Need Gun Information? Ask a Firearms Expert for Answers ASAP
Good morning. Is there any model information on the gun? Can you tell me exactly what it says on the gun? - Jim
There should be information stamped on either the receiver or barrel (basically somewhere on the metal parts of the gun). It should be fairly easy to spot. You'll need to have the gun in front of you.
You can always reply back to me when you have the gun.
Sure thing! Just reply back to this thread when you have the info
The website will notify me when you reply.
Anything that you see written on the gun....words, dates, etc
Ok, can you take a photo of the gun?
.30-06 Springfield is the official name for the ammunition, so the rifle could have been made by Springfield, or even another company. If you have a photo, it would be helpful in determining what gun you actually have.
The serial number may be helpful down the road, but at this point I need more info.The caliber of ammunition is etched onto the gun, so that the gun owner/user knows what caliber of ammo to use in the gun. Using the wrong caliber ammo can be dangerous or damage the gun.
Imagine if you had something that said "add oil"...would you use lubricating oil? Motor oil? Vegetable oil? If you used the wrong oil, that could be bad!
Sometimes its not easy. There's probably some small area of info that you are missing when you look the gun over. Info is usually on the metal work somewhere, either the receiver or the barrel. Its very small and sometimes hard to see, but you should be able to see it with the naked eye.
Used scope prices will vary, but as a rough number that particular scope is worth about $300.
Great! I'll be around here somewhere when you reply.
Do you still need help with this?
