Winchester model 100

helimanheliman Member Posts: 597 ✭✭✭✭
edited June 2008 in Ask the Experts
I picked up a Winchester Model 100 today at a garage sale. The rifle is in 90% condition. It is chambered in .284 Winchester. The S/N is 97,xxx. I think that makes production in 1965. I don't have pics just yet, but could take some and email them. Are the values really as high as I have seen on GB auctions? Incidently, I paid $250 for the rifle with 2 clips, 2 boxes of shells, and a 4x Bushnell scope on Weaver bases and rings. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated![:)][:)][?]

    Can anyone tell me how to tell a pre-64 from a post-64 in the Model 100. I was under the impression that the basket weave checkering and no checkering was Post-64, with pre-64 having cut checkering.

    I found a model 100 in about 65% condition. But, the thing is is has a short barrel. Did this model ever come in a carbine? As always thanks for your replies.

    I just picked up a model 199 in .284 caliber. Serial number is 855xx. Just curious of a date of manufacturer.

    Did winchester ever make a carbine .308 in this model? Just wondering because mine is 90% plus but does not have the checkered stock and the barrel seems shorter than 22in. (will measure tonight). I would think my stock is original to the rifle except the checkering is not there. Any help. As always thanks for your replies.

    Is there a web site or tel. to call regarding whether the above model has been recalled and repaired as to the firing pin.

    I am guessing that providing the serial number will work.

    thanks

    I have a .284 Pre-64 Model 100. I was wondering what the price range is for these guns. Also, I have 4-clips and I was thinking of selling a couple of them seperately. Seems like I saw someone looking for .308 clips for their M100 a while back and they were going for about 50 dollars. Am I remembering right?

    I posted this same question about a month ago and would like to confirm if the response I received is correct.

    I have a Winchester model 100 in .284 caliber. The serial number is 855XX. What is the date of manufacture? I was previously told the manufacure date was 1963, but it has the basket weaving checkering like those made post 63/64. Mine has checkering just like the one in this auction.

    To say you made a good buy is an understatement. Last fall I bid for and won on GB a Mod 100 in .243 with a Leupold 2-7 scope, rings and base in 95%+ condition. Pre '64 cut checkering,original sights in place, was $700 counting shipping and local FFL transfer fees as I remember. ANY mod 100 that grades above a tomato stake will bring $450. Carbines,.243's and your .284 should go higher. Your extra clip if it's a Winchester is worth $50. Well done! Did you break any fingers getting your money out?

    You done very well on the price. There is a recall on the firing pin on the Winchester 100. Original firing pins are prone to breaking and the new ones have been redesigned for more strength. You should get the new firing pin installed. No charge to you.

    Well, you aren't going to believe it, but a "gun nut" friend of mine offered me $800. What can I say.....SOLD! He knows a lot about 88's and apparently 100's as well and said he was aware of the firing pin recall. It's all news to me though and I appreciate the information. Thanks![:D][:D][:D]
