I may have the chance to buy a model 1886 Winchester rifle in .45-90, I'm planning to go look at it tomorrow morning. The man selling it didn't seem to know guns too much, he said he and his wife inherited it from her father (grandfather? I don't remember for sure), it's very old and he's asking $1000 for it. He didn't know if it was a take down or solid frame. Before I get flogged for not running over at warp speed and getting it for that price, he told me it's been re-stocked and may have been reblued, but he's not sure on the rebluing part. He said he knows it shoots, and there's some old shells with it. Assuming the worst, that it's been re-stocked and reblued but the bore is good and the new wood and bluing if redone looked decent, what would be a fair price for a rifle like this? I realize that's always a hard question to answer based on the limited info on hand, but I'm just trying to get a fair ballpark estimate, I don't want to put up that kind of money for a humped bubba special. I've always written 1886's off as being too expensive for me and haven't kept up with current prices for them. Thanks in advance!
