I have a Ranger R-M34 .22 cal. rifle. What's it worth?
It is in very good condition. A few dings in the stock and the bluing looks new.
RANGER ARMS INC.
Previous manufacturer located in Gainesville, TX until the early 1970s.
Ranger Arms Inc. manufactured good quality, bolt action rifles in various calibers and configurations. Although somewhat rare in that there were not a large number manufactured, collectibility to date has been limited with specimens in 90%+ condition, typically priced in the $375-$500 range.
This is all Blue Book has on the firearm. Very good condition is usually 90% +, so you can go buy the numbers above.
Good Luck & Happy Shooting !
*** Update ****
I found some more info.
Ranger is a tradename or house brand used by Sears, Roebuck & Company starting about 1925. It was used on firearms that were marketed by Sears but were manufactured by various firearms companies. References are not completely clear on this model, but they indicate that the Ranger Model 34 was manufactured by Marlin and that it was either their Model 50 or their Model 80 (it would have been helpful if you had told me your action type).
The Model 50 was Marlin's first autoloader, it was manufactured from 1931 to 1935 and had a six round detachable box magazine. Total production was about 5000. Blue book values for Marlin Model 50 rifles is $100 to $350 depending on condition.
Marlin manufactured the Model 80 from 1935 to 1939, total production is not known. The Model 80 was a bolt action rifle with a detachable eight round box round magazine. Blue book values for Marlin Model 50 rifles is $95 to $300 depending on condition.
Values for firearms sold under a trade name like your Ranger are usually 10 to 40 percent lower than their counterparts that sold under the original manufacturers name.
This info is from an older book ( 3 years ) so the values of the new Blue Book would be correct.
call a gun store they will tell you.
r u serious .22 cal that is worth nothin unless it is an antique but besides that it is worth no more then 2-3 hundred if u find a GOOD COSTUMER but besides that i would keep it and use it for small game
