I acquired a Remington Model 12-C .22 Caliber Pump Action Rifle and I want to know how much it might be worth. The latest patent stamped on it is 1912.
your remington 12C would value between 200 fair-400 vg at auction or to a remington collector depending on how the buyer see the condition,,dealers would proably offer 150-200 for it.. again depending on condition..
You left out the fact that it also very much depends on the model 12 it is! A "C" model is more collectible for true Remington collectors and has a higher value, in fact much higher value than what you indicated, depending on the overall condition. A mint Remington 12C model can go as high as $1000,00 in "mint" condition.
so why did you ask for an opinion on the value of your gun if you already know that a 12C is "supposed" to bring $1000 if mint? Very few mint 12-c exist. Hence the big price tag. Good for you if you have one. But don't jump on a guy for giving an opinion when asked for it.
I don't think I would sell my 12c for less than $1000. $150 is a joke..A true price is about $600 to $700 depending on condition.
hello well i guess i should come back with a responce ,,and justify my value i gave ,,my standard catalog of firearm values 2009 lists 3 different models of a md12C remington 22 pump,,a model 12c in exc condition is valued at 550,,a md 12c NRA target model is listed as valued at 750 exc,, and theres a 12CS that is chambered for the 22 remington special and it's value is 500 exc ,,,,there were high grade models like the 12D peerless,the 12E expert and the 12F premier that are high end model 12's that are 1000fair-3000exc but the C isn't in that league in my value books!!,,if it's dead mint in the original box with hang tags it might bring 1000 but in the real world i'll stick with my original values because i beleive there realistic sell values in private sale situations,,
i agree with bigcurt,i set up at gun show all the time and they sit on your table for $350 in good condition 12c models
1000 WONT TOUCH MINE
I won't comment much but any 12-C you can get in Very Good condition for $350 I'd grab it, especially if it has a lyman on it that's 100-125+ by itself. I wouldn't say they are falling off the shelved but there are a fair amount of 12-C's out there in mint condition, I have at least 10 of them including F's and even gold inlay and know other people who also have dozens of them. It's harder to find short only not mark gallery is better condition. I just paid 2,000 for a mint 12-C's with special accessories that are extremely difficult to find and I believe to have been a deal.
Just at the show a guy at a 12-F that was very good to excellent metal but the varnish was mostly melted off and cleaned with steel wood and he was asking 9,0000 for it, I laughed and when I passed back by it was gone. Heck I would serious consider an offer for my gold inlay for that kind money.
I have a remmington 12 cs 22 that was my grandfathers.It has a rear site on the butt? I do not know how to rate the conditon but my father inlaw said it is in very good shape.
Depending on which lynman site it is, it's worth 100-125.
Typically a CS in very good shape is worth in the 400-500 value the problem is unless they are collector quality most people don't want to deal with the ammo.
If your selling you probably should post on gunbroker.com it's one of the best with the widest audience, small cost and only if you sell. You will not have any problem selling an excellent condition 12-C (made in 1925).
That would even sell easily at the gun show there but your get less from a dealer.
Thanks for the helpful discussion.I have a old model 12 that was my uncles.Long octagonal barrel and a side of the reciever mounted scope.Just wondering what it was worth,if anything.I'd never sell it,it's seen a whole lot of family use over the years.I put a new firing pin in it about 35 years ago and I stay away from hot ammo.Shoots great.If it ain't broke,don't fix it.
I believe the receiver of your firearm may have been drilled and tapped to take the side mounted scope, which affects collectors value. Original Condition is what would determine value, even if it is mechanically sound with a good bore. Without a picture it's too hard to guesstimate. Obviously you are not writing about a 12C?
Have a look at NRA guidelines on condition, and what EXC actually means, what Mint means (New as in unused pristine), and we go downward fast from EXC.
I seen a 12C sell for $710 yesterday at a public auction. And let me tell you, it was a really nice condition. I had no idea what these guns were worth, but I was surprised to see it sell for over 700.
I've seen 12C's in mint condition sell for a LOT more then that. 12-C in mint can easily bring 1,200.- with a box and papers 1,500.
I have a model 12-C rememington .22 pump with the gold inlay and your comment is the first I have ever seen mention this detail. I have been trying to find more information on it for years. Judging by the SN, it was made between 1917-1921. If you have more info on these with gold inlay, no scroll work or anything else special, I would appreciate it. Find me at jerry kohl 72 at g mail.. thank you.
You can find me by clicking the service desk on the remington society website or you can post pictures and including one of the serial no and I can add whatever I can but pictures are a must.
Here are some pics

You can buy gold leaf paper you just rub into engraving/lettering, that's what was done here.
I have a Remington Target Model 12-c NRA in what I would call excellent condition with nice petina. What would something like this be worth. It has the Lyman tall sights which both flip up?
500.00 to me
I have a 12-c and it looks brand new.I had no idea it was worth that much.thanks for the info.
