1906 condition

I have a 1906 I want to sell off and will be bringing it to a couple dealers.  Before I go, I want to get an idea of value..  I have the bluebook ( our book may be newer than the dealers around here )  and I know they pay 80% of value.


My rifle has little to no blueing..  has a brown patina..   lettering is crisp..  no rust..   no pitting.

It's a smooth forearm in really decent shape no touch up ( made 1909 )

The stock was varnished ..  to the point you can see it with streaks going onto the butt plate edges and some not fully on the wood at the butt end.  The wood has some minor dents, etc .. no gouges.  

Basically other than the blueing,  the sore spot is the stock.

Shoots great ..  

Just not sure where along the line..   what   %  for grading..     I don't like to go off selling a gun w/o an idea of what I should be offered.

Your description of the rifle leads me to believe that the graded condition is < 30%. The vast majority of dealers will not pay 80% of the listed Blue Book value, a more realistic number is 50-60% on a low-end value Winchester. In the current market, I would be very happy to get $300 for the rifle you described.
