I should have asked about my 38 55 winchester SN 518029 at the same time -- it also is a round barrel full length magazine--no saddle ring -- Yt -- Earl
nothing -- just took it out of storage today
Is it a Model 94?
Sorry Tom I should have said that as well --- yes it is a model 94 Winchster
Hi,The Model 1894 was Winchesters first rifle built for smokeless powder and their most popular. There have been over 6,000,000 made to date. There are several versions of the Model 94 and the version you have will affect the value.
Your gun was made in 1910. The Sporting Rifle has a 26" barrel. The Fancy Sporting Rifle has a checkered stock and forend. The Extra Lightweight Rifle has a 22" or 26" barrel with a 1/2 magazine tube, plain straight grip stock and shotgun style buttplate. The Carbine has a 20" barrel and the Trappers Carbine has a 14", 15", 16" or 18" barrel. Values for the Sporting Rifle are:excellent-$4000, very good-$3000, good-$1500, fair$850, poor-$450Add 25% for takedown variation.Add approx. 50% for calibers other than .30-30 Win. or .32 Spl.If you have one of the other models, let me know and I will give you the values. I hope this helps you, Tom
I should have measured the barrel for you --- it is a 20" so that makes it a carbine....does the carbine have a similar value to the sporting rifle --- Incidentally the 38 55 that I asked about has a 26" barrel

The information that I gave you was on the 38-55. With a 26" barrel it would be the Sporting Rifle unless it has a checkered stock and forend. If it is checkered it is a Fancy Sporting Rifle.
Someone else answered about the Carbine and gave you the correct information on that gun. The main difference in values is the date of manufacture. The Model 1894 rifle configuration (forearm stock with forearm cap) was discontinued in 1929 at approximately serial number 1,070,000. The Model 1894 rifle was replaced by the Model 55 (manufactured from 1924 to 1932), and the Model 64 (manufactured from 1933 to 1957 and 1972 to 1973). They continued to produce the Carbine without the saddle ring and that is what he gave you values for.
