Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 94 Top Eject Carbine with a 20” barrel chambered in .44 Magnum. This is one of the quintessential American Rifles, only it is chambered is a pistol cartridge. Most ’94’s (as designed) we chambered in rifle cartridges. So here is a chance to finally dump that annoying ’92 and pick up the tried and true, “improved” ’94…
This is a great looking rifle in a caliber that you can rely on, with its 20” barrel, saddle ring and light weight, it will make a perfect brush gun. Please see the pictures and good luck!
