Our Assessment: This is a Winchester Model 94 Carbine in .30-30 WCF that was made in 1971. 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 looks like it has seen a few trips in the field, but is still in Fine condition with a good bore and strong mechanics. This rifle could be back out in the field dropping deer for another lifetime. Please see our photos and good luck!
