View Full Version : 94 winchester information

February 15, 2010, 10:31 AM
I have a winchester model 94 xtr. The receiver is nickel with no engraving and the wood has checkering on the grip and forearm. The blueing is a dark black. I have never been able to find any information on this rifle can someone direct me in the right place to search, or does anyone know anything about this rifle.

The 94 is perhaps my favorite rifle but I am far from an expert on the various and sundry models they produced over the years. I don't recall nickle-plated receivers as being an option on standard XTR's. If it's a special run or commemorative, there should be identifying marks.

If you have the ability to post a photo of that 94, someone here might be able to help you.

The XTR rifles had high-gloss, checkered wood, and a high-gloss bluing. If your XTR has a silver-colored receiver, it is likely that someone stripped the receiver, which is made of siliceous stainless steel and cannot be blued.
