What is the value of a Winchester Model 1894 Trapper carbine with a 15 inch barrel and saddle ring in extremely good condition?
I hate to give this answer, but whatever a buyer will pay is the current value. As a ROUGH GUESS, the best July '09 value would be $300-500. The availability of ammunition for any particular caliber also has alot to do with its current salability. Some loads are extremely difficult to find and have (at least at gun shows) depressed the value of a fine firearm. Why buy it if you can't find ammo for it?
What is the value of a Centennial 1966 Winchester 30-30 carbine never been shot still in box with all paperwork?
The collector value of your Model 1894 Trapper Carbine can only be assessed by a visual inspection & evaluation (appraisal). Old Winchesters are very much like old classic automobiles... the graded condition, the factory originality, and the specific configuration are the key factors in determining what they are truly worth.
That is hard to say without a detailed description of the carbines overall condition including the bore.These are very highly collected,and a carbine in very good condition with most of it,s original finish could bring a high sume.I would have a Winchester Collectors assoc member give it a appraisel.By the way your carbine was made by Winchester in the year 1919.
Winchester 1892 44wcf ser788609 20 in barrell half magazine no saddle ring is this a trapper model or a special order?
A original Winchester model 1866 fourth model carbine will bring between 3,000-8,000 for a rifle in below average condition,8,000-20,000 for a average condition rifle,and 20,000-35,000 dollars for a above average condition rifle.I would very seriously consider having a member of the Winchester collectors assoc.evaluate and appraise this rifles value.
