A few more pictures would help us evaluate the gun.  Take some full length pictures that show the wood and the receiver.  If the gun is from 1931 I don’t think you can letter this gun.  A complete serial number is needed to know the build date.  Unless you got your data from this website.

Welcome, Justin! 
Polishing room records are available for your rifle so you will be able to learn when the serial number was applied to the receiver. Ledger records are not available so a letter would have very little information.
Very nice rifle from what we can see, if it is mechanically sound it most certainly may be used for hunting with modern ammunition.

Here are the additional pictures;

This is a standard Model 94 Sporting Rifle.  This rifle was manufactured during the time period when the bluing on the receiver frames flaked & wore terribly, and as a result the nearly totally bare receiver frame is expected.  Overall the rifle looks nice, and has long as is it mechanically sound, if can be used and shot with any modern factory loaded ammo.

Thanks Bert 

  

You are welcome.  

The issue you were having was related to the file sizes of the pictures.  It is best to use a program to edit (crop & resize) each picture before posting them.  As you can see in the pictures I posted for you, I reoriented them and cropped them.

Thank you Bert , what do you think it is worth? 

  

Because it is a 26-inch octagon barreled Rifle in original (unaltered) condition, it will have interest and value to those that collect Winchester Model 94s.  Exactly how much it is worth cannot be determined until Cash & the Rifle change hands.  If I was selling the rifle, I would put a $1,700 price tag on it, and see how much interest it generates.
