Stevens Model 83 Question

I was given a Stevens Model 83 as an inheritance from my Great Grandfather. I'm wanting to find out the value of this gun and have no luck so far. Can anyone help me out?

I am not familiar with a Stevens Model 83. What kind of gun is it? Action type, guage/caliber, etc.?

Stevens Model 83

This is a 22 Rifle. On the top it says Ranger 101.8. And it says Springfield.
It is made by J. Stevens Arms.

A single-shot bolt action like the Stevens 83 used to be a $100 gun in very good condition and then they went to $150-$200, but I don't know what the prices have done the over the past 4 or 5 years.

I haven't shot one in, oh, 40-odd years, but they were reliable shooters back then.
