Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 94 Carbine in .30-30 WCF that was made in 1958. 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 rifle is in Fine condition with 97% of its metal finish remaining, light wear in the stocks, a great bore and strong mechanics. This rifle could be back out in the field dropping deer for another lifetime. As a pre-64 example of the 94 Carbine in high condition, it would also be a nice addition to a Winchester collection.
