I purchased a Winchester model 1894 30-30 today and wondering about its history


Hello, Billy -

You are fortunate in that the Winchester firearms company provides a list of firearms manufacture dates and serial numbers.

This is the link to the Winchester Repeating Arms company home page:
http://www.winchesterguns.com/

You will see the Support link near the upper right of the home page: Choose that and then look for the Frequently Asked Questions link:
http://www.winchesterguns.com/support/faq.html

On the FAQs page, scroll down to #8, "What year was my Winchester manufactured? Click or tap on that link.

You will be taken to a web page with the heading:
Winchester Firearms Manufacturing Dates by Serial Number and Year; 1866 through the early 1990s.

Scroll down that page until you see an image with typed columns. Click or tap on that.

You will then be taken to a PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader - free software) document which you can search through to find the year your firearm was manufactured.

On the first page of the PDF document, you will find toll free phone numbers you can choose to call for additional information.

The lists for the Model 94 (1894) begin on page 9 of the PDF document.

Best wishes.

When was my winchester model 1895 serial number228238 made birdseye maple stock


Hello, Peter -

I suspect so many other Winchester firearms owners have asked the same kind of question as yours that the company created a website listing serial number ranges and the years the firearms where manuafactured, so owners could look up the information themselves.

This is the link to the web page, Winchester Firearms Manufacturing Dates by Serial Number and Year, 1866 - Early 1990s:
http://www.winchesterguns.com/support/faq/date-your-firearm.html

On that page, move your cursor to the smallish image of page with columns. Click or tap on that image to be taken to the full PDF document listing the serial number ranges and manufacturing years.

The list for the model 1895 is on Page 11.

Best wishes.

I am trying to find out year of manf. and value of my savage mod. 29a 22 pump serial num 52*** any ideas


Hello, Dennis -

Some firearm manufacturers have information available on their websites so that firearms owners can determine the age of their gun. Winchester is one such manufacturer.

I do not find that information on the website for Savage. This is the link to the home page:
http://www.savagearms.com/

However, Savage Arms company does have a web page where one can fill out a form to send a request for information via email:
https://savagearms.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

On that form, I suggest you choose the Support Category of "Historical Request."

As for a valuation of your firearm, I do not know if you reside in the USA, where I am most familiar with reputable appraisal sources. If you do not reside in the USA, then, I suggest you visit your local public library and ask a reference / information librarian to help you find a list of reputable firearms appraisers. I am a librarian by profession.

To find a firearms appraiser, I suggest you use your favorite search engine (I use Google) and enter the following search phrase:
firearms appraiser

Plus, use the International Society of Appraisers (ISA) web site to find a member who appraises firearms:
http://www.isa-appraisers.org/
Choose the Find An ISA Member link near the top of the page. Then, on the Find An ISA Member page, enter the word firearms in the Find box. Leave the location box blank for the widest possible search.

Compare the lists of firearms appraisers - the list you compiled with your search engine search and the results of the ISA search.

In the USA, several things to consider about a firearms appraiser:
* Is the person accredited by either the American Society of Appraisers, the Appraisers Association of America, the International Society of Appraisers, or the American Gunsmithing Institute?
* Is the appraisal business a member of the Better Business Bureau?

I am the daughter of an NRA approved marksmanship coach who also was licensed to sell firearms.

Best wishes.

I have a Winchester 30-30 with the number 4893370


Hello, Mark -

What do you need to know about your Winchester .30-30? Are you wishing to learn what year the rifle was manufactured? If so, the Winchester firearms company has records of the firearms they manufactured and so that you can identify the manufacturing year.

Go to this Winchester web page:
http://www.winchesterguns.com/support.html

Look along the left sidebar until you see the link for Date Your Firearm. Left click on that link. There is a link to a PDF (Adobe Reader) document with date ranges and serial numbers.

I have a small frame 7 shot 22 Cal. break top H&R revolver. I was told my grandfather carried it in WWI. Serial# 371177. I would like to know the manufacture date and if it was an Army issue.


