Just saw one of these, the standard grade in 22 lr, priced at $299 at the local shop. My first though was are these guys on crack, my second was I had better polish mine up. I have seen a couple of these floating around gunshow tables for about the last 10 years priced at $125 and they can't even get that out of them. Saw one on the auction side starting at $189 and another bid up to $135. So what are these worth? I have a couple copies from Agawam Arms that I think are better made and I don't think they are worth more than $50.

You'll see this all over at fluctuating prices. Here in Upstate NY close to Ithaca they are collectible and worth $200 . The blue book has the standard 49 at $145 at 100%. The 49R is $265 at 100% .

That was my first .22 as it was for most kids my age. I felt like "The Rifleman" even though it was just a single shot. The painted receiver tends to peel but they're still a neat little gun. I see them around here in Upstate NY for around $125-$150.

I have owned mine for 42-years now, and it is worth at least a MILLION dollars today (at least to me). It was my first gunpowder burning rifle. I routinely see them priced from $100 - $200.

The main advantage that I found with the Agawam Arms model was a blued steel receiver. The Ithaca must be either a cast and/or alloy receiver. I used both models to eradicate 1000's of gophers in my younger days. Both are great guns. My Ithaca was inherited from the side of a snowmobile trail and had little finish when I found it. I repainted it but it got heavy use and is due to be refinished.

M49's in excellent condition usually bring close to $150 in my neighborhood. Stay clear of M49R's though. They don't have the simple falling block action of the regular 49 and Ithaca had so many problems with the 49R that they were discontinued after a very short time in thye early 1970's. I had one and never did get it to work right even after two trips to the factory. Later Ithaca went to a M72 lever action made by Erma in Germany. It is an excellent gun and is the same as today's Henry lever actions.
