Need Help please

I came across a Winchester 32 special model 94 rifle saddle gun. I have no idea what they are worth. It's in pretty nice shape....Anyone have any idea what they are worth????? I need to move fast on this gun. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Need Help please

gunbroker has some listed in that caliber running 450 in "ok" to 800 unfired. some with the saddle ring, some without. engraved saddle models are fetching 1600 plus. how bad do you want it?

Re: Need Help please

with serial number we can easily give you year of manufacture. Older the better.

Be careful with Gunbroker prices. The listed prices are what the sellers want not what they sell for.

Do an advanced search on Gunbroker to find ones that sold and then you'll have an idea of the real value.

If it's an older (pre WWII) saddle carbine with ring intact and in pretty fair condition, probably $500 and up? Mine in 32 Spl. was made in the mid 1920s, curved butt plate, no ring and about 50% of the bluing left. Many of them here in the east, had the ring itself removed long ago.

Be aware that there were some later M94 saddle ring carbines made and some commemoratives with saddle rings. For the most part, the older ones command the best prices, if in good condition.

You can look up M94 manufacture dates here:

Re: Need Help please

There are two ways to sell a rifle. First is to move fast and sell it cheap. the other way is to find out what it is worth from an expert by having it appraised and advertising it in the proper venue.

You have not even provided a picture, so basically it is impossible to give a proper estimate of value.

Moving fast and getting full value do not go hand in hand.

By reading your post I am not even sure if you are selling or buying?? Tom.

Re: Need Help please

Guys the point I am trying to make is you CAN NOT get in a hurry when buying a rifle you know little or nothing about. And it is 100% impossible to put a value on a rifle like that without pictures. Many pictures!! Sorry about that-but it is a fact.

I buy and sell alot of older Winchester 94's. And have a fair amount of knowledge about them. And I learned long ago that when you get in a hurry you make MISTAKES. Do you really think I am wrong about that??

When buying rifles like older 94's they can vary in price from $300 to who knows how much. And simply calling one a "saddle gun" carbine in 32 Special is not nearly enough information. Actually the term "saddle gun" means nothing to me. Never heard of a "saddle gun" model. "Saddle ring"---Yes. "Saddle gun"---No. Tom.
