    Personally, I probably wouldn't sell the 94 if it had ANY sentimental value to me. If I did sell it, I'd get an honest appraisal from someone very knowledgable in the Win 94's, as their values are all over the map depending on exactly what you have.

    If you've had it since you were 13 then why would you consider selling it. Sell something else ,you're wife or kids maybe but not a close and deer friend!!!gun)

    Keep it!!! you will regret it down the road if you sell it. Think back to how that rifle made you feel when you were a boy when you first saw it there in the rack the first time you touched it the smell the way the lever cycled so smoth. I have a rifle like that I will never sell it makes me think back to simpler times when all I wanted from my rifle was for it to kill game not shoot a fly at 2k. I saved all my money for 2 years to buy that gun and I will never sell it.

NOT GOOD it was proped up in the coner of a old timers house (he was a coffin dodger back then) when he painted that room he painted around it it had drips on it that was the easy part back when he stoped hunting he thought it was a good idea it was he opened the acttion grabed he trusty axle grease gun. FROM the muzzle filled the barrle and every cavidy he could find have you ever tryed to remove dryed axle bearing grease took my dad I dont know a month or so to clean it all out well that how it looked and felt and we will leave the smell part out finly got to cycled well what can I say it is an old 94 (dam neer broke my hand trying to be the rifle man can any one rember that old show) but I learned I can still remeber hunting with it like it was last week end (IT WAS) dam it felt good my son MISSED 2 deer with it (what do you think he said)I grabed it shoot at 50 Y 5" target missed low left only by 3" mybe 4" 2 shoots each bulet shared the same hole (of corse he gave me shit) did it againe same thing this time hi right handed back to him and said learn to shoot it (but dont piss it off)thinking about that its been 10 years or os since shoot that rifle
