Oh, and if you use the correct polishing room data at the Winchester Collector Association (compiled by leading expert, Bert Hartman), you will find that your gun is a December 1948 build.  No flat bands were built in 1949.  If you remove your forestock, you will see the year '48' stamped on the bottom barrel flat.

But you knew that too, right?

Nope and nope. Thanks for the info!  thumb1 Iíd heard the term ďflat bandĒ before but had never delved into it. Now, I see this is a relatively scarce feature (given the total number of 94s). Iím looking forward to getting home from work travel to disassemble this slim carbine. A letter sounds like a fun and interesting item to obtain, Iíll have to look into that. Iím thinking I probably did okay for $367.50  :)

The John Wayne spin-cock is the preferred method of loading this rifle.  Give it a shot.

First time Iíve heard of that particular cartridge. Interesting area but so far Iíve eluded the call of the old black powder cartridge firearms  rofl

Great pic. 

The "struck through the blue" proof mark on the barrel along with the overall even wear appearance of the whole gun pretty much indicated an original barrel.  But the date seals the deal.

It is quite clean but doesn't appear to be refinished to my eye. Wood to metal fit is excellent; the metal isn't proud anywhere. If it was refinished, it had to be done carefully and a long, long time ago and accumulated some wear and a few mild bruises on the bottom.

It just doesn't seem to match the wear of the metal.
