    A friend just picked up a Noble .22 Pump, Model 235E. The blueing is about 90%, the stock finish is almost nonexistant and the bore is good. What would an approximate value be?

    There's not a lot of information on Nobel, 1946 - 1971 { one source states 1953 to 1971 }. They manufactured and furnished a line of shotguns and 22 rifles to several store chains and also sold them under their own names. They were also importers of several Spanish shotguns . Considered to be good but plain utilitarian firearms, there's zero collectors interest and all have a low value. I can't find a listing for the 235 but the Model 236 is listed at 100 in excellent down to 50 in poor. When Nobel folded their tents, Numrich GPC bought up the remaining spare parts.

    Those were pretty much bottom line guns, and looked it, plus they gave a lot of trouble. If the one your friend bought works, fine, but I hope he didn't pay very much for it. It is hard to set a value, but the .22's often are tagged for as little as $60 on the used gun racks. BTW, tell him not to try to take it apart.

    Thank you for the responses. I do believe my buddy got taken some. Oh well, we all live and learn, I just wish he had checked with me before jumping and making a purchase.

    Actually, Noble had some good ideas. The goal was to make guns in a new way, using as many hardware store parts as possible, and less expensive methods of manufacturing. But they ignored appearances and the gun world was just not ready for that kind of innovation, even if it cost less.
