No more amusing or amazing than the “collector” status of late production ’94s.  This Model 250, which I’ve never previously heard of, is a WHOLE lot scarcer than any garden-variety 94.  And it’s even rarer that the box was saved.

It was 50 years ago I bought a brand new Winchester Model 270 .22 pump rifle.  It was the pump version of the Model 250.  It was absolute junk.  Jammed half the time and the quality of materials, workmanship, etc. was terrible.  The Model 250 shown here also looks of the same quality level.  I have a ’94 carbine made in 1965 (.32 special of course).  As far as quality, I really can’t see much difference to a pre-64 version.  It has also functioned flawlessly over many hunting seasons and I’ve take several deer with it.  Still have it of course.  I traded the Model 270 .22 a couple years after I bought it.

Well, you should have held on to it–then you’d have a “collectors item” worth at least $458, or more, probably!

It’s funny as I bought it new at store.  Back then, they sold you a soft case with a rifle and few even thought about the box the rifle came in.  I was unaware the rifle came in a box.  Same with other rifles I bought new at the store.

As for the high bidding, the higher are under 20 previous purchasers. 

As far as the 200 series rifles, there are a few things to note,  all are the same action just different operators. So the pump and lever actions are the same as the semi auto. So they have to be worked in the same manner…fast. Most work the actions to slow and have problems. I have a 200 series rifle I bought in 1967. It still looks almost new and works every time.  Not a 1 MOA rifle ,was never meant to be, but it brings joy to the kids every summer at my learn and shoot safety class. 

 

PS   They are paying to much in the referenced auction.

The 250 is nearly identical to the old Mossburg Palomino.  Difference is, the Palomino works flawlessly.

These went out of production a little over a year ago and were selling for 750ish  new.
