I bought this gun from a guy I know about 2-3 years ago. I haven't seen one like it before and was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about it (value, number made, etc.). It's inscribed US Bicentennial 1776-1976 on the barrel. I haven't shot it since I bought it, and it hasn't been shot much if at all in the past 15-20 years. The wood looks new with no dents or scratches, and the checkering is still nice and sharp.

I can't offer you any specific info on the rifle. I can say with 100% certainty that if you got that rifle for 200 bucks, you should have been wearing a mask and had a loaded gun on your person, because you stole it! :)

Not sure what its worth, but I can say with 100% certainty that YOU SUCK!!!*
*Translation: You got a helluva deal on a very nice gun. :)
I'm sure you'll find its worth a bit more than $200.

Blue Book says they made 19,999 of them. I have an old Blue Book, so I won't quote a value.

Somebody really like to use the buffer, I don't see a single sharp edge, sigh.

$200 was a hella good deal. It's in good shape also from the Looks of it. Note though the commemorative collectors like em in mint condition in box.

1976 UNITED STATES BICENTENNIAL 30-30 cal. 19999 mfg. $650
Engraved pewter plated receiver, medallion in stock, 20" round barrel
w/ Wall Rack having simulated deer antlers holding gun
I suspect that amount would be a bit higher these days, though that me be for an unfired specimen
you certainly got a steal--I have seen commemoratives that have obviously seen alot of use got for close to twice that

Thanks for the help everyone. I knew that it was well worth the $200 that I spent for it.
