Winchester 94 AE Ranger
Overall Length = 38 inches
Weight = 6.25 lbs
Barrel Length = 20 inches
Barrel Twist = 1 turn in 12 inches
Cartridge = .30-30 Winchester
Magazine Capacity = 6 round (tubular magazine)
Manufacture of Winchester rifles and shotguns in the USA ceased in 2006. I purchased this Model 94 AE Ranger new sometime between 1992 and 2002 (I'll dig out the records when I get a chance and update my memory along with this blog entry). I may have purchased this rifle from a Kmart store; I paid somewhere around $200 if memory serves. Purists lament the cost saving manufacturing changes that were used post 1964, but I am of the opinion that the final years of USA manufacturing were not bad at all; this is a jim-dandy knockabout .30-30 carbine.
THE FOLLOWING IS FROM WIKIPEDIA (CLICK HERE for the entire Wikipedia article)
... U.S. Repeating Arms did not flourish, declaring bankruptcy in 1989. It was subsequently purchased by Belgian arms maker FN Herstal, which set about improving the whole Winchester line, instituting modern CNC methods of production at Winchester's (USA) factory while also seeking to expand the sales and marketing of Winchester rifles worldwide. This effort would culminate in two major changes to the gun in 1992: the reintroducing of now-CNC-machined parts and solid pins back into the action, and the elimination of the traditional half-cock safety notch on the hammer in favor of a cross-bolt safety, which enabled the gun to be sold internationally.
Though the increase in build quality was noted at the time, it was the conspicuous presence of the new safety that generated the strongest opinions. It was widely reviled by American consumers and gun writers alike as a "lawyer" safety, who said it detracted from the overall look, feel, and operation of the rifle. FNH and Winchester responded in 2003 by moving the safety to the tang behind the receiver, which largely quelled the controversy. Both the last Model 94s to leave the New Haven factory before American production ceased in 2006 and the new Model 94s produced in Japan since 2010 by Miroku Corp. feature these tang-mounted safeties
The receiver came from the factory drilled and tapped for mounting a scope.
Back when I bought this box of ammo I probably thought the store (now long gone) was price-gouging.

Some taxpayers may settle for a once-a-week random urine sample from each of the high-and-mighty, verified by publicly available video. However, since many of us are used to politicians pissing all over us, a vast majority of citizen might prefer the poetic justice of witnessing blood being drawn from each of the federal parasites.
If for nothing more, we need to do this for all the underemployed phlebotomists and their children.
