I have one passed down through family, it's a beautiful little rifle. Top of barrel reads: MODEL 24 REMINGTON ARMS COMPANY INC. SUCCESSOR TO REMINGTON ARMS.U.M.C.CO.INC...ILION WKS...BROWNING'S PATENT OCT.24,1916 Below rear sight; .22 SHORT-LESMOK OR SMOKELESS-GREASED, after and below that is stamped "A M <", could be an M or N or K, hard to read.
Underside of barrel has "501", I assume the serial #. I would appreciate any input and guidance on finding history, how to maintain and find the value of this rifle. Obviously I'm new to this, I'll be grateful for any helpful advise.
