I just joined the forum so I am unsure if I selected the correct sub-forum for my first post. If I need to move it on over give me a heads up and I will re-post where needed.

A few years ago my father handed down his model 92 to me. As a young lad it was given to him by one of his uncles. It has an octagon barrel, is .22 caliber, serial # 400866, condition of the bluing is pretty darn good, no feckling, browning or patina. They must have really known how to blue metal in those days. The stock has taken a few hits over the years and the butt plate is partially broken off. It's also a little grimy around the grip.

My dad claims he shot many, many ground chucks with this as a kid but has not been fired since the late fifties when he got married. When he dropped it off he told me to never fire because modern shells use a different, more powerful powder than this gun was designed for. So I never have shot it and it lives in the back of my closet.

Not really looking to sell it, but I am concerned what value I should insure it for. Not to sure how to insert pictures yet, (and I have'nt taken any yet) but if needed I'm sure I could figure it out.

Hard to place a value on it. But you can shoot it with modern ammo as long as its not high velocity stuff. Its the bolt that was redesigned to accommodate today's higher pressure stuff, but theres many here who shoot standard or better yet low velocity modern ammo in theirs.
