Winchester 94AE
« on: February 20, 2014, 09:27:45 PM »
Putting out feelers...I have a Winchester 94AE in .44mag that I bought in 2004 for deer hunting. I fired it a few times to get the feel of how it shot and then killed on deer with it. Total rounds through it are around 20. First thing I did when I got it was have a light gathering front site put on. I do not have the original front site, but it was a turd anyhow.

ANYWAY, about a year ago I inherited a Savage Stevens 30-30 that shoots like  butter, so I don't really anticipate hunting with the Winchester again. I've put off selling it because it just feels right. But...no point in having something just taking up room, so I figure I'll see if there's any interest in someone having a really nice shooting rifle.

You might want to keep it for any guests you take hunting that don't have their own rifle? Just a thought...

Barrel length? price?

I'll have to double check, but I'm pretty sure this only came in the 16" barrel. As for price...still trying to hammer that out. If you can point me to a reliable guide, cool. I've seen people slapping on prices between $450 and $700. Since they made a ton of these, I'm suspecting the lower price is more grounded in reality.

edit: Well, now I need to measure for sure. I was thinking this was the trapper, but I don't think that came with the checkered stock.

OK, 24" barrel, which makes this the 94AE Legacy.

I dunno. In .44mag? It packs a hell of a kick.

I love those guns.  If it wasn't a total pain in the ass to export guns (particularly for one-off random imports) I'd probably be after it myself.

Pretty much the only long guns I buy other than assault rifles are levers, preferably in pistol calibers.

Yeah, if there winds up being no interest in it I won't be sad to keep it. The gun just feels right when I shoulder it and puts the bullet where I want it. Can't ask much more than that.
