Walnut Finger Groove for sale at Brownells



Log in to see fewer ads
I was at Brownells today and saw this beautiful finger groove 10/22. I thought someone here would be interested in it. They have it marked at $499

That was my buddy's rifle. I am kind of surprised it is still sitting there.

Did you snap a picture of the serial number to date it?

What's so special about it? It looks like pretty plain walnut to me. I bought a 1966 vintage 10/22 at a gun show recently with a beautiful figured walnut stock for $120. I sure wouldn't pay $499 for that one.

Brownells is open until 6pm I believe. It is a finger groove which are more expensive. I'm not a 10/22 guy so I don't know all the details of which are worth more except some research I did to sell a couple.

Regional markets play a role. In the area around Brownells you canít find a 10/22 for $120 in any condition. The annual DesMoines auction sells confiscated hunting rifles at full sticker. Marlin 60s with duck tape on the stock for $140.

The finger grooves in the wood, the quality of wood, metal trigger group, clean barrel (pre warning stamp), and others Iím forgetting all add value to this piece. Some people will pay extra for the sentimental surviver factor of an aged piece.

Wow! I never guessed that a fairly plain 10/22 would go for that amount of money! I realize I got a great deal on an original early walnut stocked 10/22, but I would have assumed the top value would be $300 at most!

Glades, is yours a finger groove? That seems to be a defining trait that drives the price up.

No, mine is not a finger groove but has MUCH nicer wood than that one and is otherwise an all original early 1966 version with all metal construction including the trigger unit. I guess I should carve some finger grooves into it... Thanks for all the info though. I'll have to be on the lookout for those finger groovy things!

Yeah, not gonna pay $500 for a stock 10/22 just for walnut with no figure to it and a groove cut out of the stock. To each his own but to me that 10/22 doesn't do anything more than my other 3 10/22's do, each of which I paid under $200 for, all acquired since 2014 (a Walmart Special 22" stainless with sporter stock, a 1970's era stock Carbine in mint condition with period-correct scope, and a walnut sporter stock 10/22 with aftermarket brushed stainless barrel).
