You can date it by going to the Browning/Winchester website and searching for your serial number. Once you know the year of production, you can search for similar Browning .22s on GunBroker and that will help you with the pricing. Or the Blue Book of Gun Values, but I think you'll have to pay for that.

I have the same rifle you're talking about and mine was produced in 1952, so your info is a little bit off.

Yeah, it's a real fun little gun. My Dad handed mine down to me. Mine is a ten-shot tube.
