Pretty hard to give you a figure without pics and condition description.

IF it is in factory original configuration, IF it is in 95-98% condition. It could be worth a little over a $1000.

If any of the above is not true it is probably worth $1000 or less.

Think Coyboy is about on, though I'd say slightly high. I'd put one in 95-98% in the $850-1000 range and down from there. Look on some of the auction sites and see what they're going for. It's not exactly prime time to sell a big game rifle either, prices do vary accordingly. Some of the best deals can be had right after the big game seasons close.

I had a guy offer me $1200 for my "not for sale" pre-64, and he had a check book in his hand.

Ha OK so I thought about it it is in near perfect shape with just slight markings on the barrel kinda like a rub mark or something and a tiny nick near the crown .I am not sure if something got on it or what because the light rub mark is from bear hunting and when I woke up the next day it was there .Only tried cleaning it with gun oil so not sure .I threw a leupold 4-12x50 on it and a hogue overmold stock but that's it.

7 mm mag???

I`m probably wrong [as usual] but I don`t think they made a 7 mag in a pre-64 Winchester. They did make them in 264 win mag though, both standard and featherweights.

PS If it turns out to be just a plain old 7 mm mauser or a 7.65 mauser you will have hit the jackpot!
