At a local flea market today and saw a model 94 in 30-30. Not too bad of shape. Looked to be a decent shooter or hunter.
Question is what is a fair price for them? How do you tell what year of birth? Idk much about them.

Well that's kinda what I'm asking. What to look for. Looked like it was a short barrel. Maybe 20 inches. The mag tube was the same length as the barrel. Didn't see a safety on it.

The pre 64's are the only ones worth looking at in my opinion. I can tell the difference at glance but if you're new to Win 94's, stay below 2,700,000 on the serial number. Anything under 1,200,000 is going to be considered a per war 94 and is worth more. The year of mfg is determined by the serial number. Mostly, you're going to encounter 20" carbines, then rifles, and if your're lucky a trapper.

Windy's estimate of $150 to $150,000 is the truth. Depending on caliber, variation, and what year plus condition, condition, and condition is going to put the value in such a parameter.

I see. I'm really just interested in one for plinking and hunting. Have a 336 and and 1895. I'm much more of a fan of the marlins but getting a 94 for hunting at a good price would be good. I just don't know much about them.

For a run of the mill 94, $300-400 is the going rate around here. But like said above, it could be worth anywhere from $150 on up.

For a pre-'64 Model 94, I have found the prices to be about $100 to $200 more than a 336 in equal condition for a good to very good one.

Also if it is a short barrel, check to make sure if it is a Ranger or not.

I am betting post 1963 to be at a flea market. Approx 1983 the angle eject models came out; serial approx 5,300,000. There were two types of safeties. Cross bolt approx. 6,000,000 then at approx. 6,450,000 that changed to tang safety.

I prefer the pre '64s, but would consider an angle eject since that's when Winchester went back to forged parts, plus you can scope them if you want to. There were 700,000 made before the safety was added.

What was the asking price?

They were asking $350 and a lot of their stuff seemed overpriced so I didn't even haggle with them.
