Our Assessment: Produced from 1933 through 1957 – and one of the many variants of the ’94, the Model 64 is a must-have for any Winchester Lever Action Collection. It was made with a smooth pistol grip and button magazine, ideal for medium-sized game and built true to Winchester’s legacy of strength and quality production – especially during these years. This rifle was someone’s carefully commissioned hunting rifle, upgraded far beyond the work that Winchester would have done outside of a Deluxe – Apparently, this rifle was just too beautiful to use… Please see our pictures and Good luck!
