I can understand not posting a photo. What I dont understand is your lack of details. Nothing???

The gun has markings. What are ALL THE MARKINGS. Then someone will tell you what it is and you can google and no doubt find some auctions on the internet. Its not that hard.

You might also describe the stock, barrel length, mechanical condition if you can determine, fit, finish or wear over all, iron sights, has it been drilled for a scope?, type of butt plate, grade of wood if restocked. ZERO, that is all you can provide.

Pricing guns is something of an art in itself. At best you get will get a range like 500 to 1000 depending too many factors to list.

i think i got this one for 450.00
after waiting for 20 years to find it and the way it shoots, she ain't for sale.


For some very unknown STUPID reason I walked away from a Siamese Mauser in a very nice grey syn stock at a gun show about 10 years ago, it already had the two position [Buehler?] safety, a 14" LOP with Dec pad, two bags of new brass, out the door for 5 bills. cry

A set of sights and barrel band sling swivel from NECG and I would have a mini Safari rifle that I could have hunted any NA game animal to 300 yards, damn, I hate being that dumb at times.


Simple solution, get a 458 win mag and download it to 45-70 ballistics. 458's are reasonably common and reasonably affordable.


You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it pull it's head out of it's ass.

I went the 458 American route. I had a Remington 660 re-barreled and set up with peep sights. It makes for a great short range thumper. My eyes have been giving me fits trying to focus on the irons and I am thinking of going with a Scout scope and leaving the peep sights or removing the rear peep and adding a regular 2.5x Leupold scope.
