Spent some time with my Dad this holiday and this question invairiably comes up. Here is the story, Dad spent time in Korea, when he was back on leave stateside he spent his last $1 to enter a raffle to win an 1894 Winchester 30 30 lever action carbine, my Mom was pissed, but he won the raffle;p, I grew up shooting and Hunting with that rifle, a number of years ago dad passed it on to me, I could take out the eye of Mercury at 75 yards with that thing, anyway, through the years he and I had taken it to various gun shops to ask what it was worth, all we were ever told was, if you want to sell it we will buy it, never would come clean with a price. Well we talked about the rifle again over the holiday I said I would ask around, so if any of you Mudders have a connection or have an answer, I would love to here it. Here are the markings on the rifle. 30 W.C.F - where the barrel meets the reciever 293501 - underside of the reciever Nickel Steel Barrel Especially for smokeless powder - on the barrel Manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. New Haven Conn. U.S.A Patented August 21 1894 - on the barrel Model 1894 Winchester Trade Mark - on the tang The rifle has an iron sight up front and a ramp sight at the rear, I am trying to locate the flip up sight that I remember it having. Octagonal Barrel The action is tight and solid, the barrel is clean, no pitting, no rust, stock is in great shape, it has always been stored and kept clean, original patina on the wood and barrel, I can say that it has probably had + - 350 / 400 rounds thru it since my Dad won it in Korea. Not interested in ever selling but would love to be able to tell Dad what his $1 dollar is worth now, for me it will forever be the memories, until I pass it down. Any help would be fantastic.
