I was able to obtain additional photos of a guy selling his gun collection.  I broke the photos out into different groups to hopefully make it a little easier to anyone to review.  The guy is not interested in selling in bulk at a discount.  So trying to work to identify the ones that appear to be original and potentially worth exploring.  There is one 1890/3 that was refinished in CCH.  He advised Turnbull is who did it at his request and can track the paperwork to support.  Not sure if that matters or not.

1890/2 – https://photos.app.goo.gl/14r6KVAjFo64pq3N7

1890/3 – https://photos.app.goo.gl/32gJQEYVbbdczPvC6

Model 61 – https://photos.app.goo.gl/4Y141cC6U6XkDHyn6

Model 62/63 – https://photos.app.goo.gl/vHATWfFnHsEGaqVc8

The asking price on most of the guns is $800-$1,200.  With a few exceptions or highlights I will list below.

Model 63 – $750

Model 61 22 Mag – $2,300

Model 62 (pre-war) – $800

90/3 – 22LR – $1,600

Any suggestions/info you could provide would be super helpful!!

Thanks,

Brandin

I’m not really a 22 collector, but I don’t see any bargains here.  I would move on and pursue elsewhere.  Just my opinion.

I believe the 62 with the tang sight and the 63 are fairly priced. The lyman sight on the 62 is a $250 sight bringing the cost of the rifle down to $550 if you choose to remove it and sell the sight. Both rifles have good original condition and I don’t think you will find the same models in that condition much cheaper. You may be able to negotiate a lower price if you show interest in both……

The Model 90 22 Long Rifle S/N 835667 is also a good deal in the $800 – $1200 range.

I should have noted that one.  I missed it in looking at my notes on prices.  $1,600 was his price there for the 90 22LR.

That is a “Full” retail price tag, but not unreasonable.

Good morning Brandin,

I answered you in detail via you email to me.  The Model 61 Magnum has been refinished so I would definitely pass on that rifle.  ESPECIALLY at the asking price of $2300.  I have seen some perfect examples sell in that range but this rifle is not one of them.  The Model 61 .22 LR Round Barrel Only is a fairly uncommon rifle and would be a good buy.

Not unreasonable if he was selling 2 or 3, but this many?  I think your own display of interest in them, returning to take more photos, is contributing to this inflexibility.  Unless he’s got something you’ve been yearning for all your life, I’d say, thanks for the offer, & wait to see if he became more amenable later on. If he called in a few dealers to make offers, I think his attitude might change quickly.

Anyone else find it interesting that the model 62A (318517) has the tang sight mounted backwards? And I don’t believe the tang was factory tapped for a tang sight in that serial number range?

I do appreciate that point of view.  If I was really in this to just try to maximize a potential profit, the is the right approach.  For me personally, I am just trying to potentially acquire a couple guns to keep the history and one day pass along to my kids.  This gentleman is not in any need for money and has enjoyed collecting the guns over his years traveling in the service and after.  It has been my goal reaching out to this group to identify original guns and help confirm reasonable costs.  And I must say that this community of like minded people has been amazing.  A lot to digest and sort through, and you all have made it so much more palatable.  Thank you all!!

I’ve looked in vain for this gun.  In which photo did you find it?

If you go under the photos of the 62/63 models, it is the last gun.  Should be the last 7 pictures for the gun with a tang sight.  Hope that helps.

Doesn’t speak well for the man’s gun-savvy that he left it in this ridiculous position, even if that’s the way he bought it.

I wanted to thank everyone in this group for their info!  I was able to secure a couple of the guns on this post and would not have happened without all your help.  Now I have a few items of history to pass down to my kids some day!
