    I have some questions about some guns I just inherited from a family member. I have no idea about them and thought I'd ask if anyone here did.
    Winchester Model 94-30 WCF (Is this a 30-30?)
    Wards Western Field .20 Ga Repeater (does anyone know anything about this?)
    .20 Ga Taiyo Juki (Japanese?)
    Thanks in advance for any help!

    The Winchester 1894 is a fairly old one. How many digits in the serial number? I wouldn't be surprised if there were only five, or even fewer.

    The Wards Western Field was probably made by Winchester.

    The other one? Never heard of it, but Taiyo is Japanese for something...

    The Winchester has seven digits... starting with 1517xxx. Thanks for your input!

    Winchester web site have a source to date Win94's by S/N?

    The Wards shotgun was probably quite inexpensive to begin with and has little collector value...but likely is a fine shooter.

    Only reference I could find to the Japanese gun is a (unanswered) question from another board
