The gun was made in 1907, which is a plus. Quoting a value is another issue. It's very hard to put a value on a gun right now, everybody's broke and they're hurting for cash. You can check the "blue book " value of the gun, or you can take it to a certified appraiser, but there's a whole lot of people out there that are hard up for cash and are forced to let their fire arms go 'for cheap'. Unless you're in dire straights, it's a bad time to sell, and if you're just curious, it's a bad time to ask about a price. It's not worth what it was 2 years ago. Your local gun shop is pretty much going to 'low ball' you on price because they need to make a profit to keep the doors open. If the gun isn't a 'hot item', they're going to offer you peanuts for it. They can't afford to tie up their working capitol in a gun that's going to sit on the shelf for a year. You can get a pretty good idea of the current value with a little homework. Take a very close look at the gun. What sort of condition are the metal parts in? Is the blue color worn off in places? Are there rust spots or pits in the metal? Shine a flashlight down the barrel and look inside. Are there black dots in there that won't come off with a cleaning brush? Are there any noticeable bulges around the exterior of the barrel, or rings around the inside? (Places where the reflection looks different and forms a band around the interior of the barrel.) Next look at the stock, is the wood cracked? What sort of shape is the finish in? The wood comes in different grades, are there any small knots? Is the grain very straight or very curly? Next look at the sights. Are they still on the gun or have they been replaced with a scope? Do they appear to be the same age as the gun? Do they look like the sights on the other guns you see in for sale on-line? Are there any extra holes in the metal where a sight may have been removed? All these factors are important to the value of any collectable firearm, and Winchester collectors are fussier then most. Next Google the model number of the gun. Check the on-line AUCTIONS and compare your gun to ones of a similar year in a similar condition with similar features to find out what they're currently selling for. Don't go by the asking price at an on line dealer, every seller out there is looking for a sucker and most of those guns will still be there until the ad expires. You need to find out what the gun actually sold for. Search the auctions, bookmark the guns that are similar to yours and go back to see what they've actually sold for. Finally, if you're looking for a value for insurance purposes, or to settle an estate, you're going to have to spend the money and go to a certified appraiser, nothing anybody on line tells you or you find in a book is going to mean a thing in court.
