I need to Insure a couple Rifles and need opinions. Also curious if my research is correct, as I've noticed on here not all computer info is always correct.
1st is a Winchester 67 that my Grandpa bought new and gave to my Dad when he turned 13. Dad would have turned 13 in 1938, but I'm guessing it was bought earlier so Grandpa could teach Dad to shoot it first, as I also was taught to shoot it long before I turned 13. If memory serves right, Dad said it cost about 6 or 7 Dollars new. My research shows it was made between May 1934 & late 1935 because of the finger grooves. It will never be for sale but what value for Insurance would you all suggest?
2nd is a 1903-A3 that was bought through the NRA after my Uncle got back from Korea. My research shows it to be a 1942 Remington Ser. 4178xxx
It was sportarized by Bishop's Gun Factory in Warsaw, Missouri in the early 1950's. Never be for sale either, but need value for Insurance? Any idea what the cost through the NRA might have been, or the cost to have one sportarized in early 1950? I wish I would have gotten the history from my Uncle before he passed, but thus is life.
I used to shoot dimes with the 67 at 50 yds when I was younger, and it still would if I could still see like I did back then. LOL
The 03-A3 hadn't been fired since the late 1980's but shot a 1&1/2 in. group at 100yds dead center, but about 2&1/2 in. high. I don't have a range
close to shoot over 100yds, but anyone have an idea what range he might have zeroed at? I'm thinking maybe 300yds, does that sound about right?
Thanks in advance
