nice one , the fact you have had it for all the years you have says a lot for its meaning i suspect , the 1890-06 styling is what i consider classic

I attended an auction in N.central Iowa on Saturday. I was going to post some of the highlights, as far as prices paid, but never got around to it. Then i saw this post and I think I'll just mention them now. To start off, 3yrs ago I sold a Win. 1906 is very similar shape to the O.P.'s rifle, to a Winchester collector and was paid $400 for it. But from what I saw at the auction, it makes me think the older Winchester's may have settled back a bit. There were 4 1906's there, one w/ the octagon barrel, all went for $350-375 and they were in nice shape, a bit nicer then the one pictured. A mod. 61 that was in v. good cond brought $400. There were 3 mod 12's, 12 ga's and not a one broke $300, and they were in good to very good cond. The surprise,(to me) was a Win. 1897 (97) 16 ga. that was in good cond. in my opinion, and it sold for $550, it seems the 16 ga. shotguns are bringing more $$ for some reason. Of course, there was a mod. 42 .410 that was what I would consider fair cond. and it brought $1600, way too much IMO. A mod 12, 20 ga. that was in v.good cond. and it brought $1050. Some other firearms that I will mention...a Marlin 39 A in exc. cond w/ a 2.5x7 Weaver sold for $525, a Ruger Super Blkhawk 44 mag in exc. cond. (new mod.) $550, and another surprise, for me anyway, was a Hi-Point 9mm compact, NIB, $325, which I considered a bit much. 3 Remington 870 WingMasters, all in v.good cond., $350-375, which I thought was kinda low.One AR in 7.62,that had some extra's added, & 3 10rd. mag's, that a guy brought in for consignment, sold for $2250. Estimated crowd was easily 150 +......so goes the auction's....thought you might be interested. Another 'big one' on Feb 16th. ...we will see how the prices go on that one.

A Winchester like that one taught me a lot about guns. Just working the action on it, and comparing to my Rossi-made copy was a revelation about quality in gun-making. As worn as it was, the Winchester was smooth and solid; the Rossi was gritty and rattly in comparison. (The Rossi was still a decent shooter, though.)

Just my $.02!

What model Maytag?

Seriously, I bet that gun brings back memories every time you shoot it.
Sure does, particularly those early spring days when we would go to the local stone quarry where we could shoot the huge icicles hanging from the ledges. 22 shorts worked fine most of the time and only 25¢ for a box of 50.
