I have just been asked to sell a lovely looking Norman May & Co tuned .22 Weihrauch HW35 Vixen however I have no feeling for the value for such things. It comes with original Norman test and inspection card with chrono data.

Thoughts of the value anyone?

A quick 'net search revealed that they are quite sought after and could be £400-£500 depending on condition and which stock is fitted.There's quite a lot of info about them and not many were produced.

Thank you, I will add a picture. I had a feeling it was around the GBP250-275 mark. Incidentally, the first person in the trade I spoke to advised me it was a GBP150 gun and would need a re-seal so GBP40.... Oh how I smiled.
