I actually just purchased a Winchester 94 about a month ago and have only been able to take it out to the range a couple of times, but I've really enjoyed shooting it so far. It's extremely accurate and the recoil is minimal.

Pricing on them is really bizarrely inconsistent, though. I picked up mine in a pawn shop (with a scope) for $425, although it's a post-64 model, which apparently makes it less desirable. The post-64 models are generally priced between $400 and $600 while the pre-64 models (in good shape) seem to be $1000 or more.

Like Cobia mentioned, Henry makes some really neat lever action guns as well...their .22s are just fun to shoot, so if you're looking for a plinker, you might look into one of those. The pistol-caliber Rossi Ranch Hands seem to be pretty cool, although I haven't personally shot one.

Good luck!

I did some online research and found out that the new made in Japan model 94's came out at a MSRP $1200 bucks and sales didn't go over so well.A famous American Cowboy gun made in Japan and offered at a very high price

However the reviews I read indicate that the Japanese guns are very high quality
made by Miroku of Japan, the same company that makes the Browning citori shotguns

Also read that the quality and finish out of the Conneticut plant in the last years wasn't very good. They quit making the model 94 in USA in 2006

appreciate all the info

If anyone ever sees a Japan made model 94 price tag , give me a holler

I bought one from a member here. Paid 275 for a Post-64. Haven't shot it yet, but it cleaned up nice and I really like the size and weight.

I have a good television series on guns called Tales Of The Gun. One of the episodes is on John Browning. This is a very informative series and will answer a lot of questions.

Winchester still akes the Model 94 in Japan. They are very expensive. You can find them used in Pawn Shops and at Gun Shows. I'd get a Marlin 336 if I were you.
