FWIW, I've already answered your SN question, to the best of my ability, where you posted it in the Winchester 94 SN thread: http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=322230

Of course, if anybody has any additional/better info, I'm all ears ( & eyes )

thanks guys, i cant seem to make much sense of the proofhouse website..
at this stage im leaning towards the better condition yellowboy.
Can any one direct me to some web sites with some history, advantages/disadvantages of these firearms. I.e will the finish on a yellowboy out last that of a slighty worn blue action? also ive read some were the 92-00 models have a cheaper roll pin instead of solid steel pins. Im just trying to get as much research in before i commit! The prices here in oz are rediculous, a s/h 94 in good condition still has a price tag higher than a new Marlin 30-30 lever action. Even the best condition one they have is 3/4 the price of the new winchester.
thanks again roger
