The Winchester Model 94 was produced by Winchester Repeating Arms Company through 1980 and then by U. Repeating Arms under the Winchester brand until they ceased to manufacture rifles in 2006.
The post-64 Winchester model 94 begin with serial number 2,700,000.Additionally, competition from other manufacturers like Marlin with their model 336, lever action, Winchester changed over from a top eject to an angle eject.I thought this was a very classy touch, and it’s really well done.Winchester name brand and the Model 1894 go hand and hand. Browning in 1893 specifically to be a perfect match for the new 30-30, which was smokeless cartridge. The pull weight ranges from 3 to 5 pounds and is factory-set at 3 3/4 pounds. Creep is the perceptible movement of the trigger prior to the release of the firing pin or striker. Overtravel is the rearward movement of the trigger after the firing pin or striker has been released. When the safety is in the intermediate or middle position, the action can still be operated, allowing unfired cartridges to be cycled with the safety on.
Operating on a simple pivoting lever principle, the trigger mechanism has been completely redesigned to exhibit zero take up, zero creep and zero overtravel. Trigger System is set at the factory to have no perceptible which is convenient to operate with the thumb of your firing hand, lifting the firing pin away from the sear.
It was a culmination of the evolution of Winchester lever actions and proving to be an extremely versatile rifle.
One of the most notable changes occurred in the 1960s when production costs of the earlier Model 94 design increased dramatically, the company made the decision to find less expensive methods of production or face pricing itself out of the hunting market, which made up a large percentage of retail sales.
Trigger helps the model 70 deliver the extreme accuracy benchmark 1" group at 100 yards. This contributes to jerking the trigger and thus adds to the movement of the firearm during firing. A blade-type ejector gives you full control when ejecting a fired case.
Because of the enhanced ergonomics, wide smooth triggerpiece and 2:1 mechanical advantage created by the unique design geometry, it actually feels like half that weight. Creep has a negative influence on accuracy because it adds inconsistency and uncertainty during the trigger pull. It can actually jar the gun away from its intended point of aim and is also very distracting to the shooter. It's smooth to engage and easily identifies the safety status of the rifle.
