    I am trying to help two friends establish the value of a Winchester 94 " Illinois Sesquicentennial" Carbine. The gun has never been fired, But the action has been opened several times.There is no box, Manual or paperwork. It has spent its life in a gun cabinet, And each time the owner shows it to someone he opens the action to show them and verify it is unloaded.

    The seller and buyer want to be fare in pricing. I am not involved other than they requested I check the internet for prices. Please give some idea of a fare price. thanks, Richard

    without the box and tags and other NIB goodies, priced like any other 94 shooter out there

    Still a popular deer gun in MI. $350-$450 in that condition.

    If it's signed by Rod Blagojevich, it could bring plenty after December 6th.

    ;-)

    Always thought I'd get a '94 someday. It's good to have dreams.

    Like others said, no box, no papers, no collectable. Maybe a small premium over a standard '94.

    I would agree with shannon391 on its value.

    I bought a really nice one at a Garage sale out here in Arizona for $150.00 and took it home with me, then he gave two full boxes of 30/30 ammo for it ... The guy used to be a Cowboy action shooter and had the rifle for many years and never shot it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I noticed that those giving the higher values didn't offer to buy it.

    What does that mean Bob? The poster clearly states he is not the owner or seller.

    If you live out west I guess it would not be a great choice, so the price would not be as high as other states.

    Some could say it means money talks and BS walks.

    Collectables without a box and papers aren't worth diddly no matter where you live. Sorry, but true. My 30th BB lists $495 with the box/ paper. Try selling at 100 % blue book in this economy. Subtact $200 without box and you may get lucky. Also, folks wanting a value are doing it for a reason, such as seeing if there is an intrest to purchase.

    My opinion and experience.

    It will sell quick if it's as described. I'd rather have one built in "68" over a new one. There is still a good following with these classic lever guns.
