With that serial number, you have a first-year (1894) gun, which MAY get bids a bit higher. It definitely gets the 30% premium for being classified as an antique by the BATF. 38-55 is one of the more desireable calibers and should add another 10% to the price. Assuming it is a plain sporting rifle in NRA Good condition (90% original finish and all original parts), the price guides suggest a base value of $1350, so yours should have a retail value around $1950-$2000.
The model number should be stamped into the barrel near the Winchester name. It will say "model" or "model of"
I don't think so and I checked thoroughly. Where did you get the number? The model number and caliber should be stamped right into the barrel of the gun.
By the specific serial number stamped into the frame.
There is no such thing as a "model 702337". The number you list appears to be a serial number. The Model number will be stamped on the barrel, or on the upper tang behind the hammer.
It should be stamped on the barrel It should be stamped on the barrel
On the vast number of the various Winchester models, the Model designation is stamped on the barrel, or on the upper tang. If you can tell me what type of action it has, I can point you in the right direction.
Could you recheck the model number, (It's stamped in the barrel.) There's no such thing as a model 210 so far as I can tell.
You need to post the model number of the gun. It will be stamped right into the barrel.
You'll need to post the model number of the gun, it will be stamped into the barrel next to the Winchester name.
The model number of the rifle should be stamped into the barrel by the Winchester name. If the barrel doesn't have the Winchester name, the model of the gun, and the caliber it's chambered for stamped into it, it's not the barrel that came with the gun. This will complicate the identification and you'll need to post a picture to get an answer. The serial number on a Winchester rifle is only unique to the particular model. Pretty much every model rifle Winchester ever made had one unit with that serial number. It could be anything from a lever action 1895 to a model 12 pump shot gun. If you're have both the model number and serial number, go to the website listed below to find the date it was made. Scroll down to "Related Links" and click on "Arms Collector".

Stamped on barrel, Barrel and reciever one piece.
If the gun is a "take-down model" The serial number will be stamped on both the barrel and the action.It would be faster for you go to the link below to see what a "take-down model is then for me to explain.
It will be stamped into the side of the receiver.
On the barrel.
There should be a stamped model number on the left side of your barrel. The serial number will be on the reciever; however, the model number is on the barrel.
The serial number is stamped on the bottom of the receiver.
Circa early 1927. There is a 2-digit year code stamped on the bottom of the barrel (under the stock). Bert H.
It means 'Winchester Proofed'! Around 1903 or there abouts, all barrels installed by the Winchester factory started were stamped with a 'WP"within an oval on top of the barrel at the breech end just before the receiver, it was added the the top of the receiver where the barrel screws into it around 1905 when all Winchester's were stamped in both places. If a gun smith outside of the factory ordered a new or different caliber barrel from the factory to replace the 'original' one, it would be shipped with only a 'P' stamped onto the barrel instead of the 'WP'. This is a sure sign that the barrel on any Winchester was a replacement, and though a "Winchester" barrel it was not installed by the factory. Additionally, any rifle returned to the factory for barrel replacement AFTER 1905 would have one installed with the 'WP' on it, irregardless if the gun was originally made BEFORE 1903/05. For collectors this is an obvious indicator that the barrel is a replacement IF the serial number indicates it was manufactured BEFORE 1903. Hope this clears things up for you....................Regards, Marty
