    I’d take a hard pass on the 1903. It’s not worth anything near that.

    You’re definitely ahead of the game on the Winchester. I browsed through some sold listings on GunBroker just now. I’d put the market value at more like $350 right now. Nice snag!

    Yeah, I had no interest in the 1903 and nicely told the shop that it was a Mixmaster and not really anything a collector would want. I'm sure though he will sell it at $900.00 to someone.

    How do you look at sold listings on GunBroker? I was looking at listing for this rifle and agree on the $350.00 price. I'll sit on it a year or two before I consider selling it. Need to enjoy it for awhile.

    I'm thinking about doing a rust blue on the Winchester but need to research the rifle first and see what's what, it needs a small crack in stock repaired that I noticed as well

    I saw the small crack, you'll need to clean out all the old glue first and the residual oil. I used to use "microbed" by Brownell's but don't know if they still make it. Saw the ring in the bore, not so unusual... Just a good cleaning and that should take most of the active rust. If you decide to blue it, we can all talk further then. Yes, take it out and warm it up. Don't fear the real good ammo, it won't come apart.
    Regards, Jim

    Searching sold listings on GunBroker isn’t as streamlined as it is on eBay.

    First, select “advanced search” near the search bar. Then select “completed listings.”

    This is the real shortcoming of the GunBroker search system. This will only show you ALL completed listings — even if they didn’t sell.

    So what I prefer is to add the “No Reserve” filter and sort by “Bid Count: High to Low.”

    Just browse through listings with bids and you’ll get an idea of what your item is worth.

    Thanks again Jim. You always give good advice, finding the real good 22 long ammo is tough! I think Winchester did a special run of them a few years back when they did the WRF, but I didn't buy any at the time. So the subsonic CCI CB 22 Long is about all that is available for these old girls anymore; I keep a good stock of them on hand for my rifles that use 22 LONG and for testing 22 rifles after I fix them.

    I just mean good quality full power. Even stingers or yellow jackets...but I suppose that's short there right now. Gun will work fine I think...

    The Winchester 1890 has a feeding problem and I found that its the magazine spring causing it. Numrich has them for $5.75 so I've added it to my cart for the nest time I place an order. It would be interesting though to see if I could anneal the orgainl spring expand it and them re-temper to being it back to life.

    I found out that the rifle is the Thrid version of this modle and was manufactured sometime in 1910, that make it 110 years old.

    Fun for a project but I think getting a new one is better. I had an Uzi mag here that had been blocked and welded shut...and the spring was as tough and resilient as the finest bailing wire. Without hesitation it was ripped out and discarded. New spring, no problems.
