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.

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.

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.

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.
