    It looks like a Winchester 94 top eject.On the barrel it says Sears and Roebuck model 100 Ted Williams,Serial#273.352140.I need to get some parts for it and was wondering I can buy parts for a standard 94 to fit this rifle.Can you date it or know where I can. Thanks.

    Moontroll,
    According to the cross over list in the back of "The Blue Book" the Sears 100 is a Winchester NM 94. No luck on the date. It also appears the 273.532140 is actually part of the model designation and probably not a serial #.
    Hope this helps.

    Winchester made guns for Sears in the 70's . I might be able to find something out for you.

    I think I found the date,its 1971.I just took the first two digits off(27)the number and ran it through the dating program of Winchester.I'm not absolutly positive but it jives with everything else I have found out.Thanks,now I would like to know what that NM stands for.

    The rifle was made in 1964. :wink: I have one with the same 27XXXXX serial numbers.
