    Can you help me ID a gun I recently inherited into my collection? I am usually pretty good at internet research but cannot find this one. It is a bolt action box magazine (5 round, I think) rifle in .270 caliber. it is 45" overall and 23" barrel. The stock is two tone wood inlay with a sort of trapeziod flat bottom. The barrel markings are "HEYM-BUSHNELL MOD. SR 10 KAL.270 win krupp special LAUFSTAHL made in W Germany" and has serial number/model number "6659" and "368" stamped near breach. There is also a pretty detailed scene of what looks like a red stag on the bottom of the magazine cover. I have many pics available. I would estimate "very good" or 85% value. Has a few cosmetic scratches on butt stock but clean barrel and otherwise flawless. No rust or blueing damage. I have many pictures I can provide if that would help . Thank you, Mike

    F.W. HYM AG was first esablished his gun works 1865 and located near Gleichamberg, germany since 1995 and Sterling VA. imported by Heckler & Koch and JagerSport They are best known world wide for their combination guns, over and under or SxS in .375, .458 Win, .470 &.550 nitro express. They are also known for their top end drillings and bolt action rifles originally built off mauser war surplus rifles available in 18 calibers the SP-10 sporter and SR20N classic. The SP10 is worth $1,325 in 100% -$850 in 90% which is inexpensive compared to the before mentioned combo and drillings that can run as high as $25,000. They also have a line of Express rifles worth up to $22,000

    Your rifles worth can be found in the annual blue book of gun values for 2012 as I mentioned last years. They have safari rifles worth up to $50,000 and veirlings-4 barrel configuration rifles worth up to $37,000. Since your basic moel the SP10 is worth between 1350-850 you should hold on to that rifle and take care of it.
