    wanted one since i watched westerns as a kid and finally got the chance to buy one a few years ago. picked up an early 80's Ranger model with no safeties and a scope for $190. ditched the scope and now i have my favorite rifle. in my opinion, this rifle is one of the quintessential symbols of Americana.

    I also got a Big Bore 94 when they first came out... mine is in .375 Win.

    The .307 looked good too. :)

    I have one from the 40s. It loves the new Hornady Leverevolution ammo. I can squeeze >2" groups at a 100 yds with the iron sights!

    Mine is a bit of a frankenstein...wears teflon coating and a Williams peep sight. But the hogs don't know it's an ugly rifle...

    Couple a oldsters that were my Pa's, a couple o newbies I picked up along w/ 2 trapper lengths. A couple of the '66 Centennial models, 1 long, 1 short. (My bling knows no bounds). Octagonal barrels, round, 26", 20" 16". Regular loops, big honkin loops. Even got one (one of the later AE models) wearing optics.

    The old ones got no safety 'cept the half cock, new ones got the rebound hammer thingie and got one with the Marlin-like go/no-go hammer lock button. Was gonna pick up one of their last days models (who knew?) with the tang mounted slide safety thingie just to try and round out the collection in regards to safety thingies but the whole supply/demand thing has made their price increase rival the gallon of gas increase at the pump as of late. But I'll still be on the lookout for a tang switch (won't use it, just want one for the family... the switch that is)

    I'd love to pick up a few Sears models, etc, just to remind me of the good old days when they could be catalog bought

    To me and my warped way of thinking, the Winchester 94 does represent THE American rifle (others may disagree... and that's fine as long as they at least recognize that it may be ONE of THE American Rifles at the very least) and the .30-30... old and slow does it every time (I'm not talking about me, even if the shoe fits.)

    I'm still planning on buying some of those "Leverevolution" (sp?) newfangled rounds to see what's up with them. I hear they put some zippadee-do-dah up the old girls skirts, as it were.

    Somewhere I've got a 9422 as well... which can almost hold a candle to the old 39's I prefer in .22 (shhhhhh).

    Didn't John Moses have a little something to do with the design?

    I like the 94

    I've got 5 of the 2005/2006 models. 2 in .357, 1 in .44, 1 in 30-30, and 1 in .410. I love them. My 30-30 is awfully accurate. Still need some older ones and am willing to sell the .357s.

    I have a 1973 NRA Centennial Commemorative. Love it because of the longer barrel and pistol grip.

    I bought my .30-30 1 month ago for $240 and it's literally almost new looking (I bet it's had less than 50 rounds through it). I think it depends on where you live and who you are buying from.

    I've seen them around here for $180-$250 all day long but it's mostly from hunters at shows and not actually gun enthusiasts that know the history of Winchester and know these aren't available anymore.

    I'll be buying a couple more at the next shows abd I'll also try to find different calibers as well.

    Just picked up a '94 30-30 made in 2006, one of the last ones made. A friend asked last night if I was interested in a NIB Trapper in .357 - no details yet but I think that is worth pursuing.
