I got an appraisal for a Winchester model 1894 carbine 30 w.c.f. *Fancy style (named by checkered buttplate upgrade), Manufactured in 1949 with an aperture (peep) sight. Was told it is in excellent condition, wich I expected. Guy told me it is worth 500-750. He then offered me 750. Made me suspicious. I asked a gun collector I know who said he thought I was being quoted post '69 prices. The one I have he said is worth a premium and could be worth thousands. Help! Can anyone tell me what this 1949 rifle is worth?
