I bought a Remington No. 4 rolling block in .22 caliber in the late '60's with a 22-1/2" octagon barrel. Serial number is 171763. It breaks down by rotating a lever on the right side of the case hardened receiver. This permits the barrel to be removed with the fore grip. It is fitted with a fixed range open sight. This pattern was popular with boys and poachers in the early 20th century. I would like to know what price range a rifle like this could fetch in good to very good condition.

It sounds like a #4 Remington and there are to many variables to give a good price estimate. You can find decent shootable examples for $200.00-$400.00, but an excellent collectible, who knows? Here is a pretty good rifle that I bought last year for $200.00. It's the top one in the picture.

Wundudnee, not only is that a nice-looking No.4, but appears to be a real nice No.6 below. The 2nd gun I ever owned was a "Model 6 Improved" I bought for $20 back in 1968 (the "improved" model was a redesign using a much slimmer profile to the receiver). The Gun Trader's Guide that year listed a value of $5 for that rifle. I felt a bit better about my purchase when the price guides started quoting values over $50 for that little single shot. At whatever price, it's always been fun to shoot.

Not trying to hijack redpost's thread, but here is a better picture of the #6. It shows the case colors and the little flip up sheetmetal peep sight. The rifle on top is an 027 Hamilton, probably the cheapest made boy's rifle ever produced. Everything on the Hamilton is stamped sheetmetal, including the receiver and brass lined sheetmetal wrapped barrel.
