    very well built rifles, highly desireable as collectors pieces and hunting rifles. if you can get it within reason, BUY IT!

    Price depends on:
    Condition obviously
    Early or late model, long or short tang
    Type of sights, original?
    Length of bbl
    Original in other aspects such as butt pad, scope added, drilled for scope etc

    A beater can fetch $900. A real collector can bring tens of thousands. Most are worth around $1200 - $3,000.