James

Decoding H&R serial numbers is not easy and it takes up quite a bit of the H&R book as different models usually have seperate serial number series. gererally speaking there were three types of serial number series.
Pre 1905 (1904 and before) which were more like batch numbers and usually ran from 1 to 99,999. on some models there was a different series every year.
Post 1904 (1905 to 1939) one single series starting at 1 and going into the middle 6 digits (some third model auto-ejecting revolvers have been observed with number in the 800,000 range.
Ift here does not look like there are any markings on the left side of the barrel other than the caliber this would be the premier model fitted with extra cost oversize grips and 6 inch barrel. during the same time (1925-1934)frame H&R offered this revolver as the H&R TARGET (aka model 766) the only difference was H&R Target was marked on the barrel. by the time the premier model was fitted with a longer barrel and oversize grips the cost was about the same for the two models. the offering of the H&R Target model was just another way to try to sell more revolver. factory serial numbers are not available for this model so i believe this revolver was manufactured before the H&R Target was introduced in 1924 (most likely 1920 to 1923)
below is information of both models.

H&R PREMER SECOND MODEL SMALL FRAME TOP BREAK R.F. & C.F. ----------1905-1941
Small fame double action top break revolver with double top post barrel latch; calibers and cylinder capacity, 22 rimfire-7 rounds, 32 S&W, 5 rounds; automatic cylinder stop; standard finish Nickel with case harden hammer and barrel latch; standard barrel length 3 inches, with 2, 4, 5 and 6 inches available as optional; HAS CALIBER MARKINGS ON LEFT SIDE OF BARREL WAS MANUFACTURED FOR SMOKELESS POWDER CARTRIDGE PRESSURES.
There has not been enough data gathered on serial number to try to come up with a serial number range for the different variations.
First Variation, model name & caliber marked on left side of barrel, patent dates 5-14-89, 4-2-95, 4-7-96---------------1905-Only
Second Variation, model name & caliber marked on left side of barrel, patent dates 4-2-95, 4-7-96-------------------1906-1908
Third Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel, patent date 10-8-95-------1909-1913
Fourth Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel, no patent date, state not spelled out in address (MASS)---------1914-1915
Fifth Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel same as 4th except different font used in barrel markings----------1914-1915
Sixth Variation, caliber only marked on left side of barrel. State name in barrel marking spelled out (MASSACHUSETTS)-----1916-1924
Seventh Variation, new grip frame, there is no step down for the grip panels to fit into-----1925-1942
After 1930 listed in catalogs as; PREMIER No. 30 .22 Rimfire 7 shot & PREMIER No. 35.32 S&W 5 shot
VALUE: 100%=$265 60%=$75 Add 10% premium for blue finish; 20% premium 4", 5" or 6" barrel; 20% premium for 22 rimfire caliber; 10% premium for 7th variation
If this is a top break it is a H&R Premier model manufactured in the 1924 to 1930 era or one of its variations. if it is a solid frame model it is a model 1906 or one of its variations manufactured in the 1932 to 1937 era. without a picture or knowning the exact markings i can't give you an exact model.
1940 and after letter codes used to denote year of manufacture. starting with A in 1940 and going to BC in 1986.
Caliber markings on the side of the barrel ALWAYS indicate 1905 or after manufacture. when H&R made the switch to smokeless powder in 1905 they started marking the caliber on the left side of the barrel of all their handguns. no caliber markings = black powder, caliber markings = smokeless powder.
Please keep in mind that H&R did not always obey their own rules and there are exception to every rule. during 1890 though 1904 H&R was manufacturing so many top break revolvers they starting using a letter code after 100,000 had been reached. these letter code were stamped along with the serial number on the bottom of the top strap (the cylinder had to be removed to see this location).
Hammerless Bicycle models (1899-1920). the caliber markings and 6 digit serial number indicate it is a second model and if in good condition it should be safe with modern ammo. the bicycle hammerless (small frame, 2 inch barrel) is serial numbered in the same series as the regular small frame hammerless model.

How do you determine weather a 700 is long or short action


there are three lengths of action (not including the Model Seven's lightweight action, which is even shorter than the 'standard' short action). There is the short action for cartridges up to 2.800 in (71.12 mm) in overall length like the .308 Winchester cartridge family, the standard action for cartridges up to 3.340 in (84.84 mm) in overall length like the .30-06 Springfield and .300 Winchester Magnum cartridge families and the long action for magnum calibers exceeding 3.340 in (84.84 mm) in overall length like the .300 Remington Ultra Magnum and .375 Holland & Holland cartridge families.
