I’m curious about this… I believe I have the answer but I would like to know what you guys think.  As a collector of Winchester rifles is the Antique ( Manufactured in or before 1898 ) more collectable than Vintage rifles. Thank you, Angel

Antique, of course, because they aren’t subject to ATF restrictions…so far!

Clarence, I thought as much. I also prefer the Antiques from the late 70’s and early 80’s. Angel Wink

Many of the guns I’m interested in were not manufactured before 1898 and I don’t mind doing a 4473 or a C&R transfer to get the guns I want.
