Antique Remington? Model 12C NRA Target
Has any one seen a site on the net that deals with older guns?
A friend of mine came by yesterday afternoon with a Remington model 12C NRA Target Model. It's a neat older gun, made around 1925, all seems to be there. Lyman Tang rear sight and front globe sight. Also has a set of mounts for a sling. They attach to the pistol grip at the rear, and is part of the magazine tube mount in the front.
It looks to be about 80-85% finish wise. A grey looking patina, is the color of most of the metal. The butt stock is the worst with some splitting being present. Not bad, but not good either. The forestock is worn some from use.
Bore seems bright. Rifling good.
Anybody have a clue what a older gun like this is worth?
It's a neat old rifle, good and tight, looks like you could still shoot it a bit with standard velocity ammo., as he had shot it with .22 shorts.
