    After the recent passing of my wife's grandmother, the family has found a couple of my wife's grandfather's guns. He sold most of his guns off while he was alive and his spouse sold off some of the remainder guns after his passing and kept back a couple .22's. One of the .22's would be of interest to some of you, I think, but it's not for sale I am just fishing for information.

    The gun in question is a Remington Model 6 .22 that was purchased in the 1920's. It's in good to excellent shape and my mother-in-law is going to hang it in her house and kind of wants to know its value for insurance purposes...Does anyone know the value of this gun? Maybe even a little history of these Model 6's?

    Thank You,
