I have a 1953 Winchester model 94, 30-30 (sn 1960043) in excellent condition. No scratches, pitting anywhere. Looks like brand new. What is an approximate value?
Your making me want to drool all over the keyboard! It would be in the $950 to $1000. Can you post some photos of the gun? Do not use a white background. Green, blue or brown will do fine. Please take the rifle outdoors into bright open shade and let Mother Nature provide the light. Turn off the flash. Use the 'macro' or close up program for things like the caliber stamp and barrel address. Please make sure that the rifle is in focus and not just the background behind it. Blurry photos do neither of us any good.
Photos will have to come later this week.
That is fine.
We will try to be patient.
I bought one last week in 2 million range for 1100....as new in all respects.
You have me confused. In one post for a 1953 Winchester 30-30 you say the value is $500.00 but in another with basically the same info you say $950. To 1000. What gives???
Since I have you, I also have a 1953 Winchester 30-30 and unfortunately someone put a Leaupold 9 power scope on it. Is there any way to restore this gun and if not can you give me an estimated value. The gun is mostly in excellent condition but does have a small amount of pitting on the side where the bullets go in.
The potential value of a rifle is strongly determined by the condition. A lower condition, or altered rifle will be worth less than one in high original condition.
Your altered rifle, due to the scope mount is worth about $500. You could have the holes filled and the receiver refinished but it will not make it a $1000 rifle. Once the damage is done its permanent.
