Amazing Variety of Winchester 94 Factory Commemoratives

Amazing Variety of Winchester 94 Factory Commemoratives

For over four decades, Winchester produced American-made factory Commemorative Issue models that were instant collectibles.

While their historic North Haven, Connecticut factory was still in full swing, Winchester cranked out more than 100 runs of such Commemorative Issue Model 94 lever guns between 1964 and 2005 with the largest runs made before 1985. While that sounds like a huge variety of guns, keep in mind some, like the 1972 Yellow Boy, were only advertised in Europe while others, for instance, the Saskatchewan Diamond Jubilee in 1980, were only marketed in Canada as they were made by Cooey in Ontario. Even with that, the models that made it to shelves in America were amazing.

    I remember when you got 1 with a new Dodge pickup of a certain model, late ’70’s, early ’80’s I think.

    Franklin mint has an amazing variety of manufactured ‘collectible’ plates too.

    These commemoratives are everywhere these days because they were part of Estates where the folks are now in their 70s and 80s and they’re parting with them in large numbers

    Some of these guns have features of both carbines and sporting rifles. Too bad they weren’t made pre ‘64.



  13. TailGunner45 on November 27, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Winchester is gone to shit now

    Kept waiting for him to say " And my personal favourite ". From the movie 5th element if you’ve not seen the film.

    My late brother, Ray, had a collectible (forget the model & caliber) my dad bought for him ca. the late ’60s ( believe it or not in the PDRNJ)…had an octagon barrel, god trigger & loading gate…he got in trouble in the early/mid 70s and either pawned or sold it…



  19. J Barnell on November 27, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    I cant find a buffalo Bill disassembly video anywhere its different than the regular 94 model

    When are you leaving town? I’ll watch your collection.



  21. John Fisher on November 27, 2021 at 9:24 pm

  23. Leroy Jenkins on November 27, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    My dad owned almost all of these at one point, unfired new in box , that had belonged to my grandfather who worked for Winchester. unfortunately they were lost in a house fire in 2011. I’m hoping to re-build the collection someday . The Legendary Lawmen was always my favorite.



  24. Brian Kerr on November 27, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    I have a 1894 to 1994 trapper carbine in 44 mag with the big hoop.



  25. Red Ram on November 27, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    No 1985 BSA commemoration?



  26. LTown on November 27, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    What about the Oliver F Winchester commemorative???



  27. Jacob Mitchell on November 27, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    A crime against nature would be to shoot any of these



  28. Lochtaupo on November 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Man do you ship to Australia?



  29. Jeramy Whitwell on November 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    6:15 The last one is a short rifle, not a carbine. Ain’t it?



  30. SamofCR on November 27, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    I have one you did not show. Bi-Centennial 1776/1976 with box, book and wall rack. Unfired and still coated with
    Winchester protectant.



  31. MD REHAN ALI on November 27, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Thank u sir . i wanna know about pumpaction rifle not shotgun



  32. Brian Searles on November 27, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    My Saskatchewan Diamond Jubilee was made in North Haven Connecticut USA, as stamped on the barrel. I don’t see anywhere on my rifle that it was made in Canada by Cooey. I don’t think Cooey made any lever actions, have only seen bolt action .22’s.



  33. 451whitworth on November 27, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    "Limited production" i.e. they made tens of thousands of them



  34. Paul Autry on November 27, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I don’t even desire one of those cheapies. Must either be pre-64 or 82-91 to get my attention.



  35. Slick Sixguns on November 27, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    94 isn’t my favorite model



  36. Alex Rmz on November 27, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    The 94s made in 64-onward weren’t made in New Haven. They were made with shitty parts compared to the pre 64s. The ones made in Miroku Japan seem to be ok, the only problem is that they have a BS tang safety.
