Hello - I have a mid to upper grade Winslow Arms .22-.250 rifle I inherited from a collector. It is in like new condition with ivory inserts, jeweled boly & clip, redfield scope, very nice mahogany, etc......

How can I find out it's true value?...as I am considering selling as it's too nice for me to shoot. I see very few of these rifles out there. There are no grade engravings - other than the serial # near the bolt.

TRUE value? That can only be found by listing at absolute auction, & seeing what someone is ready, willing, & able to pay.

All Winslows were custom made. Value depends upon caliber, grade, & style. But, the $4,000-6,000 range may well be possible.

I usually recommend listing guns on this site. But, unusual high end guns often do well at places like Butterfield or Rock Island Auctions.

Depends upon which Model of WINSLOW ARMS CO. Rifle you have.....? Theres 10 differant Models....
For your information WINSLOW ARMS CO. was established in Venice, Florida about 1962. Moved to Osprey, Florida about 1976, and is now in Camden, S.C......This is From Balderson's Antique and Modern Firearms Seventh Edition....Page 632...
If You'll post a Model Number or a complete and total discription...Then We might be able to post a Value...

I greatly appreciate the help! The rifle appears to be a Regimental or Crown Grade. It's a .22-.250. and looks like new...the barrel is also VERY blue. The only manual engraving near the bolt area is "1819". It appears to be the Bushmaster model - as I found a 1992 ad for this rifle being sold on Ebay. This particular rife is quite fancy, but not too fancy to where it's "gawdy" looking. I have pics if it would help. I've been searching hard for what it's worth, but there aren't many Winslow's out there to compare it to.

Blue book lists values (Theirs) for Winslow arms rifles.... Winslow is about 45 miles from my place, and, although they are still open as a retail storefront, I don't believe they are presently making custom rifles....
