I picked up a Winchester 94 in .30-30 today. Hardly a rare item, but the price was right and in 98% condition, it followed me home.

It's not my first Winchester, but I tend to drift toward Marlins and it was a bit in the dark other than knowing a button safety was 90s and newer.

I was surprised I can't find a date of manufacture source online. It's probably a 90s manufacture, but is there a source online that I can pinpoint it a little finer?

Thanks.

Give this a try if you haven't already.

The only thing muzzle energy ever killed was time that could have spent shooting meat and learning something about how bullets work.

They all seem to drop off about the time the AE came out.

Funny how Ruger can have a list of SN with dates on their website, but the rest of the manufacturers seem to think it's a state secret.

It can't be that hard to make the database available to the public.

I think it's at the end of Winchester production.
