Winchester 236 U.S.N. Bolt action rifle US Pat. Oct. 10. 93.
Serial # : 10274
Barrel 24'' Caliber unknown.
Cleaning kit and folding screwdriver with tripple blades hidden in the compartment in the back of the stock.

There is an open chamber under the reciver - should be a magazine there ?
Hello, my name is Michael.

6mm Lee (.236 U.S.N. cal.), 5 shot non-detachable box mag., 24 (Sporting Rifle) or 28 (Musket) in. barrel, folding leaf sight, blue metal, military style full stock, mfg. 1897-1902, Navy Issue Model is the Musket with "236 U.S.N." on barrels. Approx. 20,000 mfg. (including 15,000 Muskets for the U.S. Navy military contract) between 1895-1902 with parts clean up occurring in 1916.

So to answer your last question first, that is a non-detatchable 5-round magazine. In very good condition, value is between $1200-1500.

Here is a reference item, serial number 10643, which realized $805 at auction in 2011, which I think is a little low, even with it's condition being "good" and a farily large crack in the stock. Yours is a lower serial number and better condition, so I think you could get the high end of the estimate I gave you with a little patience.
