I have a carbine made in 1961 peep site model. You should expect to pay from 350$ (good price) to 500$ for them, depending on the condition. I wouldn't take 5,000$ for mine. It's (in MY opinion) the deadliest short range deer gun in existence. Mine is topped with an equally old (El Paso) Weaver K2.5 mounted low.

It's a great carbine. See if you can get an older one with the tube magazine rather than a newer rotary magazine model. You will love it.

The 1s that look like a 10/22 and don't have a heatshield or detachable mag IS the older style.
