Dating a winchester model 94
but the resistance to acknowledge this info is still strong.........it's still printed alongside the old Madis info.
Why the resistance to acceptance of the accurate information? # 385577B I used Madis numbers to find it was made around 1890.
Although production ended officially in 1932, a small number of Model 1906 rifles were built out of spare parts left in the factory until 1936.
Larry Shennum and Bert Hartman just compiled these dates from the Winchester Polishing Room records, and miles of microfilm converted to jpg. The dates in the Blue Book, and any you find online, are based on the Madis data, and are severely flawed. :eek: Post the model and serial number, use X's if you're worried about that stuff, but give me at least the first 3 digits, and I'll give you the DOM, and production numbers if I have them.
70, 71, 72, 74, 75, 77, 88, 100, 190, 250, 270, 290 Reposting this to this thread so it doesn't get lost: I've been asked more than once, why almost all the sources for Winchester manufacture dates, for all the various models of Winchesters, is flawed.
