lever action. Was made back in the 1940's.My boss has one, says he thinks its rare.

Anybody have any clue as to what it might be worth and how rare it might be?

I think you mistook this for a gun forum.

You see them in the pawnshops from time to time, always horribly overpriced for the condition. $1400-$1900.

"Rare" tends to mean "valuable" I'd just say they are uncommon.

BTW:.. it's a model 71. The caliber is .348.

Sounds like a Model 71. The cartridge is .348 Winchester.
The M71 was the last incarnation of the Model 1886, a large lever action. M71s came in various grades and at least two configurations. You'll see them at funshows sometimes, and they're always pricey.

Also said he wouldn't mind selling it as long as it was to someone that would take care of it.
