Best Answer

I have two Model 94 Winchesters. One is serial number 1596xxx which was manufactured in 1949 and is marked '.30WCF.' The second is serial number 2086xxx and was manufactured in 1955. I cannot find a definitive date when Winchester switched from .30 WCF to .30/30 but I have seen, and once owned, more antique Winchesters makred '.30/30.' My hypotesis is that when production of Model 94s was resumed in earnest following WWII the .30WCF marking was used but changed to .30/30 in approximately 1954.

When it was introduced, it was called .30 WCF (Thirty caliber Winchester Center Fire). At some point became 30-30. Value depends on condition. Around $ 300 would be somewhere in the ballpark. Marlin originally used 30-30 so they wouldn't have to put a Winchester "brand" on their rifles when manufactured in the caliber.
