Some unknown hero had the forethought to record the records on microfilm.Bert and others painstakingly transferred all the microfilm to jpeg. The Polishing room is when and where each receiver got it's serial number. Depending on production demands, some serialed receivers made late in the year, "may have been" assembled and sold early in the next year.70, 71, 72, 74, 75, 77, 88, 100, 190, 250, 270, 290 Reposting this to this thread so it doesn't get lost: I've been asked more than once, why almost all the sources for Winchester manufacture dates, for all the various models of Winchesters, is flawed.This is the answer in short, with the reason for the importance of correcting it.The value is determined by the graded condition, and who you are trying to sell it to.That stated, the vast majority of the Model 94AE Carbines are worth something in the 5 - 5 range. second are you baseing your opinion on your local area . modern production rifle's might cost stuped new but have low resale value.There were a low number of Deluxe guns manufactured with pistol gtip stocks that were checkered with extra high gloss finish.** PARTS CLEAN UP Recommended books on this subject The Winchester Book by George Madis Winchester Slide Actions by Ned Schwing Copyright© 2004

Carbine - serial number 22967, 8-27-1902 (by serial number order) 32 W. Carbine - serial number 142889, 5-10-1902 (by date order) The above information should allow anyone with a letterable Model 1894 (serial 1 - 353999) to very closely estimate the DOM.This is a post that he has made and I hope you find it as informative as I have.A bored mind is a terrible thing to waste, so having some free time to kill, I finally put together a fact sheet on the true production ratios and the verified DOMs for the Winchester Model 1894/94.As many of you will undoubtedly note, the figures I have compiled below vary significantly from the numbers published by George Madis in his tomes "The Winchester Book" and "The Winchester Handbook".All of my statistical numbers were derived from a detailed survey (conducted by the Cody Firearms Museum) of the first 353,999 serial number records, and from the Polishing Room Serialization Record Books (held by the Cody Firearms Museum).
