    Older 10-22 rusty...

    A friend gave me an old, rusty,10-22 today. No mag. Rust at muzzle end of barrel. Quick check, and I couldn't see down the bore. Not certain it's blocked but could be. Told him I'd give him a fair price for it.

    I'm at work now, so can't give more detail...but I'm thinking $50 might be too much.

    More details later... But what are your thoughts based on the limited info so far?

    Well, as long as the receiver is in good shape, I'd give him 50 bucks for it, you did after all, say he is a friend.

    Then I'd use it for a project gun, for an couple hundred extra bucks, you could make it into something nice.

    You can buy absolutely everything aftermarket for that rifle these days.

    DITTO buckeye .45 I'd pay $50 for it if the receiver was perfect. You could do a super nice 10/22 Custom Build with just a good receiver.
    Heck...buy a Match Grade barrel for it and scrap the rusty original one.
    But...I sure would take a really close and careful look at that receiver.

    $50 is fair from a friend. you can have some fun and build a training rifle with it. Careful with what is in the barrel. If from somebody you did not know I would walk.

    I'd run a cleaning rod down the barrel first. If it goes thru go ahead and get it, if the barrel is obstructed, I'd pass it up.

    I wish I could find a rusty 10/22 for $50. Been looking for a project 10/22 for a little while now.

    At that price it is worth a chance. Worst case you wouldn't have a problem breaking even.

    If the barrel is rusted to heck but the receiver is in great shape I will do you a favor,I have a stainless barrel and walnut stock from a 10/22 I upgraded with a match bull barrel and stock.For just the barrel if you send me $40.00 + shipping I will send you a barrel that will let you have a 10/22 for about $100

    Personally, I'd buy it for $30. I'm needing an action and trigger group for another build. Don't need the barrel or the stock. In your case, forget about it if you're thinking of a complete plinker. I agree with save your money.

    Sounds like you have enough people looking to buy if you don't. I would just need the bolt and receiver myself.

    Thanks for the inputs, guys... I'll try to post pics later... I may keep it as a project gun... the bore is not blocked. But I need to clean it and see how bad it's pitted (the bore) if at all... the outside near the front sight and muzzle end of the barrel are rusted.

    It's the most common "carbine" model... and I've been so busy that that's all the further info I have right now...
