The 94 is a sweet rifle and if it is a pre-1964 DOM even better!
Beware the barrel caliber stamp is what I should have said. In 100+ years you just dont know what craziness got done. I had a 94 Springfield thatís was .303 british instead of the 30-40 krag it should have been, and a 30-06 p17 Eddystone that somehow since 1917 morphed into a p14 also in .303Ö.if you have any question or arenít a gun guy always shell out a few bucks to be sure before heading off to the range was my point, just like the wise OP did.

But once the OP knows they have a 30-30 they should grab some ammo and hit the range, cause those are fun to shoot
