As many special orders features were available, a variety of interesting configurations can be found in both rifles and carbines making the Model 1894 one of the most collectable of all Winchesters.In 1964, major changes in the manufacturing process were adopted to lower production costs.Winchester advertised 1894's to various government agencies all through 1917 as available in stock in large numbers so these rifles could have been made in early 1917. I don't care about the exact year of manufacture of my rifle, my guess it is probably early 1917 or late 1916.It seems that date of manufacture numbers are probably off as much as two years in this time frame. I'm just observing that the commonly used charts have to be wrong for certain time frames and wondering if experts somewhere had been able to come up with more accurate dates.The numbers I have listed below are estimates that are based on my research survey, and they should not be relied upon to determine an "exact" DOM. In some cases, the bins were refilled before the bin was completely empty, and that left on older serial numbered receiver on the bottom of the bin for months, and sometimes a few years. 1946 ended at circa serial number 1,411,000 1947 ended at circa serial number 1,470,000 1948 ended at circa serial number 1,560,000 1949 ended at circa serial number 1,660,000 1950 ended at circa serial number 1,760,000 1951 ended at circa serial number 1,875,000 1952 ended at circa serial number 1,960,000 1953 ended at circa serial number 2,045,000 1954 ended at circa serial number 2,100,500 1955 ended at circa serial number 2,156,000 1956 ended at circa serial number 2,211,500 1957 ended at circa serial number 2,267,000 1958 ended at circa serial number 2,322,500 1959 ended at circa serial number 2,388,000 1960 ended at circa serial number 2,453,500 1961 ended at circa serial number 2,510,000 1962 ended at circa serial number 2,564,500 1963 ended at circa serial number 2,600,300 Winchester changed the designation from "Model 1894" to "Model 94" very shortly after a "Change in Manufacture Order" was issued by Frank F. The following list contains verified Model 1894 dates based on the factory warehouse ledgers (held by the Cody Firearms Museum). Undoubtedly, all of the caliber, and the Rifle versus Carbine production number ratios would change drastically if the records were available for serial numbers 354,000 - 2,600,298. For the years 1894 through 1945, the DOMs published by George Madis (and copied/republished by nearly every other reference book or internet website) do not agree with the original surviving factory records (the factory warehouse ledgers and the PRSRB records), and they are inaccurate by nearly four years in the 1896 - 1914 timeframe.The Polishing Room Serialization Record Books (PRSRBs) which contain nothing more than just the serial number, fortunately survive up to serial number 1,352,066, which was manufactured on December 29th, 1945. Winchester began producing Model 94s at an accelerated pace starting in 1935.
This model has seen continuous production since its inception and has outsold all other models. F., also known as the “30-30” (30 caliber bullet with 30 grains of powder) has killed more North American big game than any other cartridge and still remains popular to this day. Production of receivers was suspended in 1943 during World War II.The PRSRB records end at serial number 1,352,066, which is listed as the last Model 94 serial number recorded on December 29th of 1945. When the receivers were serialized and polished, they went into large bins and were sent to the finishing room (were they were blued).Following WW II, Winchester averaged approximately 100,000 Model 94s per year from 1946 - 1953, then about 55,000 per year through 1963. After being blued, the receivers were sent into the Assembly Room (in bins) and were then assembled into complete firearms in complete random order. The description at the end of the post explaining the manufacturing process helps to understand why an issue of 1800 carbines could have serial numbers all over the place.
