how much would these be worth?
I was offered some cash and the following shotgun and rifle for an old motorcycle (complete and running, barn fresh 1977 cb550f) of mine. Are these any good for taking out coffee cans, rodents, and stuff like that? How much would they be worth? (guess/estimate, no pics at the moment)
I've got a 16 gauge Champion by Iver Johnson break barrel single shot shotgun. Winchester 1906 22 pump that has a shortened 1904 barrel. The Winchester would take some work to get it back to what it should be, but is still shootable -though just one shot at a time.
on the 22...
A little more research shows it is from 1914.
This is a response to someone else's question, so disregard the 1915
date: Quote "The Winchester Model 1906 was designed to be a lower
price version of their earlier Model 1890 rifle. My references
indicate that your rifle was manufactured in 1915. The 1906 had
essentially the same action as the 1890 but it had a 20 inch round
barrel instead of the longer 24-inch full octagon barrel of the 1890
and a butt stock with a composition shotgun type buttplate instead of
the curved metal type of the 1890. The first 1906 rifles produced were
chambered for the 22 Short cartridge only, but in April of 1908,
changes were made in the feeding mechanism and in chambering so the
rifle could fire .22 Short, .22 Long, and .22 Long Rifle rim fire
cartridges, interchangeably. The modifications, to accommodate three
lengths of 22 caliber cartridges, were popular and records show a
remarkable increase in 1906 sales after the change was made.
Approximately 848,000 Model 1906 rifles were manufactured between 1906
and 1932. The value of your rifle will depend on it's condition, the
blue book lists 1906 values between $100 and $800."
This one says on the barrel that it can take short, long and extra
long. I have a feeling it is a boy's gun(which would add to it's
The Winchester needs a magazine tube and possibly
a barrel. That's the mystery. I've never really researched it(until
yesterday and today) and haven't pursued getting it fixed. As you can
see, it's got a pretty short barrel -14" which was a common size for
some of their guns and the front sight looks too clean to be a hack
job. The barrel has 1904 as the model number, but the rest of the gun
seems to be a 1906, but the barrel also seems to be machined for the
inner workings of the pump. I don't know if it's early in the
production and possibly had parts from one gun used on another or
what. It could be a boy's gun. I put in a question to a Winchester
site to see if they could help with a proper ID.
The shotgun is common, they are available used like new for $50-$60 tops. They only sold for $79.00 as recently as 10 years ago. As far as the old Winchester, I would guess that it's not too valuable, especially if it's not complete or functioning properly. Sell the bike for cash, these pieces aren't going to make you any money, and aren't even much as every day shooters.
