I have a M94 Big Bore .375 that the previous owner cut the butt stock on and put a crescent style buttplate on. It has some minor blowing issues in the barrel band, looks like it was rusty at some point and got cleaned well. Debating selling as I have another in mint condition that was a family members and it's already set up to my liking. Ball park value for the "rougher" one? Will be posting on here for sale, still haven't figured out pictures since it changed few years ago, but could email or text them for someone to post.

It's hard to say without seeing it. Of course you don't see the BB as often as a standard model. It's all in the eyes of the beholder as to whether the unique design is more or less desirable on the local market. It's not a practical use cartridge for this part of the Midwest, which limits it to the collector category.

Last one I remember was in about 95% condition. It had no rust, but some honest bluing wear on the edges of the receiver from carrying in the field. I think he was asking 850.00 and explained there was little interest. He brought it down to 775.00. I had just picked up another item and did not have the cash on hand.

I remember being a bit reluctant because it had a smooth stock. The only other BB .375 I owned was quite fancy and well checkered. I probably should have made the trip to the ATM.

I realize you can't get them all, but I make a special mental note on those that interest me.

With a cut butt stock, 450.00 would make me stop and consider it. If the rest was impressive, I would probably drag it home, wondering if I should have. The .375 just isn't the right cartridge for a crescent butt plate and a meaty shoulder. I suppose I could treat it like a .38-55 and use "cowboy loads". Or maybe look for a stock replacement. It's all about the interest of the specific individual.

Most I have seen have been in the $600-750 range in good to excellent condition. Heavily used and abused examples can be had for around $450-500.


As long as there's still lead in the air, there's still hope!

That cut stock/Crescent butt really hurts value. Is your rifle angle eject or top eject? Mine is top eject. The angle eject should bring a bit more than the top eject.

Here are my Winny BBs in 444 Marlin, 356 Winchester, 307 Winchester and 375 Winchester. The long non-BB is a 7-30 Waters. They are beautiful rifles. Hence, I never hunt with them. My Marlins get the nod if I carry a lever.

I know where there is a nice shooter grade 375. I think it’s $500 and the biggest detractor being “speckling” on the receiver from moisture at some point.

Thats just sick....Life just isn't fair. I've been looking for the top two rifles forever. They are like hens teeth up here. What a beautiful collection that is, congrats!

I just picked up a nice shooter grade with a 20 round box of ammo for $500.
