Winchester Model 94

Winchester Late Model 94 Early-Style Retrofit Rifle Stock

Winchester Late Model 94 Rifle-Style Cowboy Shooter Retrofit Buttstock

An authentic, early-style buttstock for later Model 94 rifles.
The outside contours and dimensions of this special retrofit stock are the same as those found on the earliest Winchester Model 1894 rifles. The inletting has been modified to fit the wider top receiver tangs of Model 94s manufactured after 1948, with serial numbers greater than 1,520,000 (approximate). Additional clearance has also been provided to accommodate the later coil-type of mainspring used on post-1964 models (will also work with earlier flat mainsprings). This stock will accept original Winchester Model 1894 crescent rifle buttplates as well as our reproduced Model 1894 buttplates.
Winchester Late Model 94 Early-Style Retrofit Carbine Stock

Winchester Late Model 94 Carbine-Style Cowboy Shooter Retrofit Buttstock

Early-style carbine buttstock for later Model 94 rifles.

DISCONTINUED ITEM due to unavailability of reproduced Winchester 1894 carbine buttplates. Price has been reduced. When they're gone, they're gone!

As with the retrofit rifle buttstock above, this early carbine-style stock has the same contours and dimensions as early-original, pre-WWII carbine stocks, but has the receiver tang inletting for later Model 94s, manufactured after 1948, with serial numbers greater than approximately 1,520,000. The widest portion of the upper receiver tangs on these later models is approximately one inch in width, as opposed to the narrower 7/8 inch width (approximate) of earlier rifles and carbines. This stock is manufactured to accept our reproduced Winchester Model 1894 carbine buttplate (no longer available), but will also work with early original Model 1894 carbine buttplates with slightly more fitting required.
Winchester Model 94 Early-Style Retrofit Carbine Forearm

Winchester Late Model 94 Cowboy Shooter Retrofit Carbine Forearm

A longer, early-style carbine forearm for your late Model 94.


This carbine forearm has the same dimensions as early-original Model 1894 forearms, but is machined to fit later Model 94 receivers which utilize a round recess in the face of the receiver, rather than the earlier U-shaped recess. This change occurred in the mid-1950s and continued until the end of production. If you prefer the authentic look of the earlier, longer carbine forearm for your later Model 94, this forearm is for you! Please note: Late Model 94 Cowboy Shooter Retrofit carbine forearms are available only for standard weight barrels, and are not compatible with Big Bore models. Standard weight carbine barrels have an approximate diameter of .930" at the receiver and .670" at the barrel band.
