Hello, I have a model 12 .22 that I'm having trouble identifying. The serial number chart provided shows that it was produced in the middle of 1910. Does anyone know what model it would be and how to establish a value?
Round barrel or octagon barrel? Straight grip or pistol grip on the buttstock?
Many variations in the models and configurations.
Lots and lots of websites will tell you what you have. Here are just a very few:

The only way to establish a "value" is what it will bring when it's sold.
You can find some on the Internet firearms auction sites or you could take it to a competent/honest gunsmith/seller and ask them for an appraisal.
Just because someone says it's "worth" $$$, doesn't mean it will bring that amount until someone comes along and agrees to pay $$$ for it. Sometimes they're overpriced and sometimes they've underpriced.
