I just noticed a 10/22 on a local forum and want to know what you feel this is worth. It was manufactured in 1977. It is a blued model with a horrible stock, rusted over barrel with pitting. The receiver and trigger group have gouges and scrapes all over. The rifle has no magazine. This guy is asking 250 OBO. I know that it is not worth that. He says that it shoots well. I think this rifle is only worth about a 100 bucks. What would you guys pay?

$250? That's whacko, even though it's a pre-warning 10/22 if it is, indeed, a 1977 (I'd check the barrel to be sure). Pre-warning 10/22s can command that kind of price, but only if in excellent condition. I paid less than that for a mint 1966 10/22. In that kind of condition, no way I'd pay $250. $100 is about right for a rough gun that you'll want to clean up and use as a shooter.

The seller is nuts. Way overpriced from what you described.

Thanks for the responses. I'm gonna offer 100. I'm sure he'll be offended and not even respond. He has some other carbines on there for 350. So, I'm not expecting a reasonable response.

I think you are a bit crazy to offer even $100.....it's junk now......even a rebuild might not be possible with the receiver all gouged up.....

Are you aware that you can buy a NEW 10/22 for $209 with no problem at all....Bass Pro Shop has the 10/22 target in Stainless listed for $299 for Goodness sakes

I wouldn't give $25 for what you describe, Try your local pawnshops if you want used. New one's are not expensive.

Bass Pro are high on their firearms. Good selection but high prices.

The only reason I was considering it was that I have an extra barrel and stock. I have taken trigger groups and receivers down to bare aluminum before and they looked nice. Anyway, I guess that is still a lot of money for a crappy specimen. I'll probably move on.

Hello there!

Different category of firearm as the current model is pre-ban, but I just paid $155. for a used 95% 10/22 Stainless 18 1/2" with synthetic stock.

Hope that helps!

My LGS has new ones for $200.

If it's that bad I'd advise him to just throw it in the trash. Junk is junk. It's not like it is some sort of rare, hand-made, work of art or something.

Even if you gave him $10 and just kept the receiver (for the SN) and bought all new everything you'd still be way over the cost of a new one.

Way too much for that kind of condition. $25 might be too much. Condition is everything, poor condition is simply that, poor.

Get a knew one, simple as that. If you aren't a fan of the plastic parts, I think you can buy steel parts just about anywhere. Am I correct?

Pre-ban only matters in some states. It doesn't mean anything in my state.

The last 10/22 that I bought was earlier this year and I paid $199 from my local LGS. I was in there just last week and they were still $199.
If there is rust on the barrel, I wouldn't give him $50 for it.

I would give him $50 if it shoots and cycles...$25 for parts is no-brainer imo even if it is f/d up...

For a $100 not sure...the receiver/bolt/trigger group even if exterior dinged up is worth it in parts IF they are in condition internally...

Stocks can be refurbished and/or customized for next to nothing...barrels come from new 18" take offs for very cheap...more for the 16" take offs.. to anything you want...

Scratch and dent can be a great bargain...
