A favorite among firearms enthusiasts, the Winchester Model 94 has gained the reputation of being a reliable and accurate firearm. The versatile design of the Model 94 allows it to be used for hunting a wide range of game. New for 2012 Winchester Repeating Arms unveils John Browning's original takedown design in the new Model 94 Trails End Takedown design. This rifle comes apart quickly for easy transport and has all of the features that have made the Model 94 popular.
Able to be carried in a backpack or stowed away in a truck, boat, or bush plane the Model 94 Trails End Takedown comes apart in two takedown components, the barrel assembly and the stocked receiver assembly. With a few turns of the magazine tube, the rifle can be easily disassembled and reassembled and still has the same accuracy as other Model 94's.
Chambered in 30-30 Win and 450 Marlin calibers the Model 94 Trails End Takedown comes with a 20 inch barrel. The 450 Marlin barrel is ported for less muzzle jump. The walnut stock and satin finish give the rifle a nostalgic elegant look. Acquiring a target is easy with the Marble Arms front sight and semi-buckhorn rear sight, the Model 94 is also drilled and tapped for a scope mount. If a scope is attached, the Model 94 comes with a hammer spur extension to aid in the cocking of the hammer.
Round locking bolt trunnions ensure a smooth quick lever throw. The lever features radiused edges for comfort when cycling between shots. The Model 94 Trails End Takedown has a triple checked button rifled barrel for excellent accuracy and precision.
