But it was funner than shooting my Annie I woulda still placed 5th and burned $50 in better ammo
Left my Kimber in the truck as a loaner

Thanks for your posts fellas

It's hard to find a decent M1922 for less than $900 these days. I have two and would be hard pressed to part with either one, and certainly not for $900. One of them is an early, unaltered M2, so it's worth a premium to begin with. The other one is an unaltered early "Sales" version M1.
Both are fantastic shooters.
I have a Win. M52 as well, and while it may be slightly more accurate, it is a different kind of shooting experience than the M1922s.

What would be a reasonable price for one of the rifles? My reason for asking there is one posted on a local gun board and they are asking $2300.00 which I thought was too much. It is advertised as a 1903 M1 with M2 modification. Only one picture in the ad and not a close up. It appears to be in good condition with quite a bit of the blueing left considering the age. He is describing it as a collectable.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can share.

Too expensive (by 100+%) for what it is.

And they're all "collectible" so . . . . .

Thanks for the reply. I figured it was overpriced. Maybe he is spending too much time looking at Gunbroker prices.

Yeah, there's a lot of that going around.

Lots of people don't seem to understand the difference between dream pricing and actual selling prices or values. It's easy enough to see what things are actually selling for in the "completed auctions" on Gunbroker, but few bother to look there. I always do if I'm interested in buying something . . . .

I do the same when looking for true price.
I also agree the mention 1922M11 is double the price of a correct 1922M11 complete rifle.

In my mind it's not to be labled as a 1922M2 but as 1922M11. Which is a 1922M1 upgraded to M2.
