Sporting Rifle or Saddle Ring Carbine?

Take Down or Solid frame?

Octagon barrel or Round barrel?

The answers to my questions will provide the correct answer to your question.

You are welcome. 

The price difference between the older “black powder” cartridges and the Smokeless powder cartridges was something that Winchester certainly capitalized on!

I have the 1895 catalog. The prices didn’t change much by today’s standards…but since a $1 a day was basic pay, .50 cents was a half a day’s pay!!

 

1895

Basics

  • Winchester Model 73′ 24″ Octagon – $19.50 (.32, 38 and 44), 38 & 44 bp cartridges – $19.00 (.32 – $16.00) per 1,000 = $38.50, (.32 – $35.50)
  • Winchester Model 94′ 26″ Octagon – $19.50 (32-40, 38-55), 32-40  bp cartridges – $27.00 per 1,000 = $46.50
  • Winchester Model 94′ 26′ Round Nickel Steel – $23.00 (25-35 Smokeless, .30(-30) Smokeless) 25-35 smokeless cartridges – $37.00 per 1,000, .30-30 smokeless cartridges – $38.00 per 1,000 = $60.00 and $61,00.

Being a $1 was basically a day’s wages….

  • $35.50 –  .32 Black Powder
  • $38.50 –  .44 Black Powder
  • $46.50 –  .38-55 Black Powder
  • $60.00 –  .25-35 Smokeless
  • $61.00 –  .30-30 Smokeless

Now how much was a .303 Savage Model 99 in 1899?
