I just picked up a used 94 in 30-30 for 250.00 OTD. According to what i can fined by checking the S/N it was built in 64'. But it has a steel butt plate an is drilled for side mount reciever sights. Is this a left over pre-64 that was built in early 64, a kind of transition gun? Not looking for collectore value cause i got it Friday an ran 500 rounds through it the next day. I never realized 30-30 had a kick. Just wondering, cause i never paid attention to Winchester any thing, it was always out of my dollar range. I haven't had a lever gun in years. Forgot how fun they are.
