You have provided some of the information required, however additional information is requested in order for the forum expert to make a determination as to the exact value of your firearm;
All Marking & Symbols
and some good quality pictures of the firearm, the markings, and symbols would be nice too, if you have the capabilities.
Back left barrel:
Remington arms co., Inc., Remington ilion works, ilion n.y. Made in USA
Pederson's patents oct. 12,'09. July 5,'10. Nov. 19., '12. Aug. 26,'13, sept. 9,'13
Gold circle with silver star embedded on bottom of stock
Hand Checkered engraved stock
17 inch factory barrel
Original stock, barrel, reciever, and shoulder rest, all trademarked.
I would say good condition. You can tell it has been used, but no major damage. No through scrapes on metal, small bruising on wood from wear, good coloration, small scratching on patchwork.
Given to my family by a Texas ranger 50 years ago. Grew up believing it was one of 25 original Texas ranger guns. Sorry if I worded anything incorrectly. I grew up around guns, but do not claim to be an expert. Thanks
That's a Model 14R made in 1916 (Carbine, 18" barrel) if it's shorter then it's cut, probably means you measured it from the receiver. Carbines bring a premium.

Antique Remington Rifle 30-30, Serial #6732, 20 inch barrel (or 19.5 depending upon where they considering the measurement begins, it has a side magazine that holds 7 bullets, with lever action.
Initially it was my Grandfather's, gifted to my Father and then gifted to me. I am presently 61 years old and the youngest of eleven children. The gun was purchased new either at the end of the 19th century or the early 20th century.
Grandfather's birth was 1877; Father's birth was 1912; my birth was 1953 and the Rifle was given to me when I turned 16 (in the year 1969; the gun was a gift since my father replaced the 30-30 with a 300 Savage Rifle). Therefore I have had possession of this Remington 30-30 Rifle for 45 years. I realize that it is an antique and the last it was ever used was in 1971.
There are notches on the wooden oval shape of the stock behind the lever for each deer that was killed. The only item new on the rife (purchased in 1969) is a shoulder belt that attaches to the magazine barrel and the bottom area of the wooden stock. At that time the gun's action was extremely accurate. The stock was varnished over the years, since 1971 no changes have been made to the Rifle.
Joseph: Remington has never marketed a centerfire lever action rifle and to my knowledge the only .30-30 caliber rifle marketed was the Model 788 bolt action which was introduced in 1967 (note: some early .30 Remington caliber Model 8 rifles were marked .30-30 REM prior to the standardization of the cartridge name, .30 Remington).
My guess is you have a Winchester Model 1894. Please check the manufacturers name on the barrel of your rifle.
For its age it is in excellent condition. We always kept all rifles in a rifle cabinet throughout my upbringing. My father was a carpenter and mason who built the Rifle Cabinet with glass in the door and with notches for each rifle barrel and stock that we owned; he also made a bottom drawer in the Rifle Cabinet to hold all the ammunition. When I left home the rifle was kept in a canvas bag and hidden in the one of the closets. I do not keep any ammunition in our home since I live in the State of NY and I have no intention of using the Rifle. For your review, attached are two pictures of the rifle, showing both the Right and Left sides of the rifle.
If you have any questions or comments regarding the rifle, please feel free to contact me. If possible I would appreciate an approximate value of the rifle in view of the previous information that I sent to you. I also thank you for letting me know the rifle was made in the year of 1912.
That looks like a Marlin 1893 (something)
It's actually a Marlin Model 36. This is JP's territory.
Ouch me bad, that's why I was confused but I didn't think the 36 came about until 50's....
I thought we were looking at a much older rifle, it's a lot like a delux but not delux
The Model 36 was made between 1936 and 1948 when it was replaced by the Model 336. That's pretty much the extent of my knowledge on these rifles.
I thought the same thing!??? But I just saw one... good looking gun!
