1890-1930 or so.
Condition, caliber, etc.

About $873 depending on condition.
You will need to take it to a gunsmith or machinist to find out.
Value of a 1980 Winchester rifle 22 short octagonal barrel?
Depends entirely on the revolver- make and model. In 1890, a Colt Single ACtion Army was ABOUT $25.00, depending on caliber, barrel, and finish. However, there WERE very cheap revolvers selling for less than a dollar. See if your library can get you a reprinted copy of the 1896 Sears catalog. it has a whole section on rifles, shotguns and handguns that were for sale (by mail!)
