Our Assessment: The Winchester Model ’94 is one of the mainstays of the rifle world, and the lever action rifle is an iconic design. The .30-30 cartridge is a time honored deer and small game round, capable out to hundreds of yards, it has probably taken more deer than any American cartridge! This one is special, wrapped in the gold of a Winchester commemorative; it retains all the elements of its classic design, but dresses it up, especially if you’re a Texan! Nice rifle, and likely to be a bargain for a lucky bidder! Heym this one is C&R eligible too!
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: Yes, this rifle is legal for transfer in California.
