I recently got a Winchester model 94 chambered in .375 Winchester as you may know ammo is not easy to come by so I was woundering what all is involved in making my .375 into a 30-30

Yes, what he said ^^^^^. I'd actually suggest selling it, as they typically go for $700+ if in very good condition. Then take those proceeds and purchase another rifle. Since you wanted(?) a .375, have you considered a Marlin in .35 Rem as a replacement? They are not that different in performance and both (IMHO) outperform the venerable 30-30.

Good luck!

I agree, sell it and buy a 30-30.

No need to deface a somewhat rare rifle. I only use rare as a term relative to the number of '94s made in 30-30, 32spl and whatnot...

I think that the 94 BB's (particularly the pre-AE) will enjoy a slow but steady rise in value as collectors in years to come.

I've always wanted to pursue the Winchester Big Bore rifles in their various versions but just don't see any in my country.

I own a Marlin 375, a bit of a beater but I have a lot of hunting history with it so would hate to see it go. I owned two others; a NIB rifle that I ran across and another used rifle. I ended up selling the NIB for a nice price as I knew I would never use it and traded the used rifle for an 1895G (dumb).

About eight years ago, I was driving on the north side of San Antonio and noticed a outdoors type store having a liquidating sale. I want to say it was Sportsman's Warehouse or something of that nature. I went in and they had reloading components but most were gone. As I browsed the bins, one was labeled "375 Win" with three bags of 50 laying in it. I asked if they had any more in the back and sure enough they did. Walked out with 1K worth of Win brass at some ridiculous price... $12 to $15 a bag.
