I bought my Model 94 in 30-30 back in 1978, from memory. It still shoots and operates as finely as it did back then and I've never had a single issue with it. However, in the early 80's, the bluing on the receiver simply peeled off (best way I can describe it). It's been highly polished since then, and remains un-blued. A young chap asked me last week why it wasn't blued and what caused it. I have to admit I had no reasonable answer. Anyone out there know the true reason please?
