Winchester Model 94's Now Stamped Made In Japan
« on: May 18, 2010, 09:34:13 PM »
NRA Convention..... Winchester has American made Model 70's and Shotguns that are proudly made in America. However, the Model 94's are now stamped Made in Japan. :'(

I know that Weatherby did it, and Browning did as well for certain models, but the Model 94's????

Damn.... :-\

John Wayne is rolling over in his grave.

Made me actually feel sad, that America couldn't keep the 94's made in America. Just on principle alone.

I believe their new 1895 lever guns are made in Japan as well.

As are the "new" 1886 models. None of these are regular production firearms, and although shootable, are mainly made as high dollar wall hangers.

If you want something (lever action) to carry through the woods, get a Mossberg 464, or a Marlin 336.

Makes me regret selling my pre'64 '94 for the first time. It was a great gun and I liked, I just never shot it. I always thought that if I changed my mind I could get another, even if it did have the annoying safety. Oh, well, at least it went to a good home. :'(

Oh well. At least Henry is still made here, and now they have a .30/30.

Winchester, or at least what is left of it, is now owned by the same corporation that owns Browning. Miroku makes the Browning Citori line, and are a premier gun making outfit. I don't know if they are now producing Winchesters as well.  Bill T.

They are at the same facility, stamped right on the barrel.

Did notice a pattern of people at the NRA Show, at the Winchester Display, it was big and not as crowded, all weekend.

Marlin, on the other hand was "packed" all weekend.

I looked at the Winchesters at the NRA show as well. I was glad to see them all. I don't care if they are stamped Miroku. I like my old 101's. The new 101s are made in Belgium.
I thought the High walls were very pretty, but I would like to see other calibers than just .45-70. I was glad to see the M92s. We will have to see how they do.
The M70s are made here. But I never cared for M70s, even though I have an old one.

I was very impressed with the Colt display this year for the first time in a long time. I ordered one of the series 70, yes they are back, Commanders. It will take a while before it gets here. Supposed to start shipping in about 20 days.
