Can you hear me crying? What could have been a $1000+ gun is now probably worth about $250 (more or less).
Well it depends on the condition, if it is a long gun or a carbine , or has the saddle ring on the left side. which would be the most valuble. if the rifle is not reblued or the stocks redone and is about 95% condition some collector might pay as high as $800.
That is a very early gun in one of the original calibers for that model. Value is dependant upon originality, condition, and any special order features. Could range from $350 (badly rusted/broken/poorly reblued) to well over $1000 for fine condition. firstname.lastname@example.org
I bought one in decent condition a few days ago for $100. The stock was in good condition, the receiver needed bluing touchup, and the triggerguard needed buffed and reblued
100-500 USD or so
Check the stampings for buffing or rounding.
serial #3435968 was made in January, 1943 and the value can go from $200-700 Depending on condition. Sporterized, reblued, bad barrel or stock condition,are at the bottom of the barrel as far as price.
DO NOT BLUE THE WIN. MOD. 12 SHOTGUN........................PERIOD Win Mod 12 has great collector value. Almost No collector value if gun is blued. BobSells
The reblue, even if factory, destroyed any collector value. As a shooter, it's worth about 100-300 USD, depending on how good the reblue is.
value would depend on overall condition. a picture might show that.............
It was manufactured in 1914, but to assign a value we would need to know * the condition (amount of remaining original finish) * originality (any replaced, repaired or added parts) * the configuration (sporting rifle, deluxe rifle, carbine, or eastern carbine) * any special order features (special sights, engraving, etc) The scope maounts are going to reduce its value unless they are a factory ordered option. Although this does not qualify as an antique by BATF regulations, it would be considered collectable, and unless it is an absolute basket case, its value would be reduced if refinished or reblued. A professional restoration might improve the value, but would cost more than the value of the restored gun.
Depends on originality and condition. Could easily be worth into the thousands of dollars if absolutely original and in collectable condition. If it has been modified or reblued, value drops under $500 fast. email@example.com
'Professionally reblued' does not tell us much. Model 12 shotguns from that time frame were not originally blued using the modern hot-salt bath method. If your gun has been polished and blued using the hot salt method the color and degree of polish will be incorrect and value will top out at $250 as a shooter. If the gun has been heavily polished with markings obliterated, straight edges rounded, etc, the value will be even less. If the gun has been prepped correctly and then RUST-blued, it still might bring $350-$400. firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, it will diminish the value to another collector, but if its sentimental value is greater than its monetary value to you, it makes no difference. It's your firearm, so do what you want with it.
Your rifle was made in 1906. Standard barrels were round or octagonal, 24 or 26". The stock should be straight (no pistol grip). The Blue Book of Gun Values lists it from $1,950 in 98% condition to $350 in 10% condition. "Condition" refers to original condition (not reblued or altered). Add 20% for the takedown vaiation, 30-60% for deluxe models depending on original condition, and @ 20% for calibers other than .30-30 (30 WCF) or .32 Special. You may want to take this one to a very reputable gun shop for examination and appraisal. (Note that the Blue Book prices are retail. If you sell it to dealer he'll need some room to make his profit).
Yes, especially if it is a collectors item type of fire arm.
the 1911pistols have increased over the years. value depends on overall condition. your 1911 Colt was made in 1919. If you look up 1911's in Gunbroker. com, you will find condition and prices.
The value,s I am going to quote are for a rifle that is all original and has not been reblued or the stock refinished.a rifle in only 30% original condition would be valued at 575.00 dollars.this can go as high as one with a 80% original finish,which would be valued at 1,900.00 dollars.If you have a carbine model it would be worth 300.00 dollars more than the stated rifle prices across the board that I listed above.By the way your model 1892 was made in 1902.
re-blue deminishes gun value..................

Many original Winchester model 1892 saddle ring carbines are selling in the range of 1,500 dollars,with a original finish remaining in the range of 50-60%.The rifle specimens are ranging in price from 1,100 dollars on up to 2,000 dollars,depending if the rifle in question has any special order features such as custom wood,checkered wood,different style butt stocks(shotgun style),and a half magazine,this will drive up the value of these fine made Winchester lever action rifles.I advise people to watch and see if the rifles in question appear to show there age(wood finish,and blueing).If they appear worn then this is honest wear that shows thru time and use.If the rifle appears in too good of condition,then at some point in time it has been reblued,or the stocks have been refinished.Asaying goes,if it appears to good to be true,then it usually is.
200-300 USD. Maybe a little more if Colt did the reblue and you can prove it.
That is the patent date, not a birthdate. If that is the correct serial number, it was made in 1894 (2nd year of production). The big problem is that is way too early for the 'NICKEL STEEL' marking you undoubtedly are reading off of the left side of the barrel. That leads me to believe your gun has been rebarrelled at some point, and who knows what else was done. By the way, the caliber is marked on the barrel as well. As for value, that rebarrelling hurts it a whole lot, possibly as much as 50% of its value if it were all original. If it was reblued as well (which it probably was), and especially if this were done anywhere other than the Winchester factory, you are looking at a $350 "shooter." email@example.com
Value will depend heavily on condition, and whether it has been altered, reblued, restocked, drilled and tapped for a scope, etc. A value could be anywhere from $200 to $1,000. You will need a hands on assessment. Take your (unloaded) rifle to a reputable gun shop or a gun show near you.
The value will be mainly determined by engraving. Who did it? Is it factory or aftermarket? Was it special ordered? Any accessories come with it? What type of wood used in the stock? Value range could be 100-1000 USD or more.
It was made in 1939. As for the value, like all Winchesters (and old firearms, in general), its all in the details of its exact configuration and the details of its condition. And most important of all, whether it has been "messed" with (ie reblued, refinished wood, drilled and tapped for scopemount etc. original sights etc.) The question of value is a huge and very complicated one and you would need to have it appraised by an experienced Winchester collector/historian. This will cost you $50 to $100 and you shouldn't sell it to the guy who appraises it after he is done, under any circumstances. If he offers to buy it for his appraised value, then add 30%-50% to the value he gave you and walk!!!! Unless it is a "rust bucket" or a "basket case" (completely used-up), it has a value of between $250.00 (for parts, which could be sold on eBay including the reciever, which would have to be sold on a firearms auction site)and thousands of dollars, depending on the above variables.
