I have a Remington 40X .22 rimfire that is somewhat unigue. My father was friends with a fellow named John Moscow. John was a national small bore champion and in 1964 he won the 40X in a match. I bought the rifle several years ago and it has a silver metal insignia on the stock that says 1964 small bore champion. It is a beautiful rifle with a Hart barrel. Hasn't been shot in years as I'm more into centerfire benchrest and varminting. I'm looking to sell it or trade for a custom short action. Can someone tell me what a 40X rimfire is worth these days?

Personally, if John M. was a good friend or someone special, I would keep it. The relative few hundred dollars you get will be gone and you will never get that rifle back again. You will get a basic rifle with no special value that in a few years will be relegated to sit on a shelf somewhere.

Apparently Mr. M. was special to your dad and their are not lots of things in this world that are special.

I'm with Chester on this one. If you absolutely have no want or attachment to the rifle I would check with the family of Mr. Moscow. Could be he has a Grandchild or Nephew that is a competitor or hunter that this rifle would be of great interest too.

We have an unwritten rule in our family that stipulates if a firearm (or other item of family value) is given too or purchased from another, that the giver/seller is ALWAYS given first right of refusal before the item is passed on. It is a respectable thing to do.
