The Birch wood on this model is exceptional..everyone comments how gorgeous the wood looks in the light color.
Wow, that amazes me. I have two 94s, one about 25 years old and the other made just before Winchester got out of the 94 business and they both work just fine. Dandy rifles. But that said, the birch on one of mine is simply horrendous - looks like something off of a cheap $99 Wal-Mart special.
Oh well, glad to hear that yours are nice!
