Need help finding a lost family heirloom rifle.
I was once the proud owner of a Winchester model 94 30-30. It was given to me by my grandfather who was dying of lung cancer in 1995. I was 15. In 2004 I was married, and in a marriage in turmoil, and in financial troubles I took my prized rifle in for some cash to get me by. I never returned to pay the charges and the loan defaulted. With too much on my plate I put it on the back-burner, and realized it was gone forever. I have regretted that decision every day since, and I'm going this far in desperation to find this rifle.
It was pawned at Jery's Pawn Shop in Spring Lake NC in mid-2004.
It was 1978 year manufacture. Same as my birth year.
It had an inch long, 1/2 inch high...diminishing stain on the blue on the right side. It looked almost like a brush stroke that took the finish off. Pappaw was in too weak of health for me to ask how it got there.
It is serial number 4604802.
I made a huge mistake, and hope to find it. Somehow.
Anybody who has bought one from a pawn shop in NC, or from someone....please check your serial number, and from one gun owner/lover to another please help me spread the word.
Finding this rifle would mean the world to me.
