Default Just Picked Up Winchester 75.

I just bought a Winchester 75 , 1941 production , about a 90% plus rifle for $595.00 recently.

What I was wondering is what would the opinions be on how much it would cost today to purchase a similarly manufactured rifle ?

Any ideas ?

I absolutely love the rifle , could'nt be more satisfied nor think I could have done any better on the price.

Thanks for the replies.

Country of manufacturer, machinery/processes/tooling used to manufacture, quantity to manufacture, all (and more) are key to price a new product.
Then supply and demand come into play.....

Any pics?

Target (most likely) or the less common Sporting?

Jim , I have a Lyman peep sight and a front blade .

Yep Ed it's a target model. 19K serial range .

I know it would be in the thousands of dollars to replicate . Was just curious if anybody would know.

And sorry no pics yet .

Well for a sort of comparison, the old Winchester 52 and Remington 40x ( the next step up from the 75) are roughly comparable to the vudoo 22’s currently sold. They run about 3 grand.

That rifle looks just like the one Dad started me with . . .including the sights!

Many, many years later, I bought one myself that had the original Winchester target sights, serial #3535 . . . .pre-war, 1939.

Still have it . . .Still use it!

Sight is a Lyman 58E. Post-WWII Lyman made taller versions of the 57 sight for the Winchester 75 (the 58E) and Remington 513T (the Lyman 58RS). The 58RS hides one of the mounting screws under the slide:
