Winchester 94 classic
I have a Winchester 94 classic hex bbl in 30-30.
It was bought in the early 90's I think, not sure. It is in new condition, never fired. The gold plated loading gate never had a round passed through it. The lever shows no sign of ever being worked, Stock has a tiger striped walnut with checked steel but plate. There is a Winchester bronze pocket knife marked 1991 and saddle ring with it. Did the gun come with a knife?

There have been a bunch of Winchester "collector" sets that include knives or some other complementary piece.

I remember in the late 60's when they were "eaten up" with the ideas of making commemoratives about anything. The only one I thought of personal value was the Theodore Roosevelt,but that's just me.

Legendary Frontiersman for me, best looking 94 they ever made after 1964.

Are you sure that rifle has a HEX barrel, and not an OCTEGON (Eight sides)barrel? I don't think I have ever seen a Winchester with a HEXAGON (six sides) barrel!
Back in the early 70s, and 80s Winchester did a lot of collector sets for just about everything you can think of, and I don't doubt the knife was probably part of the set!

Yes, it eight sided barrel. It has a look like the end cap and receiver that looks like black chrome.

Use Enough Gun
I only have one Winchester Commemorative-my Dad's 1869-1969 Golden Spike Centennial. I also have a Colt Frontier Scout Revolver to match the rifle. Both are new, never shot.
