I can dig thru some of the price guide books, but here is the BEST way.

There are several on line auction sites for guns. Perhaps the largest is You will need to register on their site.

After doing that search the CLOSED auctions for guns like yours. Look at the pictures, compare condition, see what they actually sold FOR. Book price is always 2-3 yrs out of date, and generally low.

PS- I have a 100 in .308. Neat little rifles. Make sure you clean the gas system after shooting. If the piston rusts in place, almost impossible to remove action from stock.

Well, how do you clean it ha I haven't shot it yet or messed with it much but any secrets to break it down???

Bobby- here is the owner's manual-

There was also a safety recall on those. You can contact Winchester Customer Service with the serial number, and they can tell you if yours was updated. UNDER SOME CIRCUMSTANCES THE FIRING PIN TIP COULD BREAK, WEDGE IN THE EXTENDED POSTION, GUN WOULD GO UNCONTROLLED FULL AUTO. Fix is a different firing pin, they will fix no charge.
