New Winchester deliveries?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hi guys and Gals,
I am waiting for the Leverguns that have been in the Winchester catalogue and web site for this year. Is anyone seeing any? I am looking for the new M-94 Short Rifle to use as a shooter. Have not seen even ONE of the advertised leverguns up here in Alaska.

Thanks

Casey in Alaska

I don't know about the 94 short rifle, but I called and asked about the Model 71 (a shot-show special item on their web site). They told me they were expecting shipments in December and January. It may be that the other Japanese-sourced lever guns have been similary delayed in getting to our shores.

Thanks for the info. I will keep waiting for awhile. Maybe Red Peppers info will pan out and they will start showing up locally later this year or early next year. I am taking my 16" Saddle Ring model 94 .30-30 deer hunting later in Nov. It will work for now, backing up my .375 H&H !

I hope you are able to locate the gun you want. Waiting can be tough....Know what that's like....waited for tha Ruger Gunsite Scout for like 4 months for the dealer to get one.


For $949.00 I'd find a quality Pre-64 and make my own short rifle, with top eject.

Almost a grand for a Lever Winchester, that is not even a 'real' Winchester....

Sad.

It does seem weird to have the most “American” of rifles built overseas, and I would prefer they were made in SC like the new Model 70’s, but I will have to admit that Miroku makes an outstanding product. The fit, finish, and overall quality are well above those of most other manufacturers, and the Brownings/Winchesters by Miroku are typically well worth the money. Maybe if the 94 becomes popular enough again they’ll start producing them alongside the Model 70. I would love to see Winchester keep the 1886, Model 94, and Model 92 as regular offerings in their catalog, made in the USA. And, while I’m dreaming, it would be wonderful if Hornady produced an FTX bullet for the .348.

Miroku definitely makes a quality rifle. Myself, I wish Winchester was something other than a completely empty brand name that folks thought meant something.

Miruku does make quality firearms, but they are not winchesters. I sadly submit that we have seen the last of the "quality" American Winchesters.

About 2006 I purchased a Winchester Trapper in 45Colt. It sports a 16" barrel, and is a darn handy rifle. While it is surely a "modern" rifle, and is a quality rifle, it is surely NOT a Winchester of years past.

For the OP, I truly hope that for the price tag, the quality is impeccable, and you are able to obtain the Winchester you desire.

The Japanese are a unique source for quite a few raw materials and components. The Tsunami effect has many of those companies still on the ropes, and I wouldn't be surprised if Winchesters were one of those. ??

The Model 70 is made in South Carolina, but the lever guns are produced by Miroku in Japan.
