Age & Value of Rifles

I just inherited 3 rifles. I know NOTHING what so ever about guns. Here is what I have. I do believe all to be pre 1950 rifles.

Marlin 336RC 30-30 serial #J56xxx

Remington 12A

Winchester 1907 S.L. 351 Serial # 18XXX
I was told the Winchester ammo is difficult & expensive to find and would be a "collecters only" gun.

All 3 have been stored inside a dry closet. They look to be in to excellent shape and I did try the triggers and they work well. There is a crack in the wood "pump" handle of 1. It appears to be just an age crack and the pump does work and does not feel like it is about to fall apart in your hands. Feels solid.

From what I have gathered, the Marlin was manufactured in 1952 (J), the Winchester probably around 1911 (do you have the clip for it?), and the Remington you can read up on the changes at Remington Model 12 variations 22 RF Info.

Dunno about the others...but I think that 1907 in .351W was what they used on Bonnie and Clyde? Yeah..ammo might be tuff, but for a collector, esp in that year...prob be worth something.

Factory letters are normally pretty cheap, if available.


Oh..wait Indy...you know nothing about firearms? Tell ya what, I'll give ya $150 for the lot and arrange for the transfer....deal?

lol
