Just picked up this model 67 today for $80. Saw it, didn't have much knowledge of them. Wanted single action my sons could learn on.

At the price thought I'd use it to practice some basic gunsmithing (refinishing the stock, checkering, bluing the barrel, etc). Pictures didn't do it justice, when I got it the gun was almost perfect. Stock without dings, bore about perfect, bolt nice and shiny. Some bluing worn off, but not much.

Might not make it a project gun now. Did I get a good deal? What's the value on some of these? I know they were intended to be cheap at production.

First style finger grove stock. Looks to me like you got a great deal.

Have a great day

Chrome pieces makes it a later production 67. You paid a great price, and your wishes to refinish won't hurt because it doesn't hold "collectable " value.  A great gun for a beginner.

Beautiful little rifle. Taught my wife and daughters on the very same. I’d leave as is - beautiful  patina. Find a beater to restore.
