Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 1894 Trapper, made in 1981 with a 16” round barrel chambered in .30-30 Win. The 30-30 Win. has likely taken more deer in America than any other cartridge except maybe .30-06 and the model 1894, or simply 94 as it is now known, is one of the most popular rifles ever chambered for the round. The shorter 16″ barrel of the trapper model makes it light and fast-handling, and when coupled with the .30-30 cartridge makes it a great rifle for hunting in thicker brush or when you’re in black bear country.
