Winchester 94 – Tools used in our Videos

The Winchester 94 has been around for well over 100 years and is one of the iconic rifles of the west. This article shows you the Winchester 94 Tools that we used in our videos. 

The Winchester 94 is not a difficult rifle to work on, however, there are a lot of screws and you will find yourself switching screwdrivers often. We do recommend a good set of gunsmithing screwdrivers to keep you from striping screw heads and scratching the receiver. 

There are several manufacturers of quality gunsmith tools that you can choose from and at a price point for just about every budget. These can be purchased online from places like Brownells and Amazon.

I do recommend that people purchase their gunsmith tools at Brownells whenever possible. Brownells has Guaranteed Forever policy on most of their products. If you don’t need it, don’t want it or don’t like it, they will take it back anytime. I have used their Guaranteed Forever policy on punches that I broke removing stuck roll pins. It was a simple process of contacting customer service and they replaced the punches at no cost to me.
