I have an identical Remington and it is a joy to shoot. I taught my son to shoot with it and it belonged to his grandfather. Unfortunately, he passed long before my son was born. This rifle, and the memories we make with it, will give them a way to be connected.
In reality, neither gun is worth much since more accurate, modern and versatile .22s are plentiful. $150 each would be more than fair.
To a much greater extent than most mechanical devices, firearms are terribly unforgiving of any overconfidence, complacency or negligence.
