Standard factors for accurately describing a firearm's condition can be found here: photos, both close-ups of details and overall views, would be of immense help to us for estimating value. The 16", .44 Mag (aka: Trapper) Model 94AE was introduced in 1986, well before your SN - so the best you could do would be to narrow down the period: 94AE- no safety (1983-92), 94AE-CBS(1992-2003), 94AE-tang safety(2003-06).
I have a winchester model 94ae 44 rem mag ranger with 16" barrel NIB no defects at all.
Following WW II, Winchester averaged approximately 100,000 Model 94s per year from 1946 - 1953, then about 55,000 per year through 1963. After being blued, the receivers were sent into the Assembly Room (in bins) and were then assembled into complete firearms in complete random order. The stock is a pistol grip stock, but the butt is straight like a shotgun type stock.
Production ratios for the first 353,999 Model 1894s made: 4:5 (78.19%) were Rifles (276,780) 1:5 (21.20%) were Saddle Ring Carbines (75,075) 1:2 (45.92%) was a 30 W. Winchester's production of the Model 94 averaged about 35,000 units per year for the next (7) years (1936-1942 inclusive), and once again, Madis’ published numbers diverge from the PRSRB records. For those who are interested in adding your Model 1894 to my database, please get in touch with me at [email protected], Winchester did not assemble any of the many different models in serial number order.
The PRSRB records end at serial number 1,352,066, which is listed as the last Model 94 serial number recorded on December 29th of 1945. When the receivers were serialized and polished, they went into large bins and were sent to the finishing room (were they were blued).
Yours is one of the redos and is therfore less valuable than a "pre '64." This is the easiest way to check if one's Winchester 94 is a pre-64 or a post-64: The pre-64 will have a screw head visible in the bottom of the forward end of the lower lever link; the post-64 will not. 1922 - No gun can be evaluated w/o a full description of it's factory features and the remaining % of original factory finish on wood/metal, including any known defects like rust, cracks, dents, and it's mechanical operating condition.
It could be a rusted $50 tomato stake Standard Carbine, or a $10-20,000 Special Order Deluxe Rifle in pristine condition - you didn't say. "Very good condition" is too nebulous a term to assign a value to a firearm. Thanks There are no SN records for the Model 94AE, since the Winchester records were turned over to BATF with the closing of the Winchester plant in New Haven, CT in 2006, and they aren't talkin'.
The 65 models all start with 279 and the 64 models were all below 2,700,000. I am a newbie to the forum so any help is wonderful.
I am thinking of trading the rifle for a 270 or 308 but want to verify its value.
