...came across this little Remington Model 24 and am curious what she's worth. My local gunsmith says he doesn't think she has ever been fired and has the original bluing on her as well as the original wood stock and forearm. I know they stopped making this model in 1930 and looking up the two letter barrel code best I can determine is that she was born in February 1928.
Any ideas??

Wow, I love it! That tiger stock looks too good to be original though.

...what I thought as well, but my gunsmith after looking at her said it was original as she had never been taken apart. Waiting to hear back from Remington.

looks to be refurbished, not original wood

Not sure any were made with a gold trigger. That's definitely worth checking into.

These were often sold as "Gallery" guns for use in shooting galleries in carnivals and such. Although they're based on a Browning patent, they are not near as attractive to collectors as their Browning counterparts.

Looks like a Browning design.

Regardless of "collector" value, it's a pretty, useful and pleasant rifle to own. There's entirely to much practicality in this world, and the quality is entirely overrated, at least in my view. Keep it, shoot it every few months when the weather is nice and enjoy it for the next twenty or thirty years. Then give it to one of your kids or grandchildren.

I have one myself that was owned by my grandfather. I too had it restored and added a Browning hard carry case. You might have to find the case on eBay or some other source because I'm not sure Browning still offers it. Yours is definitely worthy of a nice case.

Great find!

There's lots I have not seen and one of them is a run of the mill Remington .22 with a million dollar stock, unused, from the pre-war era that hasn't been modified to pull a big price.

It looks very nice and anyone would love to have it. I doubt it's worth as much as it looks. I would take the advice above and shoot whenever the urge surfaces.

Then again, you know what they say about births and average days.

What I haven't seen is is a predepression high grade gun with a fiddleback pattern. I don't think that fiddleback was considered high grade at the time. I have seen some plain graded guns with some fiddleback in the wood but none of that quality.

I talked to someone that knows collectible Remingtons pretty well. He said that there are two scenarios, Remington stockmakers at the time decided if a piece of wood was high grade, either it didn't make grade in general, or the was a flaw that when cut out, left the blank too short for anything but a 22. He said that you would occasionally see a pretty good piece of wood on a standard grade of gun.
