    How to value a Winchester Rifle

    Hi All,
    We are retired folks who run a small farm in the Puget Sound area. We are in the process of going through family treasures and found a rifle we would like to know the value of.
    How do we proceed? I have researched a little on line and can't find any information.
    It is a Winchester Model 94 30 W.C.F.
    Serial # 1196879
    1942

    Marble "Peep" sight from Michigan
    King Rear sign pat August 1533



    Thanks,
    Luke

    Could check out completed auctions on www.gunbroker.com and get an idea what they are actually selling for these days.
    I am assuming 20" barrel, no checkering, not US marked, and no saddle ring.
    What is the overall condition of the wood, and finish remaining on the steel?
    13th Edition Blue book page 2021 ranges it from $825 in new condition (100%), down to $200 in (10% original finish).
    Maybe add $30 for the sight?

    War production could add to the value if it has unusual markings.
    A lot were used by factory guards, fire departments, postal service, etc.

    I'm sure there is a Winchester 94 collectors forum somewhere.

    He said he was retired. I didn't want to try and tell him how to post pictures. ;)

    A lot of retirees are more tech savvy than many millenials. (I'm not any of the aforemention: retired, tech savvy or a millenial)

    Numerous factors...have sling swivels been added? Is the buttplate original or a pad installed? Is the factory rear sight still there or removed when the Marbles was installed?
