Hello, will someone please put a date to my rifle for me, serial number 803xxx.
I've had this Winchester nearly 20 years, always wondered about it. Now looking, I see Jim Keenan here talking about one:
I found a couple samples at Cabelas and as suspected are somewhat desirable.
709xxx/1912, asking $1299: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/co...73_win1906.jsp
724xxx / 1913 engraved $2999 sold: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/co...win06_buda.jsp
I am not looking to sell my rifle. I would like opinions about it. It doesn't appear to have been sanded on but it's not as dark as most. The blueing is nearly perfect. I don't believe it has been refinished. Check it out:
You can see here there is no wear to the sliding parts and bluing:
Thanks for looking, thanks for the great site, Matt
