Thanks 30-30remchester. I don't plan on messing with it. It made it this far with just a little wear and tear, it can make it another 100 years without bluing.

I have a picture of my dad, uncle and grandfather back in 1950 with three .30-30's. 2 had octagonal barrels and the other a shorter, round barrel. I don't know what happened to the other rifles, but this one has thankfully stuck around. I don't have enough hairs on my head to count how many deer this rifle has shot.

I don't plan on ever selling it, but from the photos, what percentile would it be under from the numbers allyellow posted above?

the values shown are for the rifle not the carbine. my book also states there was a 24inch barrel made also.

nice rifle I would be very proud to own a rifle that had that kind of family history take care of it for the next generation to enjoy and good luck with it.

But this is the rifle, not the carbine. I never mentioned anything about a carbine. And I have the 26" barrel.

ALLYELLOW hello just a word about the 24" barrels you mentioned. The standard barrel lenght for a rifle was 26", however you could order a RIFLE with barrels as short as 19" and they were known as "short rifles" and you could order RIFLES with barrels as long as 36" and they were known as "extra long rifles". Carbine barrels were 20" standard lenght with barrels as short as 12". These were known as "trappers".

Thanks for the input. Wonder why the 2009 blue book ommitted these details?

Maybe it was just too many different sizes, but valued at the same amount. All the carbines together and all the rifles together.

There are vast differences in values of the above mentioned variations. Standard carbines are the most produced and so are the lowest values. Rifles are quite a bit rarer and the price is 50% higher. Short rifles usually doubles that of standard rifles. I have never even seen an extra long for sale but Im sure the price will be STEEP. The trapper model carbines prices differ by barrel lenght and rarity. 15" and under are extremely valuable. Then there are the DELUXE and SPECIAL ORDER 1894's are in a price range of their own.
