Thread: Winchester model 94 Prices

  1. #1

    Default Winchester model 94 Prices

    I saw the Bass Pro Flier the other day and it had a Winchester model 94 in .30-30 for $1,099 on sale!

    So, I went to Gander Mountain and they were even more expensive.

    http://www.gandermountain.com/search/model%2094

    When did Model 94's get that expensive?

    I just sold my brother one of my Model 94's. I sold it to him for $350. Just because he didn't have one anymore.

    I assume your asking about my Winchesters. They are .30-30 and post 64.

    The ones I have seen advertised were new and also in .30-30.

    That's pretty much the way the show have been going for.....
    Rarely see one for sale used, at a Mom and Pop gun store or even Big Box.
    Hummm?
    Only 30-30 I own is a Handi Rifle.

    Yep, those are the going prices for new ones these days.

    The reason for the delay in catch up on the used gun market is mostly due to sellers not checking the blue book prices.

    You guys should be getting nearly double what you are for used '94s in good condition because it is going to cost you $1k to replace them.

    Yea, I can remember when Wally World sold them for $79.95 too, but that was a while back.

    Never fear, you can still get a Marrlington 336 in 30-30 for $500-$600.

    Or a Henry for $600-$700, if you swing that way.

    I think the high cost for a real, new manufacture 94 isn't that bad really. Consider a quality bolt gun from Ruger, Remington or Winchester are going for around a grand. Leverguns have a lot of small parts and can be expensive to make. A few years ago Savage looked at the possibility of re-introducing the model 99, which would have made me very happy. Savage decided that the cost was too high and they would not be able to offer a quality product at the price point they wanted. If Someone "has to" have a real Winchester, then they're willing to pay the price. I've seen Browning BLR's going for almost 2k...

    As Kyrat said, Henry and Marlin are options, as are Rossi and Mossberg.

    Cimmaron and Uberti also make some excellent reproductions, they too will run you over $1,000, well over in some cases, and none that I saw chamber 30-30.

    I personally think your best bet is to just hunt the used market. A quick look on Gunbroker pulled up several for $500 or less. Gun shows too will give you some good deals.

    I don't even really see people hunting with lever actions in my area anymore. The bolt gun is king, but is slowly giving up ground the the AR.
    I love my 94, it was my first centerfire, but I haven't hunted with it in years (has more to do with its 1916 serial number than anything), neither do I plan on ever selling it.
    There ain't too many problems you can't fix with $500 or a 30-06.

    The bolt gun may be king in the hunting field in some areas but the 30-30 lever gun is the king of the mid-western suburban bedroom closet!

    Almost everyone I know, even if they have no firearms interest or knowledge, still has a 30-30 stuck in the back corner of the bedroom closet. Half of them do not even consider themselves "gun owners" because they forget they own it!

    That is the main reason I own a 30-30, reloading dies and bullet molds. Everybody has one.

    Long before I owned an AR or AK my son accused me of viewing my 30-30 lever gun as my "Apache Assault Rifle".

    Just think, 20 years from now we'll be saying, "I can remember when you could buy them all day long for $1000.00! Now look 'em."

    Hey, I can remember when the cheapest AR rifles were selling for $1500 and you can buy them for $500 now !!!

    Remember those days???

    Oh, that was 4 years ago!

    Sorry I was confused.

    I can not even remember what I paid for my current '94 rifle. It might have been boot on a trade for all I remember.

    Would you believe I paid $39.95 for my first 10/22 Ruger rifle and the same for my first MK1 Ruger pistol?

    Every Saturday while collecting for my paper route....I would stop at the Hardware Store.....an drool over the Win '94 for sale, in the gun cabinet....
    Was $79.95.....Never did get one.
    Have a "94 but in .32 Win Special...from the late 1940's..Got it for $50 bucks in 1969...from a guy getting divorced.
    Killed a lot of deer with that rifle 1960, 70's, 80's, even 1990's as my "brush/walking gun"....had gone to a bolt gun for out west,...field sitting and stands.
    Even the "Day of five"....Maybe could have a couple of more....but only loaded 5 shells in the rifle, while walking or (driving deer, young guys job).

    These days, it is my Werewolf rifle....(silver tipped bullets)
    But I digress ....LOL

    Still love posting this pic....1959....This is a Marlin....but they were about the same price....Marlins could be scoped easier....Winchester was still top eject.

    Yep I remember going to the woods with 5 rounds! Why would you need any more? After all, you could only take one deer back then and it had to be a buck with antlers at least 3".

    I once headed out the door with only 3 rounds of 8mmx57 and an old military trim Mauser. I brought a deer home and still had 2 rounds left.

    .32 was a good cartridge, but I did like the 35 Remington better. I had a 336 in .35 and it shot reloads like a target rifle. One of the ones I wish I had back.

    Used 94's fetch $400-$600 around here. Gun shows are full of them. Lots of guys still use lever guns in the hardwoods during deer season in my neck of the woods.

    That's kinda of the range for '94's at shows...But I have to say...Those magic pre'64 are pretty ratty some times.
    But you always hear when you buy and post that you have a 1980....Some one ALWALYS say "Should have got a pre'64

    I getting leery-ier of Gander Mountain and Cabalas .....price wise.

    Unless they have a big sale....they really don't have low prices...or a selection of used guns.
    Even the sales you have to watch.....saw a European "Drilling" ...Side by side 16ga with a 30 caliber something real long below and in-between.
    Sale tag said...Reg price..$2100...sale price $2100...savings "0"....WTH?

    I didn't know Winchester was making the 94 again. I thought the last ones were made around 2004, had the tang safety, and we're actually made in Japan.

    Yeah, they are....but a long way around.....May reflect on the prices.....

    The 1894 was produced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company through 1980 and then by U.S. Repeating Arms under the Winchester brand until they ceased manufacturing rifles in 2006. Reproductions are being made by the Miroku company of Japan and imported into the United States by the Browning Arms company of Morgan, Utah.

    I would bet that the fit and finish on the Miroku guns will be on a level with the pre-64 Winchester guns.

    Miroku has been producing the Winchester 101 shotguns as well as much of Browning's products for decades.

    I have owned and dealt with the pre-64 Winchester products and some of the output was immaculate and will never be reproduced at an affordable price in the U.S. again, every, by anyone!

    Note that I said "reasonable price".

    A pre-64 model 70 Winchester rifle, if produced today, would probably cost $3000-$5000 on the new gun market. Folks just do not realize the workmanship that went into those rifles.
