ITHACA M-49 .22 S, L, LR YOUTH OR SADDLE SINGLE SHOT LEVER ACTION RIFLE This rifle is in pretty good shape. It shoots straight and is a kick to shoot. It's nice to have a rifle that will accept CB caps or .22 shorts (as well as long rifle). It would be ideal for someone who has kids, or if you want a small plinker that won't weigh you down in the mountains (even the ammo is light weight). These rifles DO have some collector's value. This one has an engraved stock and I believe the trigger used to be plated, but the plating wore off (now it looks silver). If you are a collector, or just want something fun and different... This is a good cheap option. This is a link to a price comparison (gunbroker.com). It's starting bid was at $150, and the final sale price was $170. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=136277996 This is another price comparison (gunsamerica.com). It's starting price is $195. http://www.gunsamerica.com/973958361/Guns/Rifles/Ithaca-Rifles/ITHACA_MODEL_49_22LR.htm Oh, yeah, MINE looks better than these two examples.
