Winchester closed its original plant due to labor problems and bankruptcy. They waited the required five years or so (labor contract requirement) then started up production of the Model 70 and a few other guns at their parent's USA facility (FN, a Belguim based conglomerate). Browning is also owned by FN and had a connection to Miroku in Japan for clones of John Browning designed lever action guns other than the Model 94. So, at the end of the five years Winchester had Miroku make a version of the Model 94.
All the other John Browning clones from Miroku are beautifully made, precision finished, premium guns and the new version of the Model 94 ended up that same way. Consequently, the pricing has sky rocketed from well under $400 to well over $1000. I have not yet handled the Miroku Model 94 (It is actually marked Winchester so it really is a Winchester made for them by Miroku). But if it is anything like the several Miroku made John Browning lever clones of the 1980's that I have, it is well worth the money. The last USA Model 94's were pretty crude by comparison.
Gun show Model 94's (pre-64) run from $500 for a shooter to well over $1000 (collector driven pricing). The post-64 Model 94's are closer to $500 and the last ones, mostly carbines in pistol calibers or 30-30, are usually priced less than $500.
