Talk:Winchester Model 1894
Didn't she use a Mossberg 464 in Extinction? -SasquatchJim.
I think we should give the Mossberg 464 it's own page, it's actually a very different rifle than the Winchester. - Nyles I propose that the Mossberg 464 be removed from Imfdb because it has been misidentified in all 3 movies listed here.=LJ (talk) 17:52, 21 July 2019 (EDT)
- Not necessarily; we still have a couple confirmed appearances of the SPX variant (e.g. Cross Fire, State of Decay, Killing Floor 2, etc.), so it should stay. Plus, even if that wasn't the case, it wouldn't be "removed from IMFDB"; the general policy in these situations is to put it in the discussion page, info and all, in case it pops up later.

The model 1894 wasn't produced in .30-30 until 1895. Does anyone know what cartridge it was originally chambered for? -Anonymous
.38-55, I think. -SasquatchJim.
- .32-40 and .38-55 originally, followed by .25-35 and .30-30 in 1895. The .32 Special was introduced in 1901. - Nyles
Were any of those smokeless rounds or was the .30-30 the first smokeless rifle round Winchester used? -Anonymous
- .32-40 and .38-55 were both black powder rounds, originally introduced by Ballard for use in single-shot rifles. Both had previously been chamberings of the Winchester 1886 as well. .25-35 and .30-30 were both new, smokeless rounds, and both introduced in August 1895. .30-30 is commonly called the first commercial smokeless powder round in the US, likely because hardly anyone remembers the .25-35. - Nyles
- You can distinguish the 1873 by looking at the receiver, it has an extra metal plate or something that the 1892 and the 1894 don't. --Funkychinaman (talk) 15:52, 20 November 2013 (EST)
- The 1873 also has that distinctive bulge under the receiver at the cocking loop pivot point. It is harder to tell the 1892 and 1894 apart, particularly with the different model variations and modern reproductions. The best way to tell these apart is that the 1892 is chambered for pistol sized rounds so has a small loading gate, whereas the 1894 is chambered in the .30-30 rifle cartridge so has a larger more elongated loading gate. --commando552 (talk) 16:13, 20 November 2013 (EST)
