30 years old and never loaded

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Greetings all. Very new to 94s but wanted one for a while. A friend of a friend had one to sell so I grabbed it. Turned out to be from 1980, New in the box no sign of ever being loaded. The seller was the original owner (grandpa bought it for him). He never shot it. It even included the original sales slip from a store in CT. Any ideas on what its worth? Not planning on selling,but would like to know.

Welcome to the forum. I assume that it is a 30-30 and if so a new in the box with original papers is probably worth around $1000 to a collector. Good used ones are around $400. I enjoy shooting guns to much to have ever kept one unfired in the box.

Thanks. I didn't know it was unfired until after i sent my money. Just got lucky this time. I'm not one for unused guns either. Only thing stopping me from shooting this one is finding time.

IMO it would be best to sell it as is and use the money to buy a pre 64 shooter. You could get a much nicer gun with the money. Again, just my opinion but if you get a pre 64 gun, take it apart and inspect the individual parts, you'll see what I mean. It's a shame that things aren't made this way anymore.
