    Value

    New In box - $650
    Used - $275 - $500

    The one thing that ruins the value of the Model 99 in 30/30 is that it is 30/30 and not 250/3000 or 300 Savage or 308 or 243.

    The rimless calibers are more desireable than the 30/30 Winchester and commands a higher price.

    Model 99 A (I) - manufactured from 1920 - 1936
    Model 99 A (II) - Manufactured from 1971 - 1982
    Model 99 B - 1920 - 1936 - take down.
    Model 99 C - 1965 - 1989 - Not made in 30/30 Winchester
    Model 99 CD - 1975 - 1981
    Model 99 DE - Citation Grade - 1968 - 1970
    Model 99 DL - Deluxe - 1960 - 1973
    Model 99 E (I) - Carbine - Manufactured from 1920 - 1936, 22 inch barrel on 30/30, 24 inch barrel on 300 Savage.
    Model 99 E (II) - 1960 - 1989 - not made in 30/30
    Model 99 EG (I) - Manufactured 1936 - 1941, Pre WW II
    Model 99 EG (II) - manufactured 1946 - 1960
    Model 99 F (I) - Featherweight - Manufactured 1920 - 1942
    Model 99 F (II) - Manufactured 1955 - 1973, weight 6.5 lbs.
    Model 99 G - Take Down - Manufactured 1920 - 1942, Checkered Pistol grip stock forearm. Weight 7.25 lbs.
    Model 99 H - Carbine - 1931 - 1942 Barrel Band
    Model 99 K - Manufactured 1931 - 1942, Lyman sight, folding middle.
    Model 99 R (I) - Special large pistol grip stock and forearm.
    Model 99 R (II) - 1946 - 60
    Model 99 RS (I) - Pre WW II - Lyman peep sight, folding middle sight, quick detachable swivels and sling.
    Model 99 RS (II) - 1946 - 1958 Redfield 70 LH receiver sight, blank in middle sight slot.
    Model 99 T - Featherweight - 22 High Power, 30/30 Winchester, 303 Savage with 20 inch barrel, 300 Sav. with 22 inch barrel, checkered pistol grip stock and beavertail forearm. Weight 7 lbs. Manufactured 1936 - 1942
    Model 99 - 358 , Manufactured from 1977 - 1980 in 358 Winchester only!

    So as you can see, it does no good to come on the internet with a model number and a serial number. There is a possibility that there was more than one model with the same serial number. You have to have a book with a picture and a description of the rifle to properly identify it.

    Some models are more desirable than others and some calibers are more valuable than others.

    The one bragging right to the Model 99 was that it was in continuous production the whole way through the Great Depression and the company never went out of business and although the sales might have been slow a couple of those years, they never quit making the Model 99.

    Modern - cheaper - Bolt Action Rifles and newer magnum calibers is the only thing that ended the production of the Model 99.

    You can make a Model 70 Winchester or a Model 700 Remington with a synthetic stock for about 1/3 the price of a Model 99!

    Model 99 C - had a clip and no counter on the side of the action.

    Not all models has a number counter on the side of the action.

    Sometimes the checkering on the stock tells the difference if it was pre war or post WW II, or pre 1960 or post 1960.

    pea shooter,

    Measure the barrel length. Is the barrel round or octagonal? If it is not a carbine, the value in the condition you discribe of 95% is approximately $1,000. Give me the information I requested, and I will try to determine what variation you have. Best regards Kirk

    pea shooter, your gun was made about 1927 and to my knowledge all 30-30 are pre war, a picture would be great. I bought a Savage carbine in 30-30 in 80% condition about 6 years ago at the Las Vegas gun show and I paid $800.00 for it and was thrilled to get it at that price. The 30-30 WCF is much rarer in the model 99 Savage than any of the Savage calibers the 303, the 300, the 22 HP and the 250-3000, therefore to the collector the 30-30 brings more money and not less, notwithstanding the fact it is inferior in power to all the other calibers mentioned with the exception of the 22 HP which is really in a class by itself. I just checked Guns America and there are two model 99s in 30-30 for sale, one is $1250.00 and the other $1850.00.

    There were a bunch of post WW II rifles made in 30/30

    You can ask anything you want for them, that doesn't mean that it is a fair market price.

    Everyone wishes that their gun is rare or special or worth a lot of money, but in this depressed market you have to look at the fact's. A 30/30 Winchester does not bring as much as the other calibers, especially the special ones.

    What special ones? The only model 99 rarer than the 30-30 is the 25-35, 38-55 and the 32-40 respectivly.
