I posted a couple of photos of it beside my Model 74 on page 2 of this "LEVER ACTION RIFLES" post. You told me how to post pics. Thanks again for that. I should probably try to figure out how to make them smaller so they'll fit in the view area.

Which model would you pick ole442

None in particular. One in as good of shape as I could afford, as old as possible in a caliber that is not too hard to obtain.

Seen that Rick...when the admin upgrades this site, posted pictures will be easier to review and will fit into the viewing area better.

Understood ole442...

That will be great Shooter, especially for the long guns...

ole442, I'd be looking at Winchester Model 94s primarily in .30-30 WIN. They're very popular as they have been in production since the late 1800s and there's tons of them for sale. There's a few .32-40s & .38-55s in the mix so look specifically for .30-30s as the ammunition is sold everywhere and starts at about $0.75 per round. Try to stick with the models built before 1964 because of material changes like sintered steel receivers, stamped action parts, and hollow pins. To accurize your Model 94, get a rear "Peep-sight" since a scope will not be of any advantage since the rifle ejects the spent shell upwards instead of out the side. In your search for a Winchester Lever Action, you'll run across some models that you'll want, but don't let the caliber bite you. Some of that old ammo is hard to find and can be quite pricey, which will negate the pleasure of shooting a lot. ... For what it's all worth...

I just came across a 4,76×,××× (1979?) Era winchwster 94 thats pretty rough shape, it has a sprung loose patch on the upper tang.
So need to straighten it out and possibly silver solder this receiver tang?
If jigged wrong, tightening stress will break the tang when the tang screw is tightened.

in 1972 the sintering alloy was changed once more, this time the amount of steel was low enough that the receivers needed to be iron plated in order to accept bluing, the DuLite formula used was the original WinBlue/Oxiblack.

Some pics might help. Seems like you could stress relieve the part on the tang.
