Question: mauser model 98 recondition by noble manufacturing haydenville con.

Answer: It all depends on the quality of the sporterization and condition. Whatever "haydenville.com" rifles are selling for, you can sell it for that. But rechambering and sporterizing such a gun completely destroys any collector value it once had. And it won't shoot like a gun with a new barrel on it, and although Mausers are tanks (and in my opinion, will still work better in 50 years than any new gun you can buy), they don't really sell for a whole lot. This is something you'd have to have appraised. An original Mauser? We could help you. But everybody back in the day was chopping up old military guns because there were so many, and the quality just varies so much. I bought an old sporterized Mauser for less than $100, for example. Some sell for thousands.

Question: The only way to know the answer to this is to have noticed the name of the town on the sign at the railroad depot. Not once is it mentioned by name in the movie

Answer: The town's name is: HAYDENVILLE. Your right, it was never mentioned in the movie and seen only once in a brief scene showing the RR depot. I thought I was the only one that know it, LOL

Answer: NOBLE MFG. CO. Previous manufacturer and importer of Spanish SxS shotguns located in Haydenville, MA 1953-1971. Noble manufactured semi-auto, lever, and slide action rifles and slide action shotguns, in addition to importing Spanish SxS shotguns.

Question: I inherited a .22 rifle a few days ago and I'd like to know some info on it. It's a bolt action single shot. Engraved on the barrel is Noble Model 20D or 200 (It's hard to tell). I'm sure it's pretty old, but it works like brand new. I can't find any info on it with Google, so any info you guys know, please tell me! (worth in USD, year it was made, etc.) Thank you very much!

Answer: Noble went out of business in 1971 and were located in Haydenville, Massachusetts. Some of their stocks were purchased by S&W - I read somewhere it was mostly shotgun parts, though. Unfortunately, Noble went out of business for a reason - they made cheap (in price) no thrill utilitarian firearms. I don't think you are going to get more than $100 for the rifle because while not a bad gunmaker there really was nothing outstanding about their guns. Caveat: repairing a Noble is going to cost you more than the worth of the gun since there is no spare parts maker for them. You might want to store it in a safe place and see what the market is like in the future. You never know when some wealthy tycoon wanting to relive his childhood might paid more for it ;-)

Question: I recently purchased this pump action 12 gauge made by Noble Manufacturing in Haydenville Mass. I would like to know if anyone knows a website that has a lot of info on this gun.There doesn't seem to be much about it on my searches Thanks. Yes, it has no serial number or any sign of ever having one. Was the pump action 12 gauge imported or american made?

Answer: I'm happy to give you as much info as I can, but there is not too much to give. Noble Manufacturing Company, located in Haydenville, Massachusetts, was in the business of manufacturing a line of utility grade .22 caliber rifles and importing Spanish side by side shotguns. They were in business from 1953 to 1971. Your gun, if there is no clearly visible serial number, was manufactured prior to 1968. Noble made mostly low cost guns for the mass market which sold reasonably well until they began to have quality control problems in the manufacturing process resulting in them going out of business in 1971. The guns were utilitarian and not especially unique or attractive in terms of design. As a result, there is virtually no interest in collecting these guns and values reflect that lack of collecting interest. Most of the rifles out there seem to be in the $50 to $150 range depending on what they are and the condition they are in. You probably won't find much in print about this company since there is no collectible market. I did several Google searches on a variety of terms relating to Noble Manufacturing and got very little info. Not sure how much more I can tell you. Sounds like it might be a decent gun to shoot and have fun with, but probably not much more. Hope this helps you out a bit...
