Anyone got any info on the model A-1? One for sale near me for $150. I have never seen one of these before.

Looks like an A-1 DL, I owned one a while back. Pretty fun little gun, and I'd say worth the price since it appears to have the complete peep sight. It's obviously been refinished though, so $150 is likely tops.

Thanks, I really had no idea if that was a fair price or not.
Any idea on when it was manufactured? I couldn’t see a serial number in any of the pics.
Got one more of it.

That peep sight goes for $100 or more on the auction sites. Especially with the second aperture like that has. I have an A1 with just open sights. The gun is built like a tank, over built and heavy duty. I use mini-mags in mine as standard velocity ammo in mine sometimes malfunctions. Extra magazines are hard to find.

No serial numbers on the A1. The A1DL was manufactured 1941-46, according to Brophy.

Thanks for the info, but it looks like I waited too long to PM the seller and now it's sold.

Oh well, most of the thrill is in the hunt anyway!

I have an A1-DL and it is a great shooter. I have the beavertail, thicker, forearm and it feels good in the hand. Original magazines are very hard to find but you can modify a Model 80 magazine to work with a little effort and a round file. Whoever refinished it did a nice job. A Lyman 48 with the MR base is a great upgrade to the rear peep sight. Mine went full auto a few years back because of a worn our sear. Quite a surprise.

Too bad you missed it. I have found an A-1 in a pawn shop , in excellent condition and picked it up for $75 a while back . For a late 1930's rifle , it will stay around 1 inch at 50 yards with CCI std vel ammo.

Always good to be a bit wary of the A1 & 50 models...
they do have a tendancy to go runaway...

so always check your springs & test with no more than two bullets at a time until you are sure of it at a public range.
