Big Larry said Most of these old single shots have taken a lickin and are still tickin, despite the terrible bores.

Thank you everyone. I’m probably going to sell it. Any idea on fair price?

Is the butt stamped “Winchester”?

Usually found as a pretty bad beater. Even then, expensive. I have only seen one that was a good 98%. Most nice ones are restorations being passed off as 98%ers. Mine, pictured, is a beater, and has a bore like a stove pipe. But, the redeeming factor of this rifle is that it has a nice, un cracked, stock. It’s shootable. Big Larry

Mike, according to JWA, the books are wrong about the Winchester marked stocks. The plain ones are the lesser of the two.  Big Larry

Butt is not stamped Winchester but I don’t think it’s supposed to be.

Some have the name WINCHESTER embossed in the butt. Mine is like yours, an early model, with the plain butt. I cannot give you a value, but these generally go for high dollars. They made bunches of them, but their survival rate is extremely low. They were real cheap and therefore not much care was taken with them. Add to that, the ammo of the day ate the bores up. Put it up for sale for offers in our classifieds. Someone here may want one. Big Larry
