    All depends upon condition, but in good - exc; you're looking at 140 -220 for what I'm assuming is a Bronco model. I just sent a PM with my email.

    No need to disagree, I stated that IF in good - excellent condition, the value could be in the 140-220 range. However, in my PM to Ernie; after seeing the pics which he emailed to me, "I'd say that in existing condition, it's value is between $70-85. A little TLC could put it back into the $125 range."

    I've seen a number of these at gun shows in the last few months in California, Arizona, and Nevada. Asking prices in nice shape with no box ranges from $150 to $200. Also included at the same price are the rifle/shotgun combinations.

    FIE was an imported of firearms from all over the world, they were importing Rossi and Taurus in the 70's as well as Sako from Finland and various French and Spanish made shotguns and pistols. Your rifle was cataloged as "Bronco" single shot made in America (no company noted) and was available in .22 and .410.

    000 steel wool & gun oil, followed by 0000 steel wool & gun oil will work wonders in bringing the look of that rifle up to spec :)
