« on: September 28, 2020, 02:12:59 PM »
Hey all -

Not horribly old...if I remember right it was built around 1937. The gun is in pretty good shape from what I can tell. No cracks, rust, just normal hunting wear. Would just like to get it back to "showroom" condition.

Don't refinish anything!!! Clean it , oil it . You can have it checked out to see that its safe. But don' refinish anything. You could lose a lot of value by doing that. :bdid:

As states above dont refinish it. I would check with Dana @ Black Hammer Arms in Tacoma, site sponsor. He does a. Great job in cleaning before he does refinishing Ask for a good clean job.  :twocents:

There were 6.5 million 94s made. If you want yours to be a show piece again than find a good- licensed- gunsmith and its an easy job. Lengthy, but easy. Polish parts, give em a hot salt bath, strip the wood and clean the checkering(if it has it) and oil her up. Price could me a few hundred to a 1,000 depending on your desired level of showroom
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

There is one savage 99 in 300 savage my dad has was his first rifle and I shot my first muley with it. Both my brother's shot there first deer with a model 94 in 32special that was grandpa's. Now in the family we have 4 model 94's and 2 model 99 both are a great brush gun nice short package easy to swing in the thick stuff we love them and keep them clean and nice, but they still get packed all over the countryside and used and earn there keep. We also have a large collection of Winchester model 70's in a spattering of calibers oh did I mention every winchester we have is a pre 64  :chuckle: several of which were pawnshop buys they can still be found in great shape

Had son's grandpa's first rifle - model 94, 30-30 completely redone.   Show quality bluing, replacement walnut wood with poly-urethane type finish.   Its not something to use, but its the prettiest rifle in the safe and will be passed on forever. 

Some smith in Vancouver, WA did the work 10 years ago, don't know who.  Worthwhile return on investment.
