To get an accurate estimate pictures showing condition, if it's in excellent shape it could bring in the range of $1,800.

That’s a looker my friend. I think you could pull $1800 out of it, it would seem when it comes to selling gun it’s all about timing. I’d have a hard time parting with it if it were mine.

Ya Mark, I think your right I might have to keep it. I only paid 750$ from the original owner! Thanks for the info!

$750 was a steal.
The "bad" news if there is any, is that this configuration and caliber was the most common one for early non-prefix No. 1s, so most No. 1 loonies like myself already have one and won't place a premium on it. Also, wood figure always adds $$$ on these, so the plain wood on yours doesn't help either.

Here's how I'd price it, given current trends:

Rifle - ~$1000

vertically split rings - ~$250

Redfield scope - ~$175

Sling - $0

So, in total around $1400. Maybe.
Most guys just aren't willing to offer much for something like this these days. You might do better selling the rifle and rings separate from the scope,

Ya, I had it on armslist for a day or two for 1,500$ but after taking it to the range today I took the ad off! It shoots so nice! My first three shots at 100 yards were all in the same hole! So I'm putting my cz 550 on armslist instead! Thanks for the info!
