Our Assessment: The Winchester '94 is a very strong and durable design. In this short barrel length, chambered for the abundant and useful .30 WCF cartridges, it should make a terrific little brush or field gun! Add the convenience of the saddle ring, the nicely grained wood and the frame colors – and not only do you have a practical rifle, you have a beautiful rifle. This model is not a commemorative and did not come from the custom shop it was offered as a factory “better than the standard”.
