    Go to an auction sight like Gunbroker and see what they are selling for! Then knock off 25-50% for a realistic price.

    I wish I had bought more of the H&R/NEF guns before Freedom group destroyed the company.  I have 3 of them, and they are all great shooters.  

    AAMOF, my longest shot on a game animal (210 yards on an Axis Doe) was with an NEF "Survivor" in .308.

    If I were you, I would keep it and shoot the snot out of it

    I agree with bullsi.....keep it, I sold one a few years ago that I wish I would have kept.

    Do you have a picture of it?
    Is it scoped?

    Here's one that was listed on Armslist for $250.

    You might only get half of what it's worth at a gunshop. On the other hand, if a private citizen really wants one then you'll get more.

    I have one of the NEF .223 single shots with heavy bull barrel and laminated stock. It's way more accurate than it should be. Also have one in .30-30 that I really like. Nice to be able to use spitzer and spitzer boattail bullets in a .30-30.
