The Winchester .30-30 caliber model 94 short rifle weighs 6 pounds, 12 ounces. Other model 94 rifles of different calibers also weigh the same amount.
The name ".30-30' originally referred to a smokeless cartridge that was developed in the late 1800s. The model 94 rifle, which was designed by John Browning, worked extremely well with the .30-30 cartridges and rapidly became popular. The rifle has been called "the gun that won the West." As well as being popular in the 19th century, a run of Model 94 rifles was produced for the U.S. Army Signal Corps during World War I.
