The Winchester Model 94 is one of the most iconic American sporting rifles ever made, and this particular one is chambered in the equally iconic .30-30 cartridge. It is a takedown version, made in 1907, and most interestingly of all, it comes with a legal and registered original Maxim Silencer. The Silencer is something that is difficult to find today not because they didn’t make and sell a large number of them, but because very few were ever registered (the registration tax was $200, and the silencers themselves cost between $2.50 and $7.00). That makes most of them contraband today, with no legal avenue to register them now.
