    I own this original condition 1960 Winchester Model 94 and am thinking about selling it. I don’t hunt with it and it’s just sitting in my safe. I would like to try and get an idea of what its worth. The first three serial numbers are 245xxxx. The s/n history chart shows it’s a 1960 model. It in very good condition- no pitting or rust. I do not have the original box. I did look on GB and I am seeing pre 64’s anywhere from $750-1000.
    Any thoughts on value appreciated. Thanks.
    Here are a few pics-

    If you look at closed auctions, you will see plenty of vanilla .30-30 50s/60s Pre-64 Model 94s that actually sold for $500-$600. $750-1000 sounds like high asking prices, rather than actual selling prices for a gun like yours.

    My guess it’s worth what one is willing to pay based on overall condition. Your feedback is appreciated.

    True.
    A lot of asking prices never get paid on GB and the auctions just rotate around and around.

    I’ll say if you want to actually sell it 500$ is where you’ll be. If its for insurance then I’d put 700$.
    The market right now stinks.

    ps .. if its been reblued and or refinished the value drops dramatically.

    My thoughts exactly. Ask $550. Take $500.

    The early 1894's bring in the $1000 range but a 94 Eastern Carbine in 30/30 is too common for the collectors and with the low market you'll be lucky to get $500. A friend had one as new in .32 Special that took over a year of advertising to get $600. Good luck.
