Bert will have your answers.  There is no premium for this set up.  Condition and originality will dictate the value.  I have and shoot one of these.  I do see them occasionally for sale.  Fire form 22 Hornet brass using a .228″ bullet.  Off the top of my head I don’t remember the exact bullet weight but it is in the mid 40 grain range.

And the bigger the hole at the end of the brl, the higher the value in most cases.  I really like the “hex”  rcvr ring on this gun.

The 22 WCF was one of the more popular (common) cartridge chamberings found in the Single Shot.  In total, nearly 8,200 were manufactured.
