Got a guy who has a 1969 circa Winchester 94 saddle ring carbine in 44mag in very good condition. He is interested in even trade on my Remington 11-87 Premier LNIB 20 gauge. Not sure what a Winchester like the 1969 is going for? I know that a Remington 11-87 Premier 20 gauge like mine (except it had bluing wear and no box). Went for $900.00 last week on GB. My Remington has the original box and all factory paperwork and factory accessories and bluing is excellent. Appreciate any guidance or thoughts.

Which one do you want? Or which will be used..... IMO dollar wise not a good trade but a gun that sits in the closet vs one that you will actually use - go with the one you will shoot. 6 vs 1/2 dozen. :)

Merlin nailed it. Your shotgun is probably slightly more valuable, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Which one is more valuable/useful to you and do you already own something that could take the place of either.

No. Not a good trade IMO. If it was a pre-'64 M94 maybe. (depending on condition) but not for a post '64. I never really cared for Winchesters as they looked like their guts are hanging out when you work the lever, hahaha. Then you have to deal with top ejection. Again, this is just my opinion.

16" barrel winchester? Winchester made a bunch of those trappers back in 69/70 I've got a like new one in 30-30 they will bring 650-700 to 900 if you find the right buyer, just might want to keep in mind if you use it a lot and carry it like most folks with hand around receiver the plating on the receiver will wear off, the post 64 guns are famous for that, I've also got an old rusty one that gets used. I'm keeping my 1100's is yours one of the engraved ones?

I'm not one hundred percent, but I think 1969 was the first year Winchester 94 came out in 44 mag.
Do what you think is right for you! As old wound said, pre 1964 are worth a bit more.
All steel forging up until 64, hand fitted! Post 64 is sintered or molded receiver's!

Just remember that the Winchester 94 was designed by John Browning for long rifle cartridges such as the 30-30, 32-40, and the 38-55. That is why when you lever a 94 it looks like the guts are falling out . If you want a 44 magnum rifle look for a 94 Marlin or a 92 Winchester.

I would keep that 1100 its much lighter and easier to handle than the old 20 ga skeet models plus its a very nice gun, and the 20" barrel winny is not worth as much as the 16" saddle ring trapper. but all this is just my opinion
