I posted a rebuttal to that post on Wiki 3-years ago. Bert, It seems you've either deleted my posts or they haven't been added. I was also wondering if I were to redo the blue on the rifle if that would affect pricing positively or negatively.Click on the link below. The value is based on the graded condition, the caliber, and the specific configuration of the gun... As you may have guessed, I'm rather inexperienced in this all and would appreciate any of your expertise. Edit: if you don't remember, you previously said my rifle was made in July of '41. If you take time to register, it makes it much easier to track you threads and responses.I have a winchester model 94ae 44 rem mag ranger with 16" barrel NIB no defects at all.
The post-64 Winchester model 94 begin with serial number 2,700,000.For purposes of determining if your gun is legally considered an “antique” (pre-1899 DOM), the BATF has told us they use the DOM dates published by the manufacture (Winchester).Those dates coincide with the Madis dates and can be viewed on Winchester’s site at: If you would like to obtain factory research on your Winchester, we urge you to join WACA and the Cody Firearms Museum. The chart in this thread for serial # id show a lapse between 64 and 65 models.The 65 models all start with 279 and the 64 models were all below 2,700,000. I am a newbie to the forum so any help is wonderful.
