I have a Model 1894 30-30 Remington built in 1900. It is in good shape. What is the approximate value?
I am assuming you meant Winchester Model 1894, not Remington.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 1900. 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 cals. 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
Hi, The following will help to grade your gun.Excellent - 95%+ - 98% condition- blueing and stock do not have any blemishes, no repairs have been done.Very Good - 80% - 95% condition- small blemishes on metal and small dings in the stock, all parts are original.Good - 60% - 80% condition, small repairs and factory replacement partsFair - 20% - 60% condition - reblueing, stock repairs, replacement parts, 50% finish
Poor - under 20% condition
Clean the gun with a soft cloth and gun oil. I use lemon oil on the wood and gun oil for everything else, inside and out.
