I have a Winchester Model 190 with serial number B1302781. This model and serial nubmer does not show up on the Windhester site. Can you tell me when this rifle was manufactured?
ANSWER : The model 290 came out first, in 1965. The 190 came out in 1967. The 290 was made until 1973 and production of the 190 ended in 1980. There were approx. 2,150,000 model 190/290 made through the years.Since yours was made before the middle of the production run, and before 1973, I would guess late 60’s to around 1970 or 1971.

Hope this helps.

What is the age and value of my winchester 3030 model 94 serial number 3419978and 3647077.
ANSWER : Go to Winchester.com and check for a support tab. Most likely the support desk can look up the serial numbers to obtain the date of manufacture. However without seeing the rifles, on body can give you an accurate appraisal of them. You might also want to check for regulations that may prevent the shipping of these weapons to a duty station, and if you do ship them, make sure you do not disclose anywhere on the package that there are rifles contained inside. That may help the guns get there without being ” liberated” from your possession. Good luck!
