Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 94 Carbine in .30-30 WCF that was made in 1985. It was part of a Chevrolet promotion, offering various packages for the outdoorsman to go along with their purchase of a Chevy truck. The Hunter’s package included a Winchester 94AE XTR, case, window rack, scope, safety glasses and a Winchester hat. The .30-30 is perhaps the most popular deer cartridge in America, and the 94 chambered for this classic round is nearly synonymous with “deer rifle”. This Chevy Outdoorsman 94 Carbine is in Fine-plus condition with 97% of its metal finish remaining, a great bore and strong mechanics. This rifle could be back out in the field dropping deer and riding in the back of a Chevy for another lifetime. Please see our photos and good luck!
