You have refered to the firearm as a Mod 94, I will assume the the barrel markings is "MODEL 1894" and not "MODEL 94" as this would imply a manufacturing date after the mid 1920's. Are you sure that the tang sight is original, as this would add the the value if it is. A plain Jane Saddle Ring Carbine fron that era in "new in box" condition could bring upwards $2000 if you find the right collector. A well worn one with little or none of its original finish left $350 to $400. These values assume the gun is in good working condition. Extras such as checkering, engraving, or high grade wood can add quite a bit to its value. Concerning the compass, in spite of the fact that in that era Winchester was much more agreeable to special orders or modifications I'm suspicious that that compass inletted into the stock is not original. If I'm correct it would detract considerable fron a high grade firearms value.
To add to this conversation, I am in possession of a Model 1894 carbine manufactured in the '20s as well. My rifle also has the 1/2" brass compass inset into the stock on the right side. Based on this coincidence, I am inclined to believe that this a factory option and not a user added feature.
look on top of receiver, just behind barrel and you will see manufactured date

look on top of receiver, just behind the barrel. That is the year made...........
Manufactured between 1886 and 1916.
On my 1950s vintage Ithaca Model 37 16 gauge it is on the right side of the end of the receiver where the magazine tube and barrel go into the receiver, and also on the barrel adjacent to the number on the receiver. The numbers should be the same on both the barrel and receiver unless the barrel is not the original barrel, at least on mine they are.
They are date code stamped on the barrel on left side in front of receiver. A barrel location diagram and the date code table (month/year) is available on the Remington Society of America.
between the stock and the barrel
Best is take it to a gunsmith as the 94 receiver can be damaged if not done properly. The gunsmith will use a special receiver support which is wedged inside to support the receiver sides. He will then simply clamp the barrel and turn the receiver part.
The serial number is on the passenger side of the receiver, just rear of the barrel. If there is no serial number your cooey was manufactured before 1968, when no s.n. was required.
If there are no markings on the barrel or receiver, look where the gun opens. The flat is the water table & there is often information there. Also, look at the barrel flats, the part of the barrels that touch the water table & the lug which locks the barrels to the receiver. If there is no data there, it just a field gun with only shooting value if it was made to shoot smokeless powder. If the gun is not a breakup but a pump or semi-auto,
on the barrel or lower receiver
Barrel or receiver or both.
Marked on the barrel.
Made for Sears Roebuck by Stevens. There may be a model number on the right side of the receiver (most likely 5000, 5100, or 311) or a Sears product number on the barrel (101.6?) which could give an approximate date.
Well, no.... not if the receiver is chambered for 30-06.
The receiver is the frame of a firearm- in modern firearms, it is the part that the barrel connects to. Antique firearms, such as muzzle loading rifles, did not have a receiver- only the lock, stock, and barrel. (Yes, that is where the expression came from) On a modern firearm, if it has a serial number, it is stamped on the receiver. By US law, a receiver IS a firearm- everything else is parts.
Remingtons are dated not by serial number but by a 2 or 3 LETTER code stamped on the barrel- left side, about a half inch from the receiver. The Remington Collectors Association website has the chart to interpret the letters.
