good to know
The value will depend on the condition. Pre-64 sporting rifles can run from $200 to $3000, depending on the condition. You would be best off having an advanced Winchester collector or gunsmith provide a professional appraisal of the rifle.
If that barrel is less than 16 inches long and you are in the US, you have an illegal firearm.
Very little, and possibly worth 10-years ina federal prison and a $250,000 fine if it is found to be any fractional bit less than 18-inches. Winchester never made a Model 97 with an 18-inch barrel, so what you have is a non-factory cut-down gun. The shortest barrel length made by Winchester was 20-inches.
If you mean the legal length of the barrel? it is 18 inches and for rifles it is 16 inches.
Would have to have a LOT more information than that. Standard barrel length on the rifle version was 26 inches, but special orders were possible. Barrels longer than 26" are very rare and can add hundreds of dollars in value. Above all, we need to know if the rifle is completely original, and in what condition (detailed). This gun can be worth anywhere from $400 to over $4000 depending on all of these factors. Digital pictures would be a big help. firstname.lastname@example.org
The base area cannot be 363 in since area is measured in square inches not inches. Consequently, there can be no sensible answer to the question.
A 570 gallon barrel that is 14 inches wide holds 570 gallons of fluid.
10.6 or 10.75 inches with a six inch barrel, depending on Mark, 14.75 inches with a 10 inch barrel.
Inside height is 32.8 inches for closed top barrel and 32.5 inches for open top barrel. Search "55-gallon-drum-dimensions.html" for all dimensions.
With rifles and pistols, it is the diameter of the inside of the barrel in inches. So a .45 caliber pistol has a barrel 0.45 inches in diameter. In can also be expressed in metric terms- caliber 9mm means a barrel that is 9mm in diameter. With cannon, such as those on a Naval vessel, it is the relation of the barrel length to the internal barrel diameter- so a 3 inch 50 caliber cannon fires a shell 3 inches wide, from a barrel 150 inches long (3x50).
