    Default Winchester Model 56 .22 Long Rifle

    Hello,

    This is my first post here to the board. I am seeking information on a family heirloom that was handed to my father from his grandfather. It is a Winchester Model 56 .22 caliber long rifle that was produced in 1927, according to its serial number.

    I am seeking a value on the gun for insurance purposes and a "want to know" interest. My father used this gun as a kid and earned expert marksmanship with it [among others] and it has a deep sentimental value. I would also like to know if it will detract the value of the gun to use it, as I have not shot it in over 15 years.

    I took it to a few gun stores for input and received a wide response. I heard anywhere from $300-$1100 dollars. I was also given that its condition was 90-95%. I don't know who to believe because most of them offered to buy the gun or trade a new gun for it. Only one older man seemed honest. Given all of this, I would just like to know the true value. However, sentimentally it is priceless.

    I was told the only detractors for its value were loss of bluing on the trigger guard and a tad on top of the bolt. Other than that its fantastic, all original and the barrel looked perfect.

    Here are a few pictures that I hope will help value the gun monetarily.
