You can contact the Records Office of Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. The Cody Firearms Museum holds the records of 3.5 million individual Winchester firearms and many LC Smith and Marlin firearms.

Information that may be in a record includes the date the gun was received into the warehouse, the configuration of the gun, and the date the gun shipped out. The company to whom the gun was sent may be available for very late Model 1873s and 1886s and most of the run of the Model 21. There are no records for the Models 42, 12, 54, or 70.

There is a charge for Factory Letter information but this and any other questions should be answered by contacting the Records Office.

Winchester 1894/94 Serial Number List Determining date by serialization has become confusing as it has been determined by the staff of the Cody Firearms Museum that previous work by George Madis is incorrect. This is not due to the quality of work performed by Mr. Madis, but by the questionable data provided to him. The following list includes the data held at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody Wyoming (CFM) and the previously understood figures (Madis). It is up to the collector to make the best use of this data that they can.

SOURCE: Purchased a Winchester rifle at a sale, serial

The best way to find this out would be to take it to a Gun Dealer or search the Winchester site and find a match. It is usually stamped on the barrel but if that has worn off your best bet is a gun dealer. Unfortunately only Winchester or the federal government could tell you anything about it by the serial number. Very few people have that kind of access.

The best way to determine the market is to search the Internet or E-bay for your rifle and see what prices are offered.

What is the year and value of Winchester 1890 22 short in good condition. serial # 644229


Hello, Mike -

1. I took the liberty of re-categorizing your question from Optics (binoculars, gun sights, lenses, etc.) where it landed, to Firearms.

2. I doubt most who volunteer to answer questions on Fixya.com are qualified to provide you a value for your rifle. For one thing, an appraiser would need to look and handle the rifle, which is a major challenge online. :) (Note: My now late father, a licensed auctioneer, used to sell the firearms of his friends who had passed away for their widows and I know he needed to look over all of the firearms in-person.)

3. As for the year your Winchester 1890 was manufactured, you are fortunate in that the Winchester Repeating Arms company provides a PDF document (you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader software (free) installed) listing the models of firearms and range of serial numbers and what year they were manufactured. This is the link:
http://www.winchesterguns.com/content/dam/winchester-repeating-arms/support/faq/serial-number-reference/Winchester-Manufacture-Dates-by-Year-2012-Scanned-Documents.pdf

Easier than looking through the lists on the Winchester Repeating Arms document, though, the database offered by the website for Antique Guns and Collectible Firearms and Militaria Headquaters
(home page: http://oldguns.net/ ), Winchester Dates of Manufacture:
http://oldguns.net/sn_php/winmods.htm
I think you can figure it out. :)

4. First, your local public library may hold a recent book or two listing estimated values of firearms. One title which is updated regularly is The Blue Book of Gun Values. Note: Using your local public library and its collections represents your taxpayer dollars at work!

Second, read the questions and answers about gun appraisers here:
http://forums.gunbroker.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=311759

Second, you can conduct a search using your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, etc.) using the following search phrase:
firearms appraiser
OR
firearms appraisals

Third, the International Society of Appraisers provides a database which can be searched. This is the link:
https://www.isa-appraisers.org/find-an-appraiser
Enter the word firearms in the search box.

The American Society of Appraisers offers a similar database:
http://www.appraisers.org/find-an-appraiser
In the ASA Specialty search box (only), choose Firearms.

Personal opinion: To find an appraiser to value your rifle, I suggest you do not go to a firearms dealer, who may opt to purchase your rifle outright, since he / she may have a vested interest in the value of your rifle. Be prepared to pay a fee for an appraisal.

Best wishes.

Need to know if a rifle I want to buy is legal, Marlin Rifle 22 L R Model 60 LETTER V MADE 1961[AUGUST]1962


Legal in what way? If is stolen only the police would have the serial number flagged. If is is .22 long rifle it is a restricted firearm, so depends on the laws wherever you live. In most countries it needs to be registered.The limit for antique weapons is 1896, and in such cases, the ammunition needs to be obsolete, or the weapon is a smooth bore musket. None of that applies to this weapon.

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.
