Congratulations! Definitely a Pre-64 which I think you already know. Looks to be a 1951 manufacture. Is yours a "long wood"? (Longer wood ahead of the rear barrel band than most post-50's 94s). With rare exception 1951 was the last Pre 64 year that *some* (not super rare but a minority) had that feature as regular (non-special model) production. This longer forearm was one aspect which characterized all carbines from 1894 through 1950. 1950 was the last year where--as far as I know--all were "long wood." No matter if it doesn't, but it's an added plus for some having an early 94 feature like that. In any event, sounds like a keeper! Pics required!
