Thank you for your interest in our Firearms Appraisal service. The information you provided was used to properly identify the information below. Here is the information you requested about your Firearm taken from

Manufacturer/Trademark –Winchester

Model/configuration – Model 94, 30 WCF

Finish (Assuming original) –Blued with walnut stock and handguard

Serial Number – mfg. circa .383173, manufactured in 1907

Additional Information –The threaded muzzle was added by a previous owner. Winchester did not thread any of the model 94's. I have never seen a Model 94 with a brake or suppressor. It doesn't mean that there are not any out there, just that is very rare to see one. It does not increase the value, it hurts (reduces) the value because the gun is not original.

The Model 94 is the worlds most popular sporting rifle, over 7 million sold.

Estimated condition based on the Photo Percentage Grading System –unknown

Estimated Value Range – Current values-

100%-N/A 98%-$4150 95%-$3675 90%-$2950 80%-$2350 70%-$1850 60%-$1300 50%-$975 40%-$800 30%-$675 20%-$550 10%-$475

% is based on the amount of original finish left on the gun along with mechanical condition.

Subtract approx. 20% for the threaded muzzle.

I trust that this information will be of interest. If you have further questions, or require assistance in the future, please feel free to contact me via’s question service.

This Firearm appraisal is a value estimate on the appraised firearm for the date of the appraisal. The value quoted is a real world market value (also known as a private party value) and is the amount you should expect to pay for the firearm. This is not an appraisal for retail or wholesale purposes.
