Hi everyone! I’m brand new here. I need help. Someone was pestering me about trading for the Challenge edition AMT that I have and knew nothing about until half an hour ago. Thank you Sam for some awesome info. I guess what I really want to know is what’s it worth? It has a Hogue stock (I think), SN CS00216, bull barrel, I don’t know the difference between the triggers or the bolts. I’m going to try and put pics up. Any help is much appreciated and thanks a million in advance.

Welcome to the forum.

There are a lot of experts here on these old AMTs.
Depending on condition and originality, it could be worth $1000.

Iíll let the experts chime in. They could probably use some pictures to help with the analysis.

Iím looking at it as a collector piece, with my guesstimate.

Sent you a private message. I may be able to help?

What options and what brand/style of stock can make considerable differences in price, especially to a collector vs. someone who just wants something to shoot. The popularity and reputation of Kidd rifles, triggers, options have kinda cut into the AMT Challenge Edition prices IMO. I have a couple I doubt I would get my money back on. Although they do have Jewell triggers might help but the price of the great Kidd triggers have devalued the Jewell also. Why pay a premium for a Jewell which is a fishing weight if it craps out and a Kidd can be repaired?

If you have the pics on your comp, you could use a third party host to get them here. There is a detail description how to in the main forum page. I'm now using the "free" service of Imgur.com It works nice and easy for me. If you a walk I can do that just PM me.
As for your rifle, depends on what you have with it that really ups the price. They came with factory targets, cleaning tool, manual, depending on trigger-manual for that, depending on stock choice, which model as they had at least 3 and I think 5-6, big factor also is the location but according to that serial number it was made in Placerville, CA.
A big factor that makes all the difference of low v high is was it "made" by AMT Custom Shop. The Custom Shop did sell parts and receivers, some people bought the receiver and built their own, since AMT Custom Shop made the receiver (FFL Booked) their name would be on it even as a "build" by others.
So show us what you got!
They can avg. 500-1000

In the old days I would build all my custom rifles off of AMT 25/22 receivers.

As stated above, today there are so many options that didnít exist when AMT built the Challenge edition.

I still use steel receivers, but now I use mainly Kidd parts, including the barrels.

Looks nice, that is the plain/general stock AMT CS used. Not sure about what trigger it has. What markings does the barrel have and how does the muzzle/crown look?
Once we see/know that we can make a better guess.

If I was looking to sell it, I would put it in the classifieds here on RFC.
