I'm new to the forum so please bear with me. I have several firearms I inherited from my father. I'm 65 now and it's time to pass them on to someone who can appreciate them.

They are all hunting rifles and shotguns.

I have a pre 64 winchester model 70, but I'm not sure which grade it is. I think it is probably a field grade, but i'm not sure. It has peep sites, but I'll have to take a closer look at it for other things.
I have a 300 Savage, lever action.

iI have a Winchester Model 12, 12 ga shotgun. My mother bought this for my dad in 1953 and he duck hunted with it for several years. My father always took care of his things, and the gun is in very good condition.

In order to price these firearms correctly, what features should I look for?

Thank you for your help.

Well, you could post some pictures with a description of each firearm. We, who really have nothing to gain from offering you advice, can give you our best guess as to grade and condition, and perhaps even what you could expect in the way of price. Then you could look up similar guns on the various online gun sale sites. This would give you a good starting place to begin with.

Your state laws would dictate the procedure you would have to follow in selling them.

If you made 14 more substantive posts you might even be able to sell them here.

Both of these rifles appear to be standard mill run hunting rifles. While I cannot say for sure, the m70 appears to be of post 64 manufacture. While what I can see if the metal looks good, the stock is ready for the wood pile. Careful refinishing will improve its appearance but will do little or nothing to increase its saleable value. Probably cost prohibitive from a purely monetary standpoint.

The 99 looks beautiful although the blueing is very light, it is even. The stock appears in fine shape and original. It is by far the better of the two in my opinion.

Check gunbroker.com for comparison prices.

Should I remove the bolt and take photos? I'm not sure what you mean by "bolt face".
Don't need it anymore

The bolt face is the front of the bolt.

The Savage looks to be the better of the two from a collector's standpoint.

Push feed/control feed. Different extractors. Pre-control, post-push.
