Winchester Model 100

Winchester Model 100 .30-30 On the gun it says Ted Williams edition. Manufactured Sears and Robeuck Company. This
gun is in 100% perfect condition, to include the blueing and the wood stock.

Is this a good .30-30 and what would it be worth? Thanks.

fun gun...

I got a 284 on the model 88 (lever) and 243's in the 88 and the 100... and a 308 in the 100...

there is some collectors value in that gun... but they're a fun shooter!

It's a good gun,ehjoy!

The Winchester 100 is a semi-auto rifle. I'm pretty certain it was never chambered in .30-30.

Is the gun you're talking about a lever action?

If so, it's made on the Model 94 action platform.

Good guns. If they weren't, Winchester wouldn't have sold something like 6 million of them over the last 102 years.

Model 100

I saw your post. The model 100 is a Winchester 94. I bought on new many years ago. Winchester got the bright idea to go to aluminum receivers to save weight and money and a lot of old fogies like me wouldn’t buy on, so we bought the Sears product. I doubt that your Model will last much more than 100 years with good care.

Winchester 100 in 308

Hi All - A friend of mine has a Winchester Model 100 in 308. It was bought in the 65 era. The serial number is 117995. Could someone give me an idea of the value of this firearm? I was thinking around $350 but wanted to have another opinion. It may be pre 64 but I do not have a book,. I included the serial number if anyone does have a book.

Thanks

Chief

The Winchester Model 100 was never chambered in 30-30. The 100 was made in 243, 284, 308 and 358 only.

Ted Williams M100..

go to the egunpaarts website. They have a cross-reference file for
who made what for whom.
(Locate the Sears M100 should confirm its Winchester M94 parentage)

If in good condition and if the selleer will allow a gunsmith to inspect, aadn report is good then buy it. If you aaare in the maarket for a 30-30.

Actually, the Win. 100 was never chambered in 30-30 OR .358.

The only other "issues" I know of is --don't loose your clip-- getting impossible to find replacements, especially if you have a 284 like mine.

Ok, some confusion cropping in here...

It appears the gentleman has a Ted Williams Model 100, which is a rebadged Winchester Model 94 levergun marketed through Sears. His gun chambered in the rimmed .30-30 Winchester, which is right proper for the levergun.

That's opposed to the Winchester Model 100, which was a gas-operated semiauto rifle, chambered for rimless rounds like the .308 Winchester.

Next?

There are (2) distinct different model 100's involved in this thread

The Sears Ted Williams Model 100 in the OP, is a lever action rifle made by WINCHESTER and rebadged for Sears, and is basically a Model 94 in 30-30 caliber lever gun, the classic design we all know and love

The Winchester model 100 is a different gun altogether, not sold by Sears, and has the Winchester logo on it, and is a bona fide Winchester model gun, and a semi-auto made by Winchester, and sold through Winchester dealers nationwide, not by Sears

for obvious reasons- to correct it

Winchester 94 and the knock-off house brand Sears Ted Williams Model 100 are both lever action 30-30's, identical guns, I own one of each, and can post pictures of the gun stamped model 100 if you want to see it for yourself

Winchester Model 100 is a semi automatic rifle, totally different gun, look it up in any Blue Book

Winchester model 100 does not equal Sears Ted Williams model 100, they are 2 completely different animals

I was doing a search on Model 100 and this ERRONEOUS thread came up, it really should be corrected, otherwise that old computer saying "garbage in-garbage out" takes effect

capish ?

But, of course, Gewehr98 did correct the erroneous information-in January of 2006.

OK, I think this one can be considered corrected, and its usefulness has been outlived.

Closed.
