    Buddy had one, not quite that old maybe? It was a pretty early serial when I checked it.
    It was in tough shape when he brought it to me to clean up.
    Turned out just lovely, and was a great shooter in 32 special.
    If I recall, it had an octagonal barrel.

    I offered him $500 for it about 15 years ago, and the bugger wouldnt take it!

    Figuring out value on some of these early Winchester’s is such a mess I don’t even want to touch it. Last guy I talked to about one was pointing out the orientation of all the action screws and how to tell whether it had been disassembled since it left the factory.

    ... the gun is a wall hanger at best

    Amazing assessment without having laid eyes on it.

    You guys need to watch the gun auctions. 94s in condition that sucks go for $400 minimum and we are talking broken stocks and so rusted over the years you can hardly read the script on the barrel. I tried to buy a few now and guys just keep bidding till they get them thinking they can resale them again.

    I'm broke so it's not on my radar anymore for the moment, and a scope for my rimfire is next on the to-do list.
