That is a beautiful firearm. It is very probably worth quite a bit....I am not qualified to say but there are a number of them up for auction at Gunbroker.com. $2000+ is a common asking price. What do they actually sell for?
The rifle is a robust action and the .348 Win is the most powerful of the rimmed lever gun cartridges. The Model 71 is the only rifle ever chambered for it.
The rifles are often rechambered for very heavy duty wildcats like the .450 and .500 Alaskan.
