I was recently given a winchester 1894. the serial number is under 1,000. It is in poor shape though. the tang has been broken and brazed back together. the stock has also seen better days. I also received a merwin & hulbert early model without the top strap and has the original ivory grips. the nickel is gone and the action is in poor shape. I was wondering if these two guns where worth restoring or if it is even possible. I am not concerned with cosmetics but i would like to be able to shoot them.
