Gun value

7 posts in this topic

I can purchase a winchester model 94 30-30 NRA gun -- Anyone know what that is worth. Ballpark price?

I was going to buy it to hunt with but it may be a collector item -- new and in the box.

I am NOT trying to sell something.

Help?

You can get a rough idea by the Gun Blue book that most libraries have in their reference section.

Something like that, I would not shoot. Worth more in new unfired condition.

You can also google guns or winchester and come up with a few good sites that have guns for sale and some are collector tpye.

I dont know about the NRA guns but I do shoot my PF and DU guns as the value is not much greater than the real value.

Definitely a good call on the Blue Book. Also on the internet. I wouldtry to find out how many of the guns were made for the NRA. Sometimes they produce large runs of guns that, besides looking cool, don't have a lot of collector value. If the number is less that 2000 or so, you might have something. Another thing that will effect collectability is the demand of the gun or if you can find a buyer that collects that specific kind of gun.

Yeah, I did some google work.

It is worth a lot. I told the people to sell it another way -- to a collector. I did not want to take advantage of them and I wanted a brush gun, not a fancy one for the wall.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
