Any ideas what model or models .22 pump Winchester would've made in the early 1930's and what a value range might be?

irvingdog, is your store in Robinsdale?
Is it the big gun store there with the new ownership?
Reason I ask is I am looking for a range that will sign my CMP form so I can buy a M1 Garand.I tried Metro but those clowns won't sign any thing for me.Even if they sat there and watched me fire the 50 rounds needed to qualify.

Thanks for the help.

Irving Dog - it wasn't me asking about gun value - hopefully it wasn't somebody interested in the same gun I am. This one is in the family.

Uffdapete,
Is the gun you're reffering to a Winchester .22 WRF ? Octagon barrel, pump, tubular magazine, take down model with a thumb screw on one side to take the gun apart into 2 pieces ?
If so, I think it''s a model 1918 or 1914, (my memory fails me, and I haven't pulled it out of the gun safe in ages) made in 1930.
I have one. I've seen prettier versions with birds eye maple stocks and nickle plated barrels and receivers in books.

You can still get ammo for them from Cabella's once in a while. When I was kid I used to shoot .22 long rifles through it and they'd always expand and jam in the breech......it was years later that I realized I was shooting the wrong caliber ammo from it. It's more like an old version of a .22 mag.
Oh yeah...I used to see them at gun shows going for $300 to $600 depending on their condition.

The first Winchester rimfire pump was the octgon barrel Model 1890. Got two of them. They came in short, long, long rifle, and WRF. A lot of them have corroded out rifling from the corrosive powder used in the shells then. Next was the 1906, that came in short, long, and long rifle, interchangably. Those would have been the rifles of the 1930,s. Later, came the Model 62 and the next was the hammerless Model 61. The 61 also came in the .22mag. I've only seen one of the mags. High bucks.

The gun is in the family, but I haven't seen it yet. I'm hoping to get a look in a couple weeks. I was told it doesn't have an octagon barrel, that it does have a hammer.
I'll try and get a model number over the phone.

Icehouusebob is correct. I'm getting forgettful in my old age. The rifle I have is a model 1890, .22WRF made in 1914.

    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.

    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
