    A buddy of mine contacted me about selling all of his guns to pay some bills and I have no idea on the values. Guesses would be appreciated.

    Winchester model 70 Featherweight from the late 60's with Weaver scope

    Winchester model 60 22lr, no serial number from pre WWI

    Winchester model 1890 22lr, serial 179309

    Winchester 1897 12ga, SN 381919

    Winchester 1873, made in 1879

    Thanks!

    Hello friends and neighbors // I think these days your best bet is to check the auction sites like gun broker.

    There may be many with zero bids for different reasons.
    Look for firearms in similar condition/age to yours that have actually sold.

    I look for gun stores when I travel and purchase/browse firearms in several states.
    Prices vary greatly depending upon where you are standing.

    The Win. 1873 for instance: pre 1879 is prefered so you have a potential good one. In original condition $2000 and up depending upon many things.

    Around here there is an 1889 year of manuf.for $2000 that has been "cleaned up" both the wood and metal polished. It is still for sale.(pawn and gun store)

    Three months ago I picked up a nonworking 1885 year of manuf. for $450 needed $95.00 in parts from three sources and has not been "cleaned up". It has a few dings but I'm satisfied.(pawn and gun store)

    Good luck with the search
