Sorry, not enough ID info. Savage/Stevens/Springfield made many models of .22 rifles. "Mod 52 I think" isn't enough.

The model 52 also known as the Schuetzen Junior & was made made from 1897 to 1916. According to the 1999 Standard Catalog of Firearms:

i have it with me now

"manufactured by by J.Stevens arms company"

"model 52-B"

marked "springfeild" just before above

small circle with a 18 on barrel where it meets the action.


any more info would be good. i also would like some resources or someone who is somewhat of an expert if the feild of these type rifles to give me an idea on the value. lastly. how might i go about selling this if its really worth sevral thousand dollars?

Man oh man are you going to be mad at me.
I did some more looking around for info & after I reread your first post I realized that you said "bolt action" & I was thinking lever action. Great big OOOOPPS!!!

The bolt action values are a bit different:

V.G.-$200
Good-$100
Fair-$70
Poor-$50

Feel free to give me a cyber smack upside the head!!!
I can't imagine how excited your had to be thinking you had a high dollar rifle.
I think I owe you 1 thousand apologies!!!!!!!!!!

SSSSSMMMMMMAAAAAAACCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

lol, its ok. after a bit of thought i decided you were pry reading the values of a break action or "crackshot." i have found those to be quite valuable. in a way im glad, i really wanted to clean the stray cats out of here with CB shorts. and if you want to get technical about it, you owe me 1500 to 9000 apoligies ;)

j/k
