    "NRA fine", "excellent" would describe them. If you are considering selling one of those rifles I think Gunbroker is the largest audience. Good pic's showing all areas of the gun well do more than any words. Watch the selling prices for awhile if you want a idea of value.

    Additionally, you might wish to use Flayderman's Guide To Antique American Firearms...and their values as another source of information.

    Two Winnies I've lusted after, this and an 1895 musket in 7.62x54r.

    Besides a few dents in the stock, these look about 95-98%.

    Thanks for the input guys. As I'm sure you are aware, a small difference in condition rating can mean a large difference in value.

    If you are considering on selling/trading your rifles and supplies make sure to post them here so interested parties (yes, me too!!!!) can drool over them, i mean buy them. ;)

    Will do. Although most of the members here don't seem to be interested in, or have as much appreciation for the "good-'ole guns".
    Maybe I could list them as a 'tactical frontier' or 'stage coach defense' edition.:laugh:

    Well there's "Fudd" and there's "classic antiques".

    Mid '70s vintage '94 Winchester= BORING. Early 1895 saddle ring carbine= HAWT ( did I just type that? )

    I love the early Winchesters, in fact I was sorely disappointed in the collection at The Winchester Mystery House when I went there....surprisingly small. ( of course, the house is the attraction...)
