I reckon some people just need to blow a wad of cash.
Mine is too hard to come by.

Wow. Maybe folks think if senate changes hands the online buying party is over and just panicking? That's a nice rifle but a year ago I bet it would have sold for $900.

That price is insane! The 94's were nice, but the 64's were nicer. I'm sure glad that I got what I've got when I got it. I gunned my first whitetail with a .30 WCF 64 back in about that same year. I didn't realize what I'd borrowed.

US Customs often topping task force meeting with "dumb crook files" humor. Guy coming into land POE with Win Mod 12/16ga. 'Non official', chatty remark about chambering. Him clueless & flunked! Especially forgetting too, gun "loaded"... with coke. Pricey gun! "Street value" not appreciated by casual observation! Humor amplified... "Straw sticking out of barrel", maybe clue? smile smile smile
Best & Happy New Year!

The straw sticking out of the barrel is for the sucker born every minute. ... Something is off with the butt stock on that rifle too. Maybe a refinish or reproduction? What say you John?

The metal looks TOO blue and the finish on the wood looks pretty thick.

smile smile smile ... I own 94 Models, yet not that familiar with such particularly in context of late production. That as Winchester searching for some profitability/quality balance. The only thing I pinged on and only for further conjecture if motivated, the number of receiver holes. I recognized the receiver sight holes, presumably factory. But without the 'straw' factor :), just too far-out pricing for me to make any sense! Leaving that up to 'you experts'! Once prices achieve "Ludicrous" warp speed, I fasten seat belt adjust helmet... & snooze! Wake me when it's over for laugh & a beer!

'Dumb-amateur' Model 94 war story, my own. @ $250, taking pity on a poor Bubba 94 30 WCF. Turned out to be rare factory specimen! Go figure! Collector termed "Model 94/95", denoting 1895 barrel cleanup plugged into 94 actions. Here, 20" carbine created; c 1927-8. Pix below & you call can compare receiver holes if desired!
Best Guys!
John

If it doesn't make sense using your filter, try another filter. Everybody does what makes sense to them at the time. There is a reason, but it may not be the reason you think.

Backtobethel: I guess I am going to have to re-judge/re-assess my online and hard copy inventories to more accurately reflect "today's" pricing's of my guns values?
I do though, get a whiff of some sort of a scam - in this particular instance.
I paid EXACTLY 1/67th that amount (of $5,025.00!) for my first used Model 94 and it was also in excellent condition?
I am shaking my head at this one.
As long as the seller and the buyer (if there really is one for this Rifle!) are happy - I say trade on!

I think that includes lots of us VG. We bought stuff years ago and most guys don't ever check current values.

I picked up a '61 and felt I paid up for it at 900 plus tax, but it was the cleanest original 94 I've ever come across. I feel good about my purchase now...

My bet is whoever is bidding that high, knows more about that gun than anyone here.

That rifle isnt right. Metal is so much better then the wood. Barrel band has been side polished across the bows, oil wicking into forearm both sides and cheeks of stock. Bad scratch on left side of receiver cold stick touchup. Roll stamping on barrel almost polished away at top of lettering. Just my two cents.
Just too pretty for my smeller.
