Hey Guys,


We all know that the Win 94s made between 1964 and 1981 were pretty cheaply made and can be downright bad.


But, what would happen if you took one of these and replaced all of the innards (except the lever and complete bolt assembly) with pre-64 parts.


Do you think that it would smooth it up, make it tighter and operate better?


Or, are there reasons other than the internal parts that would still make this a rough rifle.


For sake of this question, forget what the replacement parts would cost, and forget the issues regarding the hard chrome finish etc.


Thanks for all opinions and speculations.

I know that I just changed out a cartridge lifter in a 1964 from the sheetmetal one that still worked after 50 years to a forged one. It works fine and I sure feel better about it.
So why not if it floats your boat.

It depends upon which rendition of post 64 gun you have. I believe there are differing reciever interior dimension on some of them but plz don't shoot me if I am wrong. I do know that pre 64 guns are still to be had at fair prices so long as you are not looking for a pristine collectors gun.
