Over on another forum, just after Christmas this guy posts that his dad has a Winchester Model 94 in 38-55 with a s/n of 13xxx in excellent condition that's been in the family for generations and wonders if it's worth much. The first reply says without seeing it it must be worth at least $10K because with an under 14xxx s/n it's a true 1894 model 94 and the OP can't believe it.

Without any pictures the guys just say, yep it must be worth some and they ask for pictures. Fast forward to last Wednesday, 2/1/12 and he finally gets set up and posts some pictures of one of the most beautiful rifles I've ever seen.

Then yesterday, he posts again saying " Holly Stuff!" with a link to Gun Values Board where an appraiser explains just what his dad has ..... starting out by writing,

"If you are not sitting down, please do so now... and if your father is in the vicinity, have him sit down as well."

Here's the link with the appraisal and pictures. Scroll up to see his request and the pictures and then follow along with the appraisal. Enjoy: http://www.gunvaluesboard.com/wincheste ... tml#178654

Took me a few min to find the post again with the new change.

Glad you enjoyed the post. I think that is just one beautiful rifle.

I agree, my brothers are all obsessed with the synthetic stocks, but i am not a huge fan of them.

Well I like synthetic stocks on some firearms......but def not all. I would never put any on something as classy as a Winchester Lever gun.
