    The specs are as follows;

    Model: H004BSA

    Action - Lever
    Caliber - 22 Long Rifle
    Barrel Length - 20"
    Capacity - 16 + 1
    Trigger - Single Stage
    Safety - Hammer

    Weight - 6.7 lbs
    Stock - Walnut
    Finish - Blue Steel Barrel/Brass receiver
    ----------------------------------

    The estate is asking $750~.

    Cash offer made and accepted. Sale Pending.


    ----------------------------------

    As an alternative to cash, I've been allowed to consider as partial trade a Marlin Model 39a, dating from 1953 or earlier, with Ballard rifling in excellent original condition.

    Good morning;
    It is a Springfield Model 120A; made by Savage Arms. The barrel stamp reads; "Springfield - Model 120A ", "Savage Arms, Westfield Mass. USA" ".22 Short, Long, or Long Rifle".
    It dates ca. late 1950's - mid 1960's, from what I can gather. There is a number "58" stamped on the barrel, slightly in front of the scope. The serial number is located on the barrel, directly above the bolt and is P366XXX.
    Attached please find a copy of a tear sheet that was with the gun. It describes the gun in detail. Also attached are photos of the actual rifle. It is equipped with a Bushnell 3-7 "Custom .22" scope, which is attached to the dovetail by the use of a full length rail mount. The scope appears to be newer than the rifle. The rear sight was removed, apparently to allow the scope to be mounted unobstructed, and the factory sight screw reinserted in the screw hole. We were unable to locate the rear sight. However, Numrich Gun Parts Corp. has original NOS rear sights in stock (103470A) for $6.45.
    The bluing shows some slight wear, mainly toward the muzzle, and there are scattered light handling marks along the length of the barrel. The bolt also displays some loss of bluing.
    The wood is free of notable defects, and appears to be birch, or a similar inexpensive hardwood, as opposed to walnut. The bore appears to be issue free. No bulges or pits are evident. Rifling appears to be crisp. I've not run a brush through it, but assume that it is issue free, with the exception of some leading. The buttplate is intact with no cracks, chips or other damage evident.
    The gun belonged to my father in law and was wrapped up in an oiled shirt, which was inside an old vinyl gun carry case. We found found it in a closet in his shop when we were cleaning out his place after he passed away. He was a lifetime member of the Boy Scouts of America, and spent part of his summers teaching marksmanship at a summer camp for scouts. I'm guessing that the gun was acquired in conjunction with this activity, but apparently saw little use. This is all that I know about the gun. Hopefully, this is of some help.
    Thanks for your interest.
    Bruce

    Apologies if the original reply to a value got mis-routed. It didn't show up here as I assumed that it would.

    I contacted the executor of the estate with regards to an asking price and they responded with the following.
    Based on the condition of both the rifle and the scope, they feel that $175~ plus the cost of shipping to your FFL would be fair for both the estate and the buyer. If that's more than you're comfortable with, I can always submit an offer.
    Thanks once again,
    Bruce Silva
