    I recently acquired a Winchester model 70 serial# 831xx from the estate of my deceased grandfather. Serial number puts it at 1948 manufacture and I was wondering the worth of this rifle for insurance. What is the full range in price for 50-99% condition, this one was USED and put alot of meat on the table. My grandfather was the original purchaser in '48 or '49. Thanks for any input.

    You did not state the caliber. Common calibers like 30-06 and .270 bring less money. Unusual calibers increase the value. Also, if any modifications have been done on the rifle (after market stock, sights tampered with, stock altered, rebluing, etc.) the value drops rapidly. Collectors want original condition.
