These are not long range rifles and I'd imaging they'll be "safe queens"... that's what I get for my remarks in Ian's post.
I was given (qualified soon) two (2) rifles just a short bit ago, one is a heirloom (my wifes' family) and the other (probably to be an heirloom also) is real property that I've been given the option to buy once I discover the worth of it.
1. The first is a 1892 Winchester in 25-20 WCF. From my short search it appears to have been manufactured in early 1901. There are wear marks on it but no additional holes and all components appear original. It has not been re-bored to 32-20 or had a barrel liner. (I have not examined the bore and have no real intention to shoot it and I'd imagine my son would not either.)
This rifle will be insured and be presented in a custom display case with family tales and ancestory.
2. The other is a 1894 Winchester in - 32 Win. Spl. - (20" barrel). It date of manufacture came back as 1956. It appears as near new with the owner stating it's only been shot eight (8) times (I have no reason to disbelieve this known to me individual). Again no extra holes or missing parts that I can tell (as one might expect). I need to send money once I know the value of the rifle
