Winchester Model 74

I have a Winchester Model 74 that is in near mint condition. The wood, the metal, the bore, everything on this gun is darn near like new. I really enjoy shooting it. I have two questions about this gun.

One, does it have any value other then that of a shooter?

Second, if I have it modified for a sling, will the value, if any, be affected by that?

Thanks in advance!

Roy-
Win 74 22LR semi-autos go for about $200-$350 depending on condition. There is not a lot of interest in them unless you have the original box.

I don't know that it makes any difference to the price.
