    :confused: Hi, I hope someone can help me get a ballpark value on a Winchester. I know almost nothing about guns, so please bear with me; here is what I DO know about this Winchester:

    30 WCF Model 1894 30-30
    Serial #14149xx
    manufacture date 1947 - 48???

    Also, the hammer, trigger and lever look like nickle or chrome instead of black like others I've seen - what does this mean?

    Thanks for your time reading my post, and for any information, comments, or advice.

    Sorry, can't tell much from the pictures but it might just be an unusual re-finish job. If it's a re-fin the value for collectors will be pretty low. There were some Commemorative models that had unusual finishes but I don't think they were made in the '40's. FWIW...

    Hello,

    It has most definitely been refinished (and rather poorly). The partial serial number indicates that it was manufactured in very early 1947.

    The value is <$300.
