    In giving condition of weapons, it is usually made in percentages.

    Brand new in the box with all paperwork and never fired is 100%. Then you go 98%, 95, 90, 80, 70, 60 and so on as a percentage of the bluing left on the weapon. You should note any dings to the stock or metal and any model variations. From this I'll give you what I can

    1) Rem 740 "woodmaster' 30-06' had two models ADL and BDL, the former having a select wood stock. Fancier grade.

    ADL - 90% - $250
    BDL - 90% - $295

    2) Rem 722 .222

    A - 90% - 250
    ADL 300
    BDL 340

    3) No idea on muzzle loading Thomson

    4) Savage 99 - there are 24 different model types of the 99. Which one do you have?

    5) Springfield Armory 1898 S/N:417155
    If you are referring to the Mauser M98 (made by Springfield) then the utility/hunting grade is in 60% $35

    6) No idea, sounds like it should be used for parts.

    7) Norinco model .22ATD No listing found for 22 rifle.

    8)Marlin 25MN 90% - $80

    9) Ruger 10/22 Carbine - Stainless Target Barrel - Laminate stock - 80X Scope. Typo on Scope? 8X maybe?

    100% - $330
    95% $ 225

    Good luck!

    This may be a help to you and then again it may not. I purchased a Marlin 25MN about 2 years ago at the local Walmart. It has a hardwood stock and it came with a Tasco 3x9x32mm scope on it. I paid $99.00 on sale at the time of purchase. Although I have seen them at Gander Mountain in Kenosha Wisconsin selling for $179.00 with no scope within the last month. Mine is the standard 22Mag caliber and I can tell you they are very acurate or at least mine is. I was told they are the cheaper version of the Model 882 although there is very little difference to the avarage set of eyes.

    As for the Remington model 740 in 30-06 that you have inherrited. Again an excellent tool for sure. I have a 760 Pump action and my friend has the 740 which is now been replaced with the 7400 model. The only problem he has ever had is they have a tendency to jam under heavy use. I paid $249.00 for mine back in the 1970's. I have seen several of these over the years for sale at local gun shows and at Gander Mountain go for around $300.00 to $350.00 that were in excellent condition. I once turned down a 740 in a 270 Caliber for $225.00 at a local show. But remember that the 30-06 Caliber is a great caliber and everyone seems to want at least one of them in there collection. As for me I ended up buying a 30-06 in stanless steel with a composite stock for $229.00 at Walmart and its a bolt action.

    I'm more inclined to think that #5, the Springfield 1898, is a US Rifle, model 1898 Krag, and they go for a whole bunch more than a shooter-grade Mauser. My Blue Book gives values of 450 for 60% up to 3500 for 100%, and my Blue Book is 4 years old. I haven't seen a Krag, in my area of the country, with a price of less than a grand in a long time. Rifle or carbine? There is a price difference.

    The Norinco ATD is, I believe, a copy of the Browning 22 automatic rifle. I owned one for about two months, back in the late 80s. They were going, new, back then for 100 bucks. It's not listed in my Blue Book, but I wouldn't think, even now with inflation, it'd be worth much more than 150 brand new in the box.

    I need to know some info about the model 740 woodmaster, like is it safe to use it deer hunting. I thought at one time there was an issue about the gun being safe

    I don't know if your question was ever answered, but I have had a 30-06 caliber 740 Woodmaster since 1958. This particular rifle is a carbine as opposed to a full length rifle. I find it very comfortable when hunting in heavy brush. I have used it exclusively for deer and bear hunting. I used 180 grain for deer and 220 grain for bear. I have never had a problem with this gun from day one. It has never jammed or had to be repaired. Seeing as how you have no experience with this gun as to it's condition, I suggest you take it to a good gunsmith and have it checked to make sure it is in good condition. Also, if you do not have the manual on the gun, then I suggest you ask him how to disassemble the gun for cleaning and lubrication. That is something I do before in the middle and at the end of hunting season. Good luck with this gun.
