    Wow. It is not uncommon to find small defensive pistols that are decades old and still more or less mint-in-box, but I would think it is rare for 22 rifles. Any idea why it was never used?

    Picture a little fuzzy around barrel and action. Looks like rust? Maybe just picture.
    That would help determine value. Mint gun in box from 1948 is rare. Any Gun!

    Your rifle if in mint condition without the box is worth around $250. With the box you can add another $100. If not mint, the value drops greatly.

    I am looking at one of these but it has significant rust. I want to pay a fair price. How much do you suppose I should offer? No box. I can't make out all of the barrel marks. Also, it looks like the mfg. date might be/could be Nov., 1950? Is that possible? I can take a picture but I don't know if the rust, etc. will show in true defination.
