I just saw this add on KSL for a Winchester 94 (made in 1895) chambered in .38-55:http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218&ad=20879473&cat=&s_cid=rss-classifieds-
From what I can gather, if this was in far better condition it would be worth a ton... but I'm wondering if this would be a bad buy at around $170 for the condition it is in (2% blue remaining, pitting, etc).
I also have found out that .38-55 is crazy expensive to buy factory rounds, and I read that they can be finicky to reload, so I realize that ammunition might be a headache.
Aside from that... it seems like a fun gun to have in the collection. And perhaps I'd even consider getting a new blue put on it (since the collectors value is already destroyed).
Anyone able to give me some advice?
