    I don't usually sell firearms, I just accumulate more, but I'm really tempted in this time of panic buying to sell one of my 10/22's. It's a NIB model 1149, the 22" stainless barrel model with a birch checkered sporter stock. Here is the link to Ruger:

    Any estimates on how much this might bring right now if I were to sell it?

    Going for $450 to $500 in Vegas. FTF sale. Standard polymer 18in one is going for $350. I paid $250 two months ago for mine!! Crazy time.

    Bought mine not to long ago from a LGS. I think it was $273. Prices have gone kinda crazy on 10/22's lately though. Don't sell it you'll regret it later. I love mine put a Nikon 22lr 3-9x40 on it with a deadnutz mount. Great shooter.

    Well, I did sell it. It's not gone yet, but I am having a little bit of seller's remorse. I don't know why, though, because beautiful as it is, I just haven't connected with it.

    Too pretty to shoot, but not a collectors item. If I'd a kept it, I think I would have replaced the birch stock with a walnut one. But then I would have been even less inclined to shoot it. So, I figured now is a great time to sell without losing money on it.

    The silver lining? With the money from the sale I'm gonna get my new G23 out of layaway!

    As long as you have another 10/22 than you made a good move. Everyone red blooded American needs at least one 10/22 in the stable. As pretty as she was I woulda shot the hell out of her for you though. :supergrin:

    ditto,
    What kind of walnut stock were you going to go with. I have been looking for a more standard size stock in walnut to put on mine, but haven't come across anything yet.

    Thanks
