I was handed down a model 39 from my dad who got it from his dad. The serial number looks to be 5500. Is there any way to find out how old this .22 is and maybe what it is worth?

If it is a Model 39 with no letter prefix it would date back to the early 1920's. A picture would help with putting a value on the rifle, because condition of firearm has so much to do with value.

I think if you sold it, you would regret it given all the family history of the rifle. I have several hand tools of my grandfather's that I use almost daily. Also his Elgin pocket watch with "December 25,1907" engraved inside the back. It gets wound a couple of times a month and still keeps correct time. My point is that no matter what the $$$ value, you will never be able to replace the rifle and it's history.
