Hello Doc,

Sure... it was manufactured in April of 1912. The value is highly dependent upon the graded condition.

Hello Doc,

The graded condition is a fair bit better than most Model 1906 rifles found today. The value is in the $1000 - $1250 range.

Thanks Bert.I just gave 500 for it.That makes me feel better.But the story behind the gun is what I like.The gun was given to my Stepdad from a old man that found it in a hollow Beech tree in Eastern Ky.It is in great shape and shoots really good.

I have had folks tell me they "found in the rafters in the basement of a house we just bought", or "found it in my grnadmothers's attic in a trunk", and even "found it behind the backseat of my uncle's pickup after he died". But that "find" may just top them all. What I really want to know is why did they ever look there?

Well It was an old man named Rob Johnson and he said he was squirrel hunting in Pikeville Kentucky and a squirrel went in a hollow beech tree and he was going to smoke it out and found the gun.He said he got so excited that he forgot about the squirrel.Im just amazed how clean the barrel and all the metal is and its in great shape.

It must have been coated with bees wax to keep it that good. Great story!

Hello L Boone,

I might suggest starting a new post for your rifle. Send us some photos and let us take a look at it. Your rifle was manufactured during 1906, the first year of production.

I have a model 1906 22 with corn cob pump lever. Nice action, shoots very well. Any idea what this particular gun is worth?

Hello Jim,

The rifle is in very poor condition. There is no bluing, the metal is very pitted, and the slide is a replacement. It has no collector value and probably only worth $150 or so.

It may not be a replacement, there were different models of the 1906.

I have a 1906 with a slide just like the one on yours. So, it could be original.
