    I have a model 100 .308 winchester in about 95% or better condition with very few light marks on the stock and one mark on the left rear of the receiver and came from the factory that way. The mark is blued and you can see it but not feel it. I bought this gun new in 1968 and the serial# is 188542. Also, it is drilled and tapped for a scope but no scope and the firing pin recall has been performed. What would the approximate be on this little gem?

    My father had one of these, so I keep an eye on them at gun shows. One thing that seems to make a difference in the price is whether it is "pre-64" or "post-64". As I understand it, in 1964 Winchester retooled and greatly modified their manufacturing processes. Many people seem to prefer "pre-64" Winchesters. With the Model 100, I think you can tell the difference by the stock: Pre-64 Model 100's had conventional checkering on the pistol grip and forend, while post-64s had an impressed basket-weave design.

    Either way, for one in good shape, I never see people asking less that $400 for them, and often quite a bit more. What they actually get, I don't know.

    Just my $.02 - hope it is of use.

    Thanks Lanrezac. This particular gun was manufactured in 1967 according to serial#. I have always liked this gun. The Model 100 is very user friendly. I appreciate your time, thanks.

    The .308 is the most common chambering in that model, and yes the stock was the major difference in the Model 100 pre- to post-64.

    $400-$450 in the condition you describe.
