    I inherited three guns: A Marlin model 1894s 44-40 rifle (reproduction), which was made in the 90s, and there were like 900 of them made. I have a Cimeron pistol that shoots the same 44-40 round, and a Winchester model 1892 32-20, which I assume is also a reproduction, but it doesn't say anything about it on the gun.

    I'm thinking that the 44-40 rifle is about $800, the pistol at maybe $600, and the Winchester is $1000-$1500...I guess. Does anyone have a better idea than I do?

    Well- The Marlin used is about $500 around here-
    The pistol about $300-$400
    The Winchester (no such thing as a reproduction IF its a Winchester 1892 :confused:) in good condition shuld bring about what you thought- depends greatly on location-

    the Cimmaron is a reproduction of the Colt SAA pistol, but a very good one and well made. best i can tell from the pictures, the Winchester and the Marlin are originals and not reproductions by the markings you have shown. pictures can be decieving, but they look to be in very good condition and to find out their true value, i would take them to a gun dealer or gunsmith and have them appraised by condition and model. very nice looking firearms.

    Thank you, guys. I am taking the Winchester to valued. Everyone says it must be original, but one guy tells me it's been reblued and is worth about $500...maybe self-serving on his part, I don't know.

    From what I can see, it does not appear to be reblued, methinks he is trying to screw you.

    it could be re-blued but no way to tell for sure from the pics. I am very suspicious of the short mag tube.
