    Winchester 94 is my favorite rifle (and so is the M1 Garand).

    I love the .30-30 round, it's perfect for what it does. There's a lot of good, old-time feeling in this combo. :)

    I just got one fairly recently, it was made in 1979. It's a good gun and a great shooter. It's in less-than-great condition though, with about 5% of it's blueing left, and with a canted barrel that I still need to fix, but I still like it.

    My dad's was made around the same time, but is in much better condition. His is the reason I own mine, and the reason I'll own a few more before I'm done. :)

    My father has one that was made pre 1930 sometime. Nice rifle, though I never shot it much. Too bad they don't make 'em anymore.

    I prefer the Winchester '94 over the marlin for aesthetic reasons (I like the straight grip stock on this rifles for some reason), but I'll probably end up getting a 336 in the near future, simply because they don't make the '94 anymore, except for the Marlins which aren't chambered in .30-30.

    I did a few deer drives this weekend that were very long(a few miles at least)and it never tired me out.I love the lightweight and easy handling of the 94.I bought my Winchester 94ae four years ago and LOVE IT..I wish they never stop making them..I''ve seen a few in pawn shops at a higher price before they stopped making them,but I would pay the higher price than buying a Marlin new,but that's just me..I carried a few Marlins through the woods and they tired my arms out..

    Got one made in '57 and shoots like a dream. Wouldn't trade it for the world.

    my 1972 is exactly what I was hoping for when I got her a few years ago...it is my birth-year rifle and as such will never leave my collection. :)


    I got it for the princly sum of 150 dollars and she shoots much better than that...regardless of being "post-64"

    Winchester Trapper 94 in .44mag/.44sp. 16" barrel. Handy, fun gun. Reliable, handles really well.

    Like Working Man, I bought a newer style one before they quit making them. At the time when I bought it (several years ago), the store had a whole bunch of 94's in various calibers and lengths.

    too bad they are discontinued.

    Winny Trapper in .357 -- it's a range and HD gun for me. It's my only centerfire "long gun" (really stretching that term), if you don't count a converted T/C carbine in .44 magnum (16" barrel).

    I live deep in the 'burbs, so I really don't feel the need to be able to reach out beyond the length of my cul-de-sac... :)

    Here's mine: http://www.pixagogo.com/7789414121 Click on a pic to make it bigger, click on original at the top to really blow it up. It's a '75 model in 30-30. The other guns are a '69 Golden Spike in 30-30 and the Puma in 357. I've been working on a cheap, low power plinking load for the '75 model. It's a hoot to shoot but my accuracy with the loads are a little less than desired. I'm still working on it.

    I bought one in 45 LC several years ago from a gentleman who wanted to get into cowboy shooting. He got transferred and decided to sell it before he fired the first shot. I haven't shot it to this day, but the urge is about to get the best of me. I just can't stand a gun I can't use.

    In the past, I've owned many Winchester model 94's; including one NIB
    "Buffalo Bill Commerative"~! Many Winchester model 94 "Ranger's" as
    sold by the old Woolco, K-Mart, and Wally World convenience stores.
    I don't own any model 94's now, but I have access to many (including
    a few commeratives) that are "FOR SALE"~! ;) :D

    I have one bought new by my grandfather in the late 40's chambered in .32 WS. I also have one I just picked up at the last gun show made in 1976, it's chambered in .30-30. I have many more expensive, fancy, and tacticool rifles in my collection but the Winny's are my favorite.

    .44 trapper- great fun and a good deep woods gun for deer hunting.
    New shooters love to shoot a "cowboy" gun and with .44 special light reloads you can shoot it all day. safe, simple action even if mine doesn't have the unneccessary crossbolt safety.

    count me in

    I have one in thudy-thudy. It was a gift from gramps and has accounted for a few nice bucks that I took as a youngster with gramps by my side. I dont shoot it much any more but it will always hold a place in my safe.

    I had one of the bad ones. Shot great, but had a crappy freckled finish and the action felt sloppy, and I'm real anal about the way my guns look and function. I could handle a pre '64 with a well worn finish, but those "cast iron" receivers made in the '70's just looked bad with age. I compared it to a pre '64 at a gun show and I could feel a real difference in the action. If the opportunity ever comes up to own a pre '64, I'll jump on it.
