The Cody Firearms Museum owns most of the old Winchester production records. For a fee they will research a particular firearm and issue a "factory letter" giving the original configuration, dates of manufacture and shipping, and, if available, the shipping destination. These letters will add to the value of a gun if it proves that any non-standard features are original factory work or shows that it was ordered by someone of historical importance.
The Cody Firearms Museum has the original factory ledgers for serial numbers 1 - 353,999, and they can provide you with a factory letter at a cost of $60. http://www.bbhc.org/firearms/records.cfm For serial numbers 354,000 - 2,600,000 I can provide the accurate year of manufacture, andin many cases, the month of production. The Winchester dates of manufacture information contained on the websites oldguns.net and armscollectors.com is not accurate, and was based on the flawed works of George Madis. Value information can not be determined without a detailed hands on inspection & evaluation, as there are simply way too many different variables that can affect the collector value. Bert H.

Many people have aftermarket finishes applied to their weapons. Doesn't make the weapon "rare". If you have it lettered by the Cody Firearms Museum as being a factory finish, you need to seek the services of an expert appraiser who specializes in Winchester.
you make them in a factory
For most Winchester models, yes it does. For the older Winchester Models, it can also be used to determine the exact day, month, and year of manufacture, as well as the specific original factory as built configuration (e.g. caliber/gauge, barrel length, trigger type, stock configuration, sights, etc.). The Cody Firearms Museum has possession of all the old original Wincehster Repeating Arms Company records (those that survived).
You'd have to write to the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming to get the factory records & shipping information. The year of manufacture for your rifle is 1889.
Winchester Arms Factory at Noon Time - 1896 was released on: USA: November 1896
Winchester, the iconic American firearms manufacting firm went out of business in March of 2006, primarily because of the intransigence of the labor union representing the machinists in the company's New Haven, Connecticut plant. After its official demise, Winchester, actually Winchester Repeating Arms Company, entered into a licensing agreement with Browning Arms to produce some of its products offsite. See: "East Alton, IL, August 15, 2006 -- Winchester announced today that it has entered into a long-term license agreement with Browning for the manufacture and distribution of Winchester brand rifles and shotguns. "With this new agreement, Winchester is confident that Browning will produce innovative firearms worthy of the Winchester name, continuing a tradition that people around the world associate with the Winchester brand," stated Richard Hammett, President Winchester Ammunition. "We are proud of our heritage as The Gun That Won the West and consider this arrangement as entering a new era for the legendary Winchester firearms brand." [source, http://www.winchesterguns.com/services/press/detail.asp?id=39] The name Winchester is still owned by Olin company. Browning is owned by the highly respected European arms manufacturing conglomerate FN Herstal. FN currently manufacture a complete line of arms for the civilian, police and military markets. The majority of M16's currently in use by U.S. Armed Forces are manufactured by FN and they have a very high quality build. FN because of its subsidiary's agreement with Winchester, has started once again manufacturing Winchesters Model 70 bolt action rifle which was first produced in 1936 and labeled by gun writers as the "rifleman's rifle." So far the quality seems to be far superior to that which came out of the old Connecticut plant and the Model 70 action serves as the platform for FN's highly respected SPR series police tactical rifle. With a purchase price of approximately $1,500, the FN SPR is probably the finest factory built, non-custom rifle available, superior in quality and practical accuracy to Remingtons PSS, 700 action based police tactical rifle.
