Re: Noble .22 slide action rifle
noble firearms haydenville, massachusetts 1946-1971. they produced a line of utility grade 22 rimfire rifles and shotguns. the 22's range from the basic manually cocked 22 bolt action single shot to lever action (m275) tubular magazine model. the shotguns were mostly pump actions with a couple of semi included. all were functional but not pretty and sold reasonable well until quality control (or the lack of) got the better of them.
the model 235 was their pump action 22 rimfire tube feed rifle manufactured from about 1951 until about 1971?. not having a clearly visable serial number means your rifle was manufactured before 1968.
you want find much in print about this company because no one considers their products collectible. but most of thier line is covered in the larger pricing guides. standard catalog of firearms, gundigest book of modern gun values are two i use a lot. niether of these two rate any of nobles 22's above $100 but the last model 235 i saw at a gun show (about a 95% gun) was sold for $225.
