They very rarely come up for sale in any condition, and I really don't track them. Just over 3000 were made, and about half converted to centerfire, but a lot left the country (Europe and South America) and never came back, making them scarcer than the number would suggest.

IIRC, I GLADLY paid around $1500 for my rimfire, in decent but not remarkable shape, about 3 years ago.

Have had the centerfire version for many years.

Cleaning rods are a big issue, there seems to be NO consensus. I wish Bob Hill were still alive. Got the info for my book from Burt Kellerstedt, just before he passed away.
