if your winchester model 101 sporting is a current model(made since 2007)its value is between 800dollars for a gun with 60%original finish,up to 1450 dollars for a shotgun with 90% original finish remaining.
Your rifle was made by Winchester for Sears Roebuck- it is the Winchester 94. Sears sold firearms under their own brand names, such as JC Higgins. Ted Williams, baseball player, permitted his name to be used as a brand on Sears sporting goods. The Sears branded firearms are typically valued at about 20% less than the original brand guns. They are still a very good buy for the money.

This is probably the same as the "Fancy Sporting Rifle" in the Standard Catalog of Firearms. This guide suggests a retail value of $1800 in NRA Good (80% original finish) plus 20% for the takedown feature. If it happens to have extensive factory engraving, it would be a LOT more.
