I do not believe that any Model 94's came fron the factory with "rear peep sight". Which means that that the gun has been modified and this does detract from its collectors value (although it does make it a better shooter in my opinion). The firearm pricing guide I'm looking at gives a value of $415 for an unmodified 95% gun AT RETAIL. I believe that this figure is somewhat low, at least where I live in the Calif. central valley. I find it hard to believe that any gunshop in my area would ask any less than $500/$550 for the gun, this would give them some bargaining room. The firearm was made in 1953.
