Why did the national rifle association begin?

Originated in early 1870s by former Union Army Officers to promote civilian marksman ship training. Many line soldiers during the American Civil War were either poorly trained or had no training with the individual weapons they were issued. Note that at that time, there was no great general hubbub about private firearms ownership by civilians - except in certain locales where race often entered into the equation. The NRA grew to become a Civil Rights promoter and champion of the 2nd Ammendment as well as promoting civilian marksmanship and firearms ownership.

Value of Winchester model 101 serial number k304840?

There are a lot of variables that would go into answering that question; like--grade (trap, skeet, field, pigeon, etc), barrel length, choke, and overall condition. Based on the serial no. I would assume that it is a relatively new one (late 80's maybe.) Trap models still bring great money on the secondary market, sometimes up to $2000. Pigeon Grade and other fancy grades like Presentation or Diomond can bring more than that. Field Grades, depending on choke and condition (and who's interested in buying) can bring anywhere from $500 to $1500. I recently purchased a Field Grade 101 circa 1969 with 26" barrels choked IC and M in good condition for around $700--a pretty good buy, really.

How much is a national rifle association coin made in 1871 worth?

What is the NRA ideology?

The NRA is a highly conservative and republican group.

The NRA is somewhat libertarian in it's ideology, and is a non-partisan organization that is committed to preserving the Bill of Rights of the U.S.Constitution, with a special emphasis on amendment number two, but is also interested in other civil rights when they intersect with the civil rights to keep arms, and to bear arms. The First and Fourth and Fourteenth amendments frequently come up at the present time while advocating for the Second. It is true that there are more Republican than Democrat candidates supported by the NRA at present, but that is simply due to the fact that the NRA finds more Republicans than Democrats interested in this particular civil rights issue. The NRA is more libertarian than conservative, and also has a policy of supporting friendly incumbents against their challengers regardless of the political party affiliation of either.

Due to the closing of the plant in New Haven the Winchester Rifles and Shotguns made inside the United States are in demand like never before and have gone up in value. Americans just due not want shotguns made in Japan with the Winchester name on them. Also the Model 120 which was a cheaper version of the 1300 model was a limited production of only 5000 shotguns. This has made collectors start to take notice of them. Recent sells on the sites such as Guns of America show that the 120 starts at around $250.00 in decent shape and several have sold for over $1000.00. One that was new in the box in a 20 ga. version recently sold for $1800.00 in October of 2008.

An expert appraisal is recommended for higher grades and small gauges.
