  Duane,

 Welcome new member and first post. The 94 you posted is 30-30, with ammo easily purchased the value of the gun depends on it’s function. Does it feed and fire accurately? What’s the condition of the bore? Is there any non factory machining on the front of the carrier? T/R

There does not appear to be any non factory machining on the carrier, there is wear on the carrier. It feeds pretty good but no one has attempted to fire it in about 20 years or so.

  On picture 4568, the far left side of the picture on top of the carrier I see a small cut or bevel. Is that standard? T/R

My father in-law and I can only see what looks like normal wear on parts. that looks like where the bullet would make contact, and the bore looks good, no pitting.

Hello Duane,

Depending on what source of information you used to determine the year of manufacture, you most likely did not find accurate information.  With the serial number, I can provide the exact month and year it was manufactured.

As for the rifle itself, it is what most collectors refer to as a “semi-deluxe” Sporting Rifle.  The tang sight was added after the fact, and to remove the visual interference, the original barrel mounted 22-H rear sight was removed.  Your pictures show a rifle that was used for its intended purpose, and has the commensurate wear to the external factory finish.  Based on its graded condition, the value is approximately $1,500.

I would call this a plain pistol grip gun unless there is checkering I can’t see.  A semi deluxe to me has plain wood, a pistol grip and checkering.  It was made sometime in 1925 but Bert can narrow that down.
