Hello,

The Model 1902/02/02A was in production from 1902 through 1930. If it is marked "02", it was manufactured sometime after February of 1919.

The value is highly dependent upon the graded condition of the gun... we have no way of knowing that without seeing several clear close-up pictures of the gun.

Hi, I finally got a replacement stock for it but am still looking for a trigger guard. I would also really like to get a tracing of the trigger guard and the butt plate.

Thanks, Tom

Tom, Where did you get the stock? I have one complete, but with a broken stock. I can send pics of the trigger guard and butt plate if you need them. Tracings are also a possibility if you tell me exactly how you want them done.

I have one given to me by my Grandmother. I found out about 30 years ago that it was sold new in a dry goods store for $2.50 but had no rear sight, for two bits more you could buy the rear sight-a box with the sight and a file to sight it in. My rifle has very good riflings and the gun shop told me it would be worth about $40.00. There is also one of these rifles on display and classified as a childrens gun at the Yuma Territorial Prison State Park in Yuma, Arizona.

Do they give tours of the prison and that's how you saw the rifle, were you an inmate there, or as your user name indicates, a Keeper?

I just came aross these postings from a few years ago while researching info about my father's rifle. He was born in 1914 and he owned this gun from an early age, so the Mfr year info fits with his age.

It too is the model 02 A Short / Long rifle.
It is in original condition - only cleaned with Hoppe's #9 cleaning fluid.
Do these pictures help to determine approximate value?
Any assistance or further references will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You
Connie Clement

Hello Connie,

The "02A" was introduced in November of 1927. Your pictures are somewhat blurry and not well illuminated, but I can see that the overall graded condition is well below what the "collector" market is looking for. The value is approximately $250.

Thank you Bert - that is helpful information. I'm not looking to sell but wanted to get an idea of value for insurance purposes. I think your assessment is fair based on the limited info. I appreciate the Mfr year info too.

It is not the same as the Model 1904, and the second part of your post makes no sense.

Is there a particular reason that you are mad and shocked?

Your Model 1902 was manufactured sometime between 1914 and February 1919.

The stock has been refinished, and it appears that the trigger guard screws have been replaced. The value is approximately $250.

You can NOT shoot 22 Magnum cartridges it it!!!

The marking on the bolt is a superposed "W" and "P", and is the Winchester Proof marking. It is also stamped on the barrel.

Chris,

The "Short", "Long", and "Extra Long" are the three different .22 caliber rim fire cartridges that can be shot in yhe rifle. The 22 Extra Long has been obselete for nearly 90-years. Both the 22 Short, and the 22 Long are made by ammo maker CCI.

The brown/brass color is what happens to bluing when it oxidizes over time if the steel is not kept clean and dry.
