Hello,

You need to post the entire serial number before an accurate answer can be given.

No idea... your Model 94AE is not a true Winchester... instead, it was manufactured by the U.S. Repeating Arms Co., most likely in the latter part of the 1990s.

Dave,

It is the stigma of when it was made that drives the value down. The post-1963 production Model 94s are not considered "collectable" by any of the collector groups. The manufacturing process that was used to make them was flawed, and the overall quality of the gun was severely lacking in comparison to the pre-1964 guns.

Hello Boyd,

Your Model 94 Carbine was manufactured in 1946. Based on my research, it should be a "Flat-band" variation. You did not mention which caliber it is, and that will make a difference to the value.

Can you post several clear close-up pictures of the receiver frame and the proof mark stamp on the top of the frame ring?

Hey Bert
Thanks for the research- its a 30-30 caliber and we were led to believe it was somewhat older than war time era, however it still a beautiful machine.

Somebody led you astray on the date of manufacture. If it is truly in "Excellent" graded condition, the value is in the $800 - $900 range.

Bert,

Mine has an odd number: It looks like a backwards 1 or a L. So the number is either LL6667 or 116667. Any idea on the manufacture date?

Mike,

I need to see pictures of the gun before I can assess it. All too frequently those old guns that are in "very good condition" have been refinished.

Dale,

I misread the serial number you gave, and I mistakenly assumed that it was a 7-digit number because you called it a "94 30-30".

Serial number 375059 is a 1907 vintage Model 1894, and it was originally marked "30 W.C.F."
