    My book stops much earlier than your serial number but an educated guess would be mid to late 1950's. The pre 64 version which you have ended at about 2,700,000 guns.

    I just noticed a much older thread with a recent post on the 32 spcl almost identical to yours and everyone gave a good explanation. h2oking was right on with his explanation of where the term "special" had come from and the 30-30 compared to the the 32 Winchester spcl.

    Hard to say. Run of the mill 94, in good to excellent condition, goes for around 4 to 5 hundred, most places. Pre-64 94s are worth a great deal more. I'd say between 50 and 100% more. Howsomever, 32 Winchester Special isn't the most popular cartridge around. That will lower the value. So I would guesstimate somewhere between 4 and 8.

    Funky. The spell-check does not like "howsomever", but it accepted "guesstimate".:)

    For the first person - there is no way for sure to identify how much a gun is worth without seeing it.

    My estimates for a field grade - hunting rifle is about $350.00 max

    Your gun would have to be really special for it to be worth anything more then that. A special grade of rifle of something unique like a octagon barrel.

    My neighbors has a 32 Special Winchester lever action rifle and I don't know anyone that would give them more then $250.00 for it.

    The 32 Special had about identical ballistics as the 30 30 Winchester or the 35 Remington.

    They were sold most everywhere and they were not a very expensive rifle when they were new.

    At one time, there were raging arguments over the .32 Special vs. the .30-30, with fans of the former insisting that the .32 was a powerhouse, vastly superior in every way to the "puny" .30-30. Just goes to show that it is human nature to argue.
