If they'd gone back to the 94's roots as Browning planted 'em, since they were doing all new tooling anyway, they could have done some of the best 94s ever produced & I'd own two new ones today, regardless of the high prices.
do you think most gun owners detest the new Winchester 94's because of the design or because they're made in Japan? I don't see many people complaining about Brownings or even Weatherbys being made in Japan, so I guess i'm curious why some hate the idea that a Winchester is made there also. and why doesn't Winchester produce the Win 94 stateside like they do with the Model 70? Is it a matter of cost?
