      NEED INFO ON Winchester 94 30-30, PLEASE!!!

      just purchased a Winchester model 94 Ranger in 30-30 with No transfer bar safety from an online dealer.

      while owning several handguns, this is my first rifle purchase...i just got the bug to own a lever gun & this was reasonably priced, at least until i actually get my hands on it.

      are there any characteristics i need to be aware of?...what is the significance of "No transfer bar safety"?

      i did a birthday search & all i found is it was made after 1982.

      is there any significance to 1982?

      now that marlin has announed a $35.00 rebate on their 336, there is probably one in my future...but, for now, i own a '94.

      i'll pick it up next week from my FFL dealer

      thank you in advance

      Congratulations!

      Get the manual here: Owners Manuals -- Winchester Repeating Arms

      You'll want the pre 1992 one.

      It would have the half-cock safety.

      I don't know that there is a serial number list for after 1982.
      1982 end of year serial number was 5103248, estimate after 1982 by adding 100000 per year.
      so about 1986
