Winchester 94 in .44-40

I didn't know Winchester made a .44-40 in the Mod. 94. Does anyone have any info as to when this cart. was produced in the '94? My thanks for clearing this up.

I don't think Winchester, originally made a Model 94 in 44-40. You may be thinking of a commerative model?

Good work Marine1, that's a beautiful set of guns. No, this rifle seems to be from the 70's or 80's, angle eject, pre-safetys, that sort of thing. Did Winchester make these for Cowboy Action Shooting? I consider myself pretty savie on Winchesters, but I'm stumped. I've been reloading .44-40 ammo for years and did not know I probabily could have been loading hotter loads for a '94 rifle.

I am not sure, about Cowboy Action Shooting, or not? I am really not up on Winchester Commeratives. I just tried to assist you with your questions. I do know this, I once owned a Model 92 Winchester SRC in 44-40, (1913 dated). It was an old studio gun from MGM. It was extremely accurate. I also loaded 44-40 ammo, back in the 1970's. I used the old Lyman formulas, with Sierra jacketed bullets. It was really sad, as the brass, upon firing the rifle, would either bulge or rupture, or split, at the center, of the casings about 1/4" in the chamber. The gun was about 90%. A friend got it in on a trade at his Glendale, Ca Gun Shop, in the early 1970's. I traded it off to a buddie LA Fireman, and told him of the problem. He said he was going to re-chamber it for a different cartridge. Last I heard about it?

OK..Try This

Marine1, Yes you were right, I ask some questions of the owner of the 44-40/94 and found out that someone had done work on the rifle. The stock is from a 94 rifle and does not belong on a carbine. It looks nice, but I'm not a player for that. Still not sure about the year of manufacture,but it does look like Winchester did in fact make the 94 in 44-40 at some point. Thanks for the hand.

  • The Winchester Trails End was chambered in .44-40 from 1998-99. The the Custom Limited Edition had 2,000 94s chambered in .44-40 also. Found in Blue Book of Gun Values, 26th edition.

Winchester could have manufactured a replica of the 1894 SRC in 44-40? I have not seen one, though. What bothered me was the ammo loading gate, (in the photo on this rifle), appears to be a 30-30 loading gate, and not a "smaller" 44-40 loading gate. Also the front sight hood was not originally manufactured on the 1894 SRC Winchester. It appeared to be worked on, to me? This lead me to to believe, the need to ask more questions, and examine more photos of this rifle. Glad to help, with what little I did.

Thank you guys for the help. I'm going to pass on this gun, but another is around the corner. I'm always amazed at the knowlege and versatility of the Battlerifles group. Whether it be M1 carbines, AR-15's, or plain old lever actions, all seems to be covered..at least to a certin degree. Good shooting!
