    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
