Have seen the above rifle, looks new. It has the regular checkering style, not the skip line or basketweave type. What's it worth? The pawn shop has it marked $350.00. Thanks.

FWIW:

The price is consistent with what I have seen around here. The real question is why do you want it?

For hunting, I never felt the 100s were very well respected.

For collectors value? Then be real careful, cuz minor imperfections can destroy value.

FOr plinking with surplus ammo? Then buy it. Semi-auto 308s are pretty spendy in military configuration. For $350 it should be a fun gun.

Just my 2 cents . . .

Others here can give you better information.

Now if it was a Winchester model 88, that is a different story. If anyone knows where one of those can be had at a reasonable price, let me know. Little brother wants one preferably in 308 but would go for 358 or 284 as well. Any of you Canucks out there got one. Easier if I don't have to import the fool thing, what with our Draconian forearms laws!

From the "Blue Book":

MODEL 100 RIFLE
- .243 Win., .284 Win., or .308 Win. cal., 4 shot detachable mag., 22 in. round barrel with open sights, gas operated, basket weave pattern impressed on stock, pistol grip cap. Over 262,000 mfg. 1961-73 with some production occurring in Japan.
Grading
100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50%
$500 $450 $400 $300 $250 $230 $215

The pre-1964 .284 Win. cal. with cut checkering was made for less than one year (WFF, ser. range 72,xxx with no letter suffix or prefix).

The part about basket weave pattern impressed on stock makes me wonder if the stock is original.

That seems OK to me for a pre-'64 cut checkered gun in excellent condition. I've never seen a pawn shop that wouldn't deal, so give it a try before you offer the asking price.

I have a Winchester 100 in 308 that I use on control hunts. It is accurate enough for deer and has never failed me. The only thing that I don't like about it is the mushy trigger.

It's a sweet looking rifle. Someone took care of it. I'm headed over in the morning to try to trade him out of it if it is still there.

Offer them $275.00 and go from there. These models have some fairly common service issues and some parts are nearly unavailable. It's possible you can be buying a spendy wall-hanger.
Personally, I wouldn't spend over $150 for one, and I'd keep it only for the parts....

Not trying to diss the rifle here, just stating facts...

I know Winchester had a recall on the firing pin. I've heard they will fix it no problem. Probably ought to confirm that. I just like the one piece stock; it is also a fairly light and trim rifle for an auto. I know the magazines are sky high if you can find one also. I left my trade for him to look over. It's a .308 Savage 99 in need of some cosmetic work.

He wanted the Savage plus $100.00, so I passed. Too bad, I liked the rifle. He also had increased the sticker to $400.00! He tried to buy the Savage outright but I passed on that too.

I owned a Winchester semi-auto years ago, that I believe was a model 100.

It had a tendency to fire 3 or 4 rounds with one pull of the trigger.

Not kidding.

I later learned this was a flaw common to the Winchester semi's, and that Winchester, at one time, offered a parts package they'd send out to fix this problem.

Perhaps others can add to this.

Buster- IMHO you should keep the 99! This seems like a no-brainer. The 99 is a much better gun, and should shoot circles around the 100. Those guns had heavy triggers in them and were prone to not being consistently accurate. At 350, that was an average price, but at 400, it's seeming a little high. NO WAY would I give him the 99 and $100.00. From a collectors standpoint, the 100's are much more desireable in .284. Don't give up on your 99-it's heavier, and not a semi-automatic, but that doesn't matter if you hit 'em with the first shot, does it?

I posted a question about this some time ago and was given a phone number to call. It should be easy to find by doing a search.

Yeah I'm over it now. The 99 is nice, it just needs the lever refinished. It's one of those 1895 75th anniversary rifles. 24" octagonal barrel, crescent brass butt, counter and rotor, lever safety. When I bought the thing I thought the lever had been casehardened and faded away...didn't look at it very well and turns out somebody polished MOST of the brass plating off the lever! It's hideous! Top it off some rust pits set in on the bright steel. Not too bad though, they'll come out. Well I figured I'd salvage it and sent it up to Doug Turnbull, he of the awesome case coloring, but the bill to straighten out the pitting and remove the plating and color case it was more than I had in the whole rifle. Of course he does museum quality work. Anyhoo I've got to find someone who will do maybe just remove the remaining plating and blue the thing for not too much money. You know I've never shot it. I bought it because it was a 99, in .308, with a 24" barrel. I thought that was potentially an interesting combo. It's a pretty rifle with schabel forend and straight grip, no sling swivels. There's a little stamped engraving on each side of the reciever saying "SAVAGE ARMS" and "MODEL 1895", and a medallion in the stock with a big indian head and "75th Anniversary". I thought the guy would instantly trade straight up to be honest. I just wanted something different without spending any cash. And don't get me wrong, the M100 looks new. I still like it but I guess I'm going to try to wear out the 99.
