Winchester model 94, circa 1956
« on: August 15, 2010, 10:19:54 pm »
Ran into a friend of mine today, that had a nice old 30 30 Winchester in his truck seat. He said it belonged to another friend of his that wanted to sell it. The bluing is around 50%. It has a few small rust spots, and looks like it's been laying in the closet for a while. Over all, it looks like it would clean up good. The serial number is 2164126, giving it a production date in 1956. I didn't get a look at the bore. What are these going for? Is there a general price range for one that needs cleaning up? He was asking $250.

$175-$250 is a fair price for the 1980's Otasco badged "special edition" faux Marlins. For a real 1950's Winchester, I'd bite his hand off at that price.

Edited to add: I'm after a modern lever action. If you decide against it, please consider putting me in touch with him.

Doing a quick skim on the web, I see that the pre 1964 models are worth more than the newer models. I myself am not interested in it. But for certain will pass any info on to folks here. I've always enjoyed the group here. I'll get in touch with him tomorrow, and see if I can get pics. Like I said, it needs cleaning up. If someone here can make a good score here, I am more than willing to help. I don't know enough about these to know what condition they have to be in to bring the good $. This is a real Winchester, yes.  ;D

Securely in the wife's hands.  And it's not leaving.

This rifle is worth $250.  Twice that.

It's yours, and do with it what you will, but you will ruin any collector value if you reblue it.

Fine with me if you reblue it, really: just be aware if you ever intend to resell it.

a pre64 Winchester Model 94. You should do a little googling. They are a sought after firearm in original good condition.

Do what you want. If it had rust and scratches on it , I would reblue. Actually I would parkerize if it were mine.

The youtube video I made with the pics is down. I had a hard PC crash that proved fatal to my machine. Just got a new one now.
I used the dang auto fill for my youtube account, and don't remember the password, not can I get a new password sent because I also no longer have the email address that I used to log into with.
I'm still putting pieces together here to get back in full.

Sorry I can't help with the pics or vid....all gone. I wasn't able to retrieve them off my old hard drive either.
