Manufactured before 1968. No serial number was required. Many of Winchester mass produced .22 rifles did not have one.

Before a price can be determined we must establish what model of Winchester shotgun that you have,and determine the overall condition of your shotgun.How much blueing is remaining,how much original finish is left on the wooden forearm,and butt stock?Is the bore inside the barrel in good condition?All these factors determine the value of your shotgun.also include the model number,along with the serial number to help identify what shotgun that you have from Winchester.

The serial number is on the passenger side of the receiver, just rear of the barrel. If there is no serial number your cooey was manufactured before 1968, when no s.n. was required.

Check the serial number, it seems to have too many digits to be a Winchester serial number for a model 94.If the number is correct, the gun must be of recent manufacture, (making it post 64)

Yes. I doubt if Winchester ever produced a firearm without the company name or at least the WRA emblem prominently displayed. Slight correction to my previous answer. Winchester manufactured shotguns and a few rifles for Sears Roebuck and these will not carry the company name or trademark. However, even if produced BY Winchester as an exact copy of a company model, they are NOT Winchesters. The name Winchester is often stamped just to the right of the rear sight. -j. On 1894 and 94 rifles made before WWII, the name WINCHESTER is stamped on the upper stock tang. On post-war guns, it is on the left side of the barrel, below the rear sight.

Your Winchester model 12 is running between 450-700 dollars depending on condition,you could add 10% due to the shotgun being made before WW-II.

Because it is marked "MOD 04" versus MODEL 1904, that tells us that it was manufactured after April of 1919, but before December of 1931.

i will need to have you include your serial number before I can age your winchester model 70.

All Pre-64 Winchesters were manufactured before 1964. That's what pre-64 means.

Has it been done before? Does it work? How will I get it manufactured? Will people want to buy it? How many will I need to sell to make a profit?

your Winchester mod 750 is probably a 1964,that is when they bought cooey and made the most .22's The Olin Company ( Winchester) took over in 1961. If it has no serial numbers, it would have been made between 1961 and 1968 when serials were required on each gun. Cooey made the most different models before 1961..at least 29 recorded models

Really need to know what model your gun is before the serial number does any good. If it is a Winchester Model 94 it would be 1897. Model 88 would be 1959, Model 100 = 1964. And that's just assuming you have posted under the correct subtopic and it really is a Winchester.

Winchester. In those days it was the capital of England.

No sn's required before 1968.

Before I answer your question I am going to assume that you are talking about a winchester model 70 rifle?With the serial number that you provided your rifle was made by winchester in 1965.

User Avatar

No the model 70 Winchester made before 1964 was never made in stainless steel.

The Winchester 10 Gauge blank firing Cannon was introduced around 1900 for celebrations and noise making. There are estimates on numbers that were manufactured prior to Winchester stopping production of the original in 1958, (around 18,000 units produced). Bellmore and Johnson in 1975 started producing the Winchester Cannon again under license and started serial numbers on the barrels. Before then, only assembly numbers usually (3 digit) are the norm. The condition of the cannon would be a determinate factor in price, and the Winchester factory produced version being higher in price. Auctions for original cannons made in the Winchester factory can bring 1000.00 dollars or more depending on condition and demand.

SNs were not required before 1968.

Do an Internet search for Winchester Stock Oil by John Kay. He was a master restorer of old Winchesters and developed a finish like Winchester used before the 1940s. It is 100% linseed oil based, as were the original finishes, with a tint to give the Red-Brown Winchester color.

User Avatar

first of all Winchester never made a rifle in 34 Winchester special,I am assuming that you mean 32 Winchester special.If that is the case it will use 32 Winchester special ammo.I would advise you to have a competent gunsmith go over the rifle and ensure that you have the right caliber and it is safe to shoot before going to the range.

you need to add a serial number to the question before it can be answered.
