Just got it back from the Gun Smith. Said it is good to shoot.

He told me it was in good shape for how old the gun is. Built in July 1932. Where can I find a ruff value for this guy?


The only thin is the stock looks like someone tried to re-lacquer it. I need to sand it down and get it back to how it should look.

Were can I find some instructions to work the stock?

I can not wait to shoot this thing.

This is what I found in a 2009 Standard Catalog of Firearms:

Model 41SB
Same as Model 41A except for use with .22 shot cartridge.
Barrel is smoothbore.

Exc. V.G. Good Fair Poor
250 200 150 100 75
NOTE: Smoothbore Models add 50 percent.

From 1930 to 1970 the Remington Company produced a variety
of single-shot and repeating .22 caliber rifles. The values
for these are much the same, consequently, they are listed for
reference only.
Model 33
Model 510 X
Model 33 NRA
Model 511 A
Model 34
Model 511 P
Model 34 NRA
Model 511 X
Model 341 A
Model 512 A
Model 341 P
Model 512 P
Model 341 SB
Model 512 X
Model 510
Model 514
Model 510 P
Model 514 P
Model 510 SB
Model 514 BC

I bought a remington 41P and the story goes that it was sold as a kid's first rifle for about $8.00 and as such most of them were abused and did not survive.

Current value somewhere higher than $300 for a 41P in pretty rough shape.

I'm not sure how rare the 33 is now but the best way to tell is look for comparable sales.

As far as restoring the stock, check the value first. An old botched refinish job might actually be worth more than a decent new refinish. Buying a replacement stock might be a good idea if you can find one.

Thank you for looking this up for me. I will check the bore out.

A replacement stock is a good idea. I will see if I can find one. Thank you for the input.

From what I see the bore looks to be smooth. I definitely need to clean this think. I did notice one small rust spot on the barrel.

If the bore is really smooth, what you have is a garden gun, designed for housewives to shoot snakes and other vermin in the garden with .22 shot shells.

I'm not sure what that does to value but I would probably not buy one since it's not really useful for target shooting.

I had seen this a few months back.

The one I have does not have serial numbers.

try taking the stock off, sometimes the serial number is where you can't see it. every 33 I've seen has had a serial #. it's a great gun
