    Hello, I recently found an old rifle in my attic. It's a Winchester Model 75 with target sights, 28 inch version. It has a button in a relief on the left side for ejecting the cartridge. The rear sight is a hole-in-disk, the front is a globe with insert. The rifle itself is in really good condition, no deep scratches, no rust on the gun, with a once over it could look nearly new. The only problem is that I can't find it's bolt. Is it worth anything without said bolt? 1st post here, thanks :)

    Without the bolt it's just a parts gun and worth whatever a parts dealer will pay. My guess is $25 to $35.

    +1 to Xracer. That gun is definitely worth more than $25. Take Xracer's advice and look for a used bolt.

    That button on the side is to release the magazine (clip) from the rifle. Does your gun still have the magazine? It alone is worth $25.

    Assuming you have no idea where the gun came from I would suggest you look further in in every crook and cranny of your attic for the bolt. It is somewhat of a common practice for a person to take the bolt out of their guns so a thief won't steal the gun. I know guys who go to Africa that put their bolts in their luggage and just the the rest of the gun in a hard case.

    Also your gun in my opinion still has a lot more value than just a parts gun and I would guess in the 2 to 3 hundred dollar range.

    A bolt for a W75 or W69A is likely to go for $100 to $125, if you can find one.

    Welcome!
    Muddober is correct. The Model 75 was a fine mid-weight target .22 in it's day, and still makes a fine squirrel rifle, though a touch heavy for all day carrying.

    After finding 'era-correct' sights and accessories for my two 75's, the $300 'parts price' actually could be a bit LOW for the set up mentioned in your first post if the current sights are of good quality. (My 2ยข)
