Dating a winchester model 94 narghilea de vanzare online dating
There seems to be no records for the mid 1940's on a yearly basis but numbers suggest that they continued some production. Even the references I use say that some dates are just guesses.Does anyone know about what year the production numbers become reliable? FWIW, Bert Hartman has been a Moderater on Gunbrokers "Ask the experts" for many years.

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.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.
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.
