NEF R92 Info good or bad?

Anyone have any good or bad info on an New England firearms 9 shot .22 Gardner blued with wood handles. What would a like new one be worth?

They're inexpensive shooters. Solid guns, mediocre trigger, ok accuracy. Finishes in Parkerized, Blued, & Matte Satin. Haven't been made since '99. Value is between $150 to $225 depending on condition. Good knock-around gun but nothing special about 'em. Kinda funny looking compared to modern revolvers.

I scored a New England Firearms R92 for a C-Note a few years ago and it shoots well enough to kill snakes (CB caps or shorts work fine for that) or even pot the occasional squirrel out at 20 steps. It shoots better than a cheap little snubnose has any right to...the following was rested shooting at 25 yards.

“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals. It can only be ensured by instinct, sharpened by thought practicing the stroke so often that at the crisis it is as natural as a reflex.” ~ T. E. Lawrence
