I acquired this gun at an estate sale and was wondering if anyone knows anything about it and/or possible value. I am hoping to take it to the Indy1500 this weekend and sell it. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I think the receiver is cast or something with a black finish. It had been shot a few rounds before I had it. I put ~21 rounds through her to make sure everything was functional, after checking it over of course:) . Other than that it has a few handling bumps but really close to NIB status. btw... The gun is still around, I didn't make it to the 1500.

I've seen a few around here before, but not lately. The pawn shop that used to handle them usually sold them around $150. That was about 2 years ago.
I've never owned one, so I can't comment about its reliability or function.

Thanks Panther! I have no idea what this thing was worth. I would prefer to have a more "typical" rifle i.e. another Marlin60 or Remmy speedmaster...;)
