I have a couple of Winchesters been collecting dust for about 40 years. 94 rifle in 25-35 (shot a coupe coyotes with it) and about 7-8 boxes unopened ammo. Second is a 92 carbine in 25-20. They are both probably 85-90%. What’s the market for these?

Very desirable guns, expect the market would be pretty strong.

Is the 94 a solid frame or takedown?
Standard configuration?
Good bore?

The Market is strong for both, especially in nice Condition!
Caliber, and Configuration, also matter, but Condition, and Rarity, always make them more desirable, on the Market!
Both Calibers are attractive, although, the 94 in 25-35, might be more attractive, in this case.
The 25-20, on the 92 is also nice, but not in high demand, like the 44 cal. in the 92 per say!

Like I stated earlier, in high Condition, you should have no trouble selling these.
Pics, would be great, and the serial numbers, so they can be added in the WACA, data base for a world wide Winchester Survey, being Conducted by WACA members!

You can pm me if you'd like, and don't want to show serial numbers.
Serial numbers can prove when they were mfg.
Pre 1898, will be categorized as Antique, per ATF regulations, and can be shipped without, an FFL. dealers license, hence more money in your pocket if you chose to sell!

The 25-20 Caliber Cartridge was developed by Winchester, a center fire cartridge,specifically for the, John Browning Designed,short action, Winchester Model 1892. A very desirable small game cartridge, and even a small amount, has killed Deer! Today there are many other choices, but there's a strong desire for these!

The 25-35 Was also developed by Winchester, in 1895 for the Model 1894. A center fire cartridge in it self, Known for it's accuracy, this is a very desirable configuration, especially if in high Condition!

Both are of shorter range Calibers.

The way I look at it, if the .25-20 and .25-35 were all that desirable, the ammo companies and rifle manufacturers would still be making them. I have a 92 .25-20 and treat what little ammo that I have left as precious metal.


My other auto is a .45

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory

I understand your point completely!

There are so many other choices today, and the newer generations, want the new fan dangle Black Rifle stuff in miscellaneous calibers, that's fine.
All I'm trying to say is there's still people out there that appreciate the older stuff, including Calibers!

Were not talking AR'S Here!
