I have received from my father his father's Model 94 30-30 Serial No. 74,xxx. I was wondering how to date it and how to value it? This was my grandfathers sadle gun, he spending his entire life as a working cowboy.
In order to accurately appraise that gun , I need lots more info and close up pictures of the rifle from stem to stern. Info needed is Caliber, Barrel Length, Barrel Shape, Markings, Stock type,etc. and since the rifle is an Early Specimen, there are other factors that add to the Value that have to be considered in this. Condition overall and originality of finish are the Main factors.
1896 is Considered an Antique (Pre-148,000 serial #) Gun.
