AZ_Rebel, where did you get that butt cuff with the cartridge loops? I really want one!
1956 .32 win spl that was my dad's.
Have a trails end model in .357 mag, is one of my favorites to shoot in my collection.
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.
Two pre 64s andf a 70s something in 30-30
I could not find what I was looking for so I made it myself.
Note that it is a Combination Butt Cuff/Recoil Pad/Sling Mount.
Now that there are pictures... 1940 .30WCF
I also got a Big Bore 94 when they first came out... mine is in .375 Win.
The .307 looked good too.
Gotta love 94's!
Gosh. Mine is not old at all, and in a pistol caliber. .44Mag.
Winchester 94-32, .32 w.s. thank you very much.
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!
My dad bought mine for me in 1974 for $94.
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.
Getting mine ready for deer season opening day as soon as I get home tonight.
94 trapper .357 and just love it.
94 AE Legacy 30.30 + Trapper .357 w/saddle ring
( Im not shure if its a trapper or what I do know its short and has a saddle ring and its older than my legacy)
While we are on the subject,
What are the opinions of THR members on the value of these rifles we now own since the coneticut plant shut down and Win is no longer making
the beloved lever action 30.30 ect......
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.
love it i reload too
