I did a little trading today and came out with approx a 1976 (just going by the serial number) Winchester mod 94 Trapper carbine (16" barrel) with a saddle ring. I'd call it 95% (to be conservative, probabably 98%) or better. Not box. Anybody have any idea what it's value is?

.

I sold my pristine .30-30 Winchester 94 (ca. 1978) Trapper, with a receiver peepsight two years ago for $450.

IME, M-94 Trapper's are slightly more valuable than standard Carbine's.

Wouldn't that be one of the pre angle eject ones that were prone to the receiver putting and could not be re-blued by conventional methods? If so the value would be more like $350 in my area if still in good condition.

Not angle eject, it's not what you are describing. The finish is not the cheap oil finish, one would almost think it is a Miruku gun, from the finish. Nice finish one the blueing and wood, maybe even like a Browning finish. It's a New Hampshire gun.

Actually, it should be the receiver as described by Protoolman. Some held the original bluing better than others. I have the same gun, and although many of these have bluing issues, including mine, they are, in my opinion, worth quite a bit more than a conventional 20" carbine of the same era. A good one should go for $500- $600.

And yours is nice. 8)


btw...I pulled this from an article I found in my research

Winchester, to the end, was constantly re-evaluating and experimenting with finishes. Many late model factory experimental specimens (and so marked) that are found in private collections are examples of different polishing and coloring techniques that may or may not have proven acceptable.

screw gunbroker. $495 at the LGS, and he prices guns to sell, not collect dust. In a pistol caliber maybe a touch higher.
I'd be happy all over to get five benjys for a clean but fired, no box 30-30 Trapper. I know guys who have sat on them for years trying to get more.
