I believe the 94 Winchester was originally chambered in 32-40. I'm not sure how rare they are but the John Wayne Commemorative of ~1980 was chambered for 32-40, possibly the first factory chambering since WW II. My example is serial numbered JW23353 so I suspect there are several 10s of thousands out there. I believe the 94 Winchester was originally chambered in 32-40.

Actually any caliber other than 30-30,or 32win special,will bring a 40% premium to the value of any saddle ring carbine model 1894 Winchester.I can only assume that the 32-40(32WCF) and 25-35Win.would be the 2 most rare calibers in the saddle ring carbine version of the model 1894.
The description of 30 WCF SR is commonly found on rifles that have a Saddle Ring. (SR} Carbines are described as (SRC). Hope this helps. Steve
your Winchester model 1894 saddle ring carbine was made by Winchester in 1914.
value depends on overall condition. And, I think you mean 45/70 cal. for the 1986 model or do you mean 1886 ???????????
these pre-war saddle ring carbines have been selling for between 350-500 dollars depending on the overall condition of the rifle(the amount of blueing left on the metal surfaces and finish left on the stock).
I was told by the Dealer when I purchased mine that they only made 500. Mine is in the 400 range. But I recently saw one at a Gun show that was in the 600 range. That would mean they probably made at least 1000 of them.
That is hard to say without a detailed description of the carbines overall condition including the bore.These are very highly collected,and a carbine in very good condition with most of it,s original finish could bring a high sume.I would have a Winchester Collectors assoc member give it a appraisel.By the way your carbine was made by Winchester in the year 1919.
The only Winchester 94's made in .44-40 that I am aware of were commemorative models. What other markings are on the gun? email@example.com
Your Winchester Model 94 Saddle Ring Carbine was made in 1969. It books from $325 in 100% condition to $150 in 60%.
if it has a saddle ring it is 1925 if no ring 1926
Unless a different sight was special-ordered, it would have come with the Series 26 rear sight, which was made in-house by Winchester. firstname.lastname@example.org
No, it is not a "Trapper" model. The standard barrel length for a Model 1892/92 Carbine was 200inches. Trapper Carbines were made with barrels shorter than 20-inches (e.g. 14, 15, 16, and 18 inches).
