let it go. Oh well. Sincerely. bruce.
