Could you please check your information and rephrase this question? So far as I can tell Winchester never made a model 1917 or a model 9330

These were made for the US and Great Britain in 1917 and 1918, but there was no "target model" just standard infantry rifles. The action is popular as the basis for many custom rifles. Check for any markings that may identify the gunsmith who converted your gun.

The Model 1917 U.S. Rifle made by Winchester is worth about $800 to $1000 in excellent condition with all original parts. Much less if it has parts from Remington or Eddystone and has gone through an aresenal refurbish. this link should tell you it was made in September of 1917.

The "Model of 1917" is more commonly called the 'P17 Enfield' and was a standard US service rifle in WW-1 and in some arenas of WW-2. Winchester was just one of the makers, others being Remington and the arsenal at Eddystone. Would need to know the complete markings on either rifle to go further.

If all the parts of your Winchester model of 1917 have the correct letter W on them,and the rifle in question retains the better part of the original blueing and a good bore.Then the value will be between 550-795 dollars,depending on the condition of the stock and metal.

With out a serial number I cannot say exactly when your model of 1917 Winchester was produced.I can say that Winchester produced 545,511 rifles between 1917-1919 for the U.S. gov. The going value of these rifles in fine condition have been selling for between 600-800 dollars as long as all parts are stamped Winchester,and the bore is in good condition.

Remington made 646,000 US model of 1917 rifles for the goverment during world war I. Winchester and eddystone also produced rifles for the U S goverment during that time,with eddystone being the largest producer.

Need a detailed description of all markings/features, finsih, condition, box, papers, accessories, serial number, caliber, etc..

Your Winchester rifle which is the US model of 1917 was made by Winchester in November of 1917.these rifles have been selling for between 400-750 dollars if the numbers all match and they are marked with the Winchester code on all parts including the stock and barrel.I have a fine example that was made by eddystone in may of 1918,and have gotten all the correct parts to complete the rifle ,along with the oiler bottle and pull through bore brush,which fits into the stock.If you have a correct bayonet that matches you could get 125.00 dollars more than the above quote.

there is no history. both colt and S&W made the 45 cal D/A 1917 revolver during (and before) WW1..............

After WW1; the US entered WW in ended in 1918. The US built copies of the British MK1's and the French Renault after the war. The Renault became the standard model for US tanks, called the Model 1917 tank.

The 2200 was only sold in Canada. Never in a US catalog that I am aware of.

The Springfield 1903 was the standard weapon of the US servicemen in WW1. However, since it was only produced at Springfield Arsenal ( Rock Island didn't come on line until 1917) only the US Marine Brigade used them. All other US troops were armed with the "U.S. Rifle, Caliber .30, Model of 1917", manufactured by Winchester, Remington, and Eddystone.

Value of any firearm is based on exact make, model, condition and originality. A Model 1917 .30 cal rifle could be worth $500-$1000, depending on condition.

No collector value. The 1917 was never chambered in 357 magnum.DO NOT SHOOT IT UNTIL A GUNSMITH CHECKS IT OUT!If you want to know how it left the factory, you will have to get it lettered.

A US Army NRA musket in fair values at $800 The US Army musket in fair at $850.

That would depend on the person buying your rifle.I have seen sporterized model 1917 rifles go for between 300-600 dollars depending on the job done.I will say that handloading would be the only way to load for your rifle chambered in 30 newton.These dies are not cheap to do this job.

If you mean the US Rifle, Caliber 30, Model of 1917, manufactured by Remington, these were produced only in 1917-1918.

The Winchester Model 91 was actually not marketed in the US. The gun was built for Winchester by Laurona in Spain for distribution in Europe during the late 1970's. Values go all over the place, but $700 will be a good ballpark.

The Blue Book Value on the Model 94 Winchester Classic is as Follows: 100%...............$32598%................$28595%................$23590%................$200 However with Winchester closing up shop in the US it may bring a slightly higher price.
