Price Check on Erma EM-1

319 2
This is a two part question:

1) EM-1 in like new condition,stock is 100% as well as metal finish,What's a good price to pay if purchasing? Wondering if I got burnt.

2) After replacing the rear sight that was missing I have a weaver scope model V-22 left over.I'm sure it will find it's way to another one of my plinkers but I was wondering what the value of the scope is? It has weaver "tip off" mounts and is in like new condition ecept it's missing one of the adjustment covers. Weaver said there were no parts avalible since the scope was over 25 yrs old.

Thanks, Al

I'm not an expert and I don't have a blue book, but I would say at least $300. I just bought one sight unseen, for $75 because the guy didn't know what is was worth. Turns out it's in about 85-90% condition and I've been offered at lot more.
There are two on GunsAmerica right now, one has a stock that looks like crap and it has no clip, for $175. The other it says 99% but no rear sight(comes with scope) for $345.



I just saw one sell on Gunbroker for $344


and another awhile back for $385


At the gun shows I've been to, I usually see them in the $200-$300 range, but with the normal dents and dings in the wood.
Keep in mind that the clips are hard to find and a 15rd usually goes for around$80-100
If it's a magnum I would assume it would be worth even more, but I haven't seen one in a couple of years.
Like I said I'm no expert, just my opinion.
I've got 2 and love them.

.22LR cal., US M1 Carbine copy, 10 or 15 rnd. magazine, 18" barrel, rear adjustable aperature sight, 5.6 lbs., mfg'd. 1966 - 1997.

Some typical values: ["Blue Book of Gun Values", 20th Ed.]
100% = $365. [NIB]
_98% = $295.
_95% = $250.
_90% = $215.
_80% = $190.

The "Weaver" V-22 is a great rimfire scope; it has clear optics, adjusts smoothly, and is a 7/8" tube, vs the usual 3/4" tube. :)
It was made by the 'old' "W.R. Weaver Co.", El Paso, TX. The current "Weaver" could care less about your little gem...... :(

Parts maybe available from:

Weaver Scope Repair Service
1121 Larry Mahan Drive, Suite B
El Paso, TX 79925
Phone: 1-915-593-1005

Good Luck.....! ! :)
