I am looking at a Stevens single shot .22. I believe it is a 15A. It was made from 1948-1965. This particular model was made in 1948. The gun has not been fired or even cleaned in over 25 years. One of the screws that connect the stock to the barrell is missing, rendering it not shootable. The owner even says its not in very good condition. I have not actually seen it yet, but I am going to take a look at it on friday. If the bore is decent and If it seems like a fixable gun, I think I might buy it off of him. I have looked up the gun on gunbroker.com and auctionarms.com and a couple of results from a quick Google search to check prices. They range from 60$ to about 140$ depending on condition. From what the guy has told me about the gun and without even seeing it yet, I dont think I'd offer him more than 50$ Topps. What do you think? Is 50$ even too much? The one on gunbroker.com is 65$, and it is complete, and in good condition (per seller). Here is the link:

What do you think? Am I wasting my time, or is it worth a shot? I like to do a little bit of gunsmithing and don't mind doing a little bit of work on the gun.

What say you, forum members?

I would think 45 to 70 would be fair pricing. Mine was fifteen dollars at a yard sale back in the eighties......Essex
