    Bert,

    Is there any way to date (approximate) a model 37 Winchester shotgun? I know that they do not have serial numbers, but what about "red letters" or just "Winchester" on the bottom of the receiver.

    Mine has nothing on the receiver, would that mean an earlier gun?

    My dad is passing down an 1881, model 1873, Winchester, 38-40 to me. It is a family heirloom. I was told that it has never been fired, but am unsure. It appears to be that way and is in 98% condition. and has all the paper work from my great grand father. What is the rough value, without seeing it. I will try to get you a picture asap. I was going to give it to the Cody museum if my son doesn't want it. That is a long way off though. I would like to get an expert evaluation on it. If you cannot do it, whom should I take it to for an evaluation. I was referred to you by everyone in the GD forum.Oakie

    You seem to be a Winchester man, I am curious as to what my 1894 30-30 Made in 1958 would be worth with a 98% origanal condition? Is'nt pre-64 worth more for some reason? Thanks

    Now that you have had time to look it over, what is your take on the book that you purchased titled,
    "Winchester Shotguns" by Dennis Alder and forwarded by R.L. Wilson?

    I am going to look at a 1892 in 32-20 tommorow is there anything I should look for. I seen it a few months ago at a distance and it looked real nice. I work with the guy and he had taken it to Vances a local gun shop to have it appraised and they said it was worth 1500.00. So I seen the guy today and asked him if he thought about having it letterd and he said that he was probably going to sell it, no use for it (his father in-law left it to him) he offered to sell it to me for 1000.00. I know very little about winchesters but I thought it was a very good deal. All I know right know is caliber octagon barrel, crescent butt plate. Should have pictures tommorow any help would be greatly appeciated. Thanks

    Question for you.

    How much do you think the box adds to this auction?

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=316615152

    I have been watching these guns on GB for 9 years now, this is only the second box I have seen. The gun itself imo is not in that great of shape. I have seen better for a 1934 model.



    Edit:

    This thing is going above and beyond what I thought it would do. The last boxed gun, another 1934 model 68, was in much better shape and ended just above $800.

    Bert, in a previous thread about the Winchester threaded barrel, would you mind telling what the give away is to it being non factory?
    Is a real one marked in some manner?
