hello, I am looking to get a general value for my wincester 1894 model 30-30, the serial number is 1250872
I think it was manufactured in 1940 or 1941 but I may be wrong
This gun retains probably 80%-90% of its original finish, very good bore and mechanics Metal butt plate, smooth actions complete working order
Cons:
Small scuffs on side of receiver housing. They feel smooth but look bumpy, not sure what caused this blemish. one nick on the stock.

Any help on determining the value or a ballpark value would be greatly appreciated. Iam not a collector but am helping my aging father get rid of some of his possessions. Thank you all.

According to the Winchester Arms Collectors Association dates you gun was made in 1940. The wood looks a little odd to me sort of like it has been bleached a bit. They are usually darker and have some varnish on them. These look cleaned more then sanded. The metal is very nice except for the blemishes on the left side. It looks like something corrosive got left on the gun in those spots. The caliber should be marked as 30WCF. It was changed to 30-30 shortly after WWII. The model 94 is the most often encountered Winchester lever gun. Guns from this era can be found in near perfect condition. Your gun with the cleaned wood and blemishes should sell in the 500 to 600 dollar range.

The serial number identifies it as a November 1940 production Carbine. It should have a "W" stamped below the serial number.

I suspect that the blemishes on the left side of the receiver frame were caused by someone using an abrasive object in an attempt to clean up corrosion caused by blood getting on the blued surface. I personally would ask $800 for it, and accept no less than $750 for it.
