Re: Mod 94 Prices?

According to Wichester guru Bert Harmon, the 1964 models started with ser. No. 2,700,000.. Looks like that one is a 64 model, so not a Pre-64. It's a little too rough for me at that price, but I'm not there holding it. Sometimes they just tell you "take me home". I just passed on a 71 model with a r...

I too wish I hadn't gotten huffy when they and Win 94s hit $500. Coulda been sittin pretty now. Of course it's the same with nearly all quality classic guns. It's called inflation. AKA organized crime.

It had a scope of some kind, but was the late model with the safety. No thanks. I have a feeling the owner knew I would...
