1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I just received a model 61 rifle. It shoots long rifle and not magnun. The rifle is in good shape. I would say around 90%. I was wondering what the price of a rifle like this would be? Thanks, Hoosier

    If it is 95%; I would say you can get $800 to $1000 for it. Check out the ones for sale on gunbroker.com. Ed

    Probably $600-$650. I've got one in 96-98% condition that I've been offered $700 for. I see lots of kooks at gun shows asking $800 or more for ones in worse shape.

    Pre-war manufacture has small forearm. "WRF" marked round barrel is rare - front of receiver must be marked "W.R.F."
    Watch for fake boxes and hanging tags on this model, especially with rifles in over 95%+ original condition.

    Claybirder, what mount is that on your Model 63? I have an N Model Weaver on mine but it is 3/4". I would be interested in switching to a mount like yours if I didn't have to drill new holes. Where are your holes drilled?

    Hoosier, you have a scarce variation. If you want to sell it, you should show pictures.

    I (we, the Mrs.) have a Model 61 that I purchased in 1953 from a Lawton, OK pawn shop. I know I didn't give much, I was in the Army and didn't have much to give. Always joked that it was a Christmas gift for the Mrs.! Round barrel and a small crack in the stock near the trigger guard. Probably 60/70%, good little shooter and not for sale! Ser.# 136228

    A Model 61 SLLR sold last week at auction for $900. A Model 61 chambered for magnum w/scope brought $1400. This auction was at Ottawa, Ks. Long guns, wheel guns and semi's. A collector sold over 50 guns, probably half had never been fired. A Winchester Model 73/ 44-40 was top gun at $3750. A John Wayne in box, never fired Model 94 was $2050. There were several flats of misc old style AA trap loads. I think the same guy took them all at $80/flat! Not much of a bargin unless he was after the old style hulls!
