Default Remington 121 Fieldmaster what's it worth?

My FIL passed on a couple yrs back and the MIL is looking to sell off some of the guns which aren't "family" guns, among them is a Remington 121 Fieldmaster, the serial number on the left side of the receiver is 4119, which I assume would make it in the first year or 2 of production being mid 1930s I believe, however I don't have the barrel code which everything online tells me is how they dated the guns.

This particular rifle is in darn good shape, I don't know if it is a refinish or if it has just been well maintained, maybe not mint but very good I would call it.

I haven't shot it yet but assuming everything functions well does anyone have any idea what it would be worth? I am going to buy it and want to pay the MIL a fair price. I know I have seen some of the Winchester pump 22s in rather rough condition at gun shows with tags of over $600 but I know nothing about the Remingtons, I would assume 300ish maybe the ballpark what do you think? Wish I had some pics but I don't as of yet.

$250-$350 seems to be the ballpark on these. If the reciever has been tapped for scope base it moves down to the lower end. Highest I've every actually sold one for at a show was $475. That was at the height of the craziness last year. Everything I had sold out at that show! I've had two across my table since I started dealing. Not too common but a great little hunting rifle. Hope this helps.

There are so many varables not being able to see the rifle. However if you can get it for $300 and it is in good shape it is not a bad buy. And especially if it has not been refenished.

LGS had one here a few months ago. In very nice condition I would say about 90%. It had of course been completely checked out by their inhouse gunsmith. And they were asking $350 and told me for cash they would have gladly come down to $325.00 My son almost bought it but then a New Henry Frontier (octagon barrel) .22LR caught his eye.

next time I am up there I will take a look at it and get some pics that hopefully turn out decent. It doesn't have a scope however I don't know if it was tapped or not. Thanks for the replies, it kinda confirms what I was thinking.

I have 121 that belonged to my Dad. It's the gun I learned to shoot with. Many nice memories with Dad teaching. When beer bottles came with shiny metal seal under the cap, my Mom could hit them at 50 yards every time. Its probably the gun they would have to pry from my cold dead hands. Reliable, accurate, fast and handles like it is part of me. I wouldn't sell it for any amount.

It's your MIL, even if you pay over current market value that's not necessarily a bad thing.
300 ish, buy it and hang onto it.

They're neat rigs and not often seen.

My dad had one and I was a terror on squirrels with it. BTW, shot my largest groundhog ever with it too. Walnut and steel man.................the feeling of taking that afield in the fall is damn near priceless.

Yes, paying over value for anything is a bad thing no matter who it is. There are a number of guns I am considering buying and if I pay an extra 100 here and 50 there by not looking into what they are actually going for I will be out a couple grand that I don't have.

'Market value' is what a person is willing to spend on it. The numbers in the books arent gospel, just ballpark estimates. You dont see the numbers change up and down every few months, but (for example) a deer rifle will usually bring more thru the fall and winter, as opposed to early summer, because of demand. So the numbers float. Also, I may be willing to spend $500 on something that the book says $450, but another person would only spend $400. To each their own.
