    I've got a model 62 winchester and I was wondering what It was worth. All the metal has got an even plum colored patina and the only wear is on the hammer and underneith the pump handle. The wood is in about 80% condition with a few dings. The serial number is 1954XX. Thanks for any help.

    Over 409,000 mfg. between 1932-58.
    Grading 100% 98% 95% 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30%

    with that serial number it should be a 62-A

    Is yours in .256 mag? They are kind of rare and collectors like them. I had a pal who shot one at coyotes for a while, until he found out that it shoots like a rainbow. But he liked the short throw.

    The guns haven't been made for a long time. It's probably sell pretty good at a gun show, if it's in good shape.

    BTW that 256 mag is fun to shoot. At close range it's a pretty good dear round. Be great for javilina or some such game.

    There are people who check this site out and have access to recent gun prices. I don't.

    But I can tell you that those old Winchester Model 62's are very populalr and the ones I see for sale are expensive; over $500 usually.

    Does yours have the little take down screw on the left side of the breech? If the bore is good, and if it works okay you've really got a nice gun there. Many turn plum as your gun can be 80 plus years old, I think.
