Expert's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

How old might the firearm be and what I've seen on several gun broker sites, the value could be $400-$450. One I saw was $525. The rife belongs to a friend of mine and is in excellent condition. Your thoughts. Thank you.

Thank you for using Blue Book, and Just Answer!

Looks like Bill has stepped away - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help you.

To determine the age, I need to you look on the left side of the barrel near the frame. There should be a two or three letter alphabetic code, like this: "RYY" or "KP".

Do you have access to the gun to get that code?

Philip
