What\'s it worth?

My grandpa has a Remington Model 12-C, .22 rifle. I contacted Remington today and the gun was made between 1919 and 1920. On a scale of 1 - 10 it's at best a 6 or 7. Below is a picture of one similar to it. It's not for sale and will never be for sale, it was my great grandpas before my grandpa had it.......it's gonna stay in the family!!

Thanks!!

Kind of a cool story. My great grandpa was a barber and this fella owed him for some haircuts, but didn't have the money to pay. Brought this rifle to him in pieces in a box as payment. Great grandpa put it together and it's been in the family ever since.

IMO, sentimental value would be worth more than anyone would be willing to give for the gun. It would also be interesting to know how many haircuts it paid for. I get stuff traded for haicuts all the time, just nothing as nice as that gun so far.:eek::

The 26 blue book of gun values says Rem 12C 100% $800, 98%$650 ,95% $500 , 90% $ 400 , 80% $350 , 70% $325 , 60% $300 . Another book that I have saysit was made 1909 to 1936 and value at 85% is$365 with ( 24" octagon bbl) Hope this helps you out I'm like you I have my Grandpa's old Win . model 67 and would'nt get rid of it EVER
