any idea how much they go for? the manual looks like it was printed in the early 80s, i think 83?
It has 1 mag i think. I think its a wood stock.

Depends on the condition. Older ones tend to hold better value since they don't build them like that anymore (no pun intended)

The iron sites, stock, and trigger housing are way better on the older ruger than the current ones in production which makes them a little more desirable.

Average 10/22 goes for around $200+ but if you have an older one you will probably better offers. I scored one made in 2004 and the difference is pretty significant. From the quality of wood to the use of aluminum instead of plastic for the trigger housing the older models were just better built.

But again this is all based on condition.

In San Diego a new one will cost you about 300 + tax and fees unless you get it on sale (always on sale some where)

Check out the sales for black friday and you might find some at Sportsman Warehouse, Bass Pro etc. I have seen some new standard carbines for $199 + fees. Here they are $239 + fees regularly. The older ones were constructed better generally as more attention to detail. A lot of people prefer more metal than plastic. Some of the wood was better in the past too. I have one with a walnut stock for instance. I lean towards good used, but you may have to give more unless a person doesn't know what they have. Sometimes on the older ones, I change to the newer magazine release, install the auto bolt mod and polish the trigger group and bolt..Then I go shoot like crazy!

In the CG marketplace, usually too much.
In reality, $150-175.

I think Dick's Sporting Goods is going to have a Black Friday deal of $169 for a 10/22.

When bought the latest 10/22 Takedown, I asked Turner's if they would be interested in buying one of my old, early 80's 10/22 rifles, still in excellent shape. They offered me $40. I laughed. IMO, a reasonable price for an old 10/22 in good to excellent condition is $125-175. If it has condition issues (worn parts, surface rust, worn bluing), then about $50-100.

How are the metal trigger guards better than polymer? I've owned both. All it is is different materials. Functionally, both are the same and the trigger guard is not a stress bearing part of the rifle. Makes no difference in the function of the rifle.

A used 10/22 should be in the $90 to $130 range. However, every seller thinks they are sitting on a gold mine so we've all seen prices well north of $130.

Shops are always going to offer half or less than half of actual value because they still have to make a profit. It's just like trading your car in for a new/newer car at a dealership. Never trade with a shop. You are always better off selling on your own.

$100-250 is what i see 80's era 10/22's going for and i do believe they are much better built then the ones from the last decade or so ...

Offer him $150 and consider it a decent deal. For what 10/22's cost, I can never see the reason to sell one.

The problem is private sales DROS is a more than new/used from a gun dealer.
Low end for private is 35, high end is north of $50. When the buyer realizes the total cost,
well just buy a new one. So you have to take this into consideration when selliing and setting asking price. Not sure on this, but I think who ever does the DROS also has to collect sales tax. So, no help there either. I just bought a used one from a gun dealer in
very good shape for $165. DROS is capped at $25 per the Regs.

No sales tax on PPT. DROS/transfer fee is a fixed $35 total.

If you decide you want this, I will PM you his contact info and you guys can settle the meeting place to do the PPT.

If he includes the 30 rd mag, He knows that it will have to be sold disassembled to comply with CA Laws, but thats up to him. All I know is that he wants to sell this rifle and possibly the 10 rd and 30 rd mag.

hes using the funds from this to purchase a Kimber 1911.

That magazine doesn't look like it dissembles as many of the older ones do not...

While yes you can get them on black friday and such for sub 200 I would not sell an older one for less then 220ish. Thats the usual sale price I see them for sale at Turners. Since the older ones have the all metal trigger pack and the better paint I'd say its worth more then a modern one. Even if the stock is a bit scratched.

Thanks for the link. Found mine was made in 1981. Purchased from Gemco back in 1981 or 1982 for around $85. Didn't dawn on me until just now, but this my first rifle purchase. Guess I can never sell it now, since I sold my first handgun.

How are the metal trigger guards better than polymer? I've owned both. All it is is different materials. Functionally, both are the same and the trigger guard is not a stress bearing part of the rifle. Makes no difference in the function of the rifle.

Much of the trigger guard debate was squelched when aftermarket trigger groups were introduced to the market. Obviously there was a period of time where the old ones were phased out but the market wasn't flooded with aftermarket options yet, so these older rifles were pretty desirable. When they stopped making the metal trigger guards in 2007 to about 2009 you couldn't find a "cheap" aftermarket trigger guard. Now a days, not quite as much, but people do still like to buy them for their builds. Try to understand that when you are buying a "gun" solely for it's receiver and trigger guard, you kinda want to make it count. 95% of the gun will be thrown in a parts bin and never be looked at again. Now a days though, you can easily and affordably build a 10/22 without ever buying a "Ruger 10/22" to begin with (Rugerless 10/22), which means the market for these old guns is just not as strong anymore, especially if the gun wasn't a stainless model.

I'll try to explain. Most people who care about metal components are going to gut the gun and build it into something custom. People seeking the older models aren't looking for raw function, lol. Obviously they both "work", there are several subtle differences. For starters, most people complain that the finish on the new polymer trigger guards is a poor match to other components of a finished rifle, especially in stainless. It is always said that the "stainless" trigger guards are painted and it has been known to flake (This goes for the receiver paint too). There have also been number stories of tolerances being worn down prematurely (In respect to it's metal counterpart) disrupting trigger jobs. And I have even seen a few comparisons that suggest the polymer guard has lighter tolerances to start with and can create excess trigger movement in battery (muck).
http://rugerforum.net/ruger-10-22-rimfire/23301-metal-trigger-guard-vs-poly-trigger-guard.html

So in short, if you're just a casual shooter shooting a stock 10/22, you won't need or desire a metal trigger guard over a new polymer one. Quite honestly though, your opinion doesn't really matter to someone who is planning a complete build and plans to shoot competitively with it. It also greatly comes down to the buyer and what they want, some people just plain want what they want, who is going to tell them that it isn't worth it? They can pay what they want to. Keep in mind that in terms of selling this gun, you'd likely get a lot more from someone wanting the receiver and trigger guard from it, because keeping it in stock form leaves you with a rifle with a ton of mileage on it.

In my experience, the people with money to spend on a high dollar custom 10/22 strongly outweigh the guys who want a "good ol fashioned 10/22 from the 80's" or whatever it is that they're after.. and when demand is present, supply sets the price.
