Thank you. It is unblemished and in perfect condition. I know my father didn't buy it so it either came from his father or a friend when they died. My father was a Doctor and wouldn't dream of shooting a gun.

Can you check the left side of the barrel for me, near the receiver for a letter code? Possibly 2 or 3 letters?

I'm being told the stock is plastic. The letters and numbers: AD 89

OK, thank you. I don't see how the stock could be plastic. It certainly looks like wood in that one photo.

I don't think that the AD 89 is what I am looking for, but I'm working on it.

Ask Your Own Blue Book of Guns, Firearms Appraisals Question

Do you happen to have a photo of that AD 89 marking?

I will get one tonight. Apologies for not having the gun in my hands when I contacted you. I am sorry if I am wasting your time. Husband has the gun and is old-school with a flip phone and no photo ability in his phone. More info tonight if you are still interested. Otherwise I can just make sure you get paid with a positive review.

Not a waste of time at all. You take all the time you need. I'll be around whenever you get the photo. :)

If you are new to Just Answer, please read first: Once you have read the answer below, you will be prompted to provide a positive rating (on your screen now with the stars) for my efforts in answering your question. Please understand that this positive rating is how the website compensates me for my work on your question. The rating that you give is for my efforts, not the specific answer itself. Sometimes we give a good effort but must deliver bad news, like a low value for your firearm. We don’t like having to do that, but we want to provide you with an honest answer nonetheless. This rating must be completed by you in order to close the question out. If you have a follow-up question, you can still reply back to me and I’ll be happy to assist you further. Please reply back and ask any additional questions that you have before you consider leaving a negative rating..

This Firearm appraisal is a value estimate on the appraised firearm for the date of the appraisal. The value quoted is a real world market value (also known as a private party value) and is the amount you should expect to pay for the firearm. This is not an appraisal for retail or wholesale purposes.The information and values in this appraisal are compiled from a variety of sources including the current editions of the Blue Book of Gun Values , my internal reference library, my network of Firearms experts across the United States, firearms auctions, and through various online sites.The values in this appraisal are based on recent sales of comparable and similar firearms taking into account the rarity, desirability, and overall original condition of the firearm. In the case that a comparable sale is not readily available, the value is based on a projected amount that the firearm would be expected to sell for.All information compiled in this firearm evaluation using the Blue Book of Gun Values online database and Photo Percentage Grading System is copyrighted 2018 by Blue Book Publications, Inc. and may not be used for any other purpose without written permission from the publisher.
