    Hi guys, new here, first post, and new to T/C. I am looking at a contender in 22 Hornet. It has serial 151xxx, which must have been from 1979. My question is how do you determine which firing pin selector it has. I have not seen the gun in person as buying from internet. From pics, it has a square bar going thru hammer. Does it just push with finger? The older ones have a screwdriver slot on face of hammer. How does this model adjust? It has a 10" octagonal barrel and aftermarket fancy scrollwork grips and forearm to end of barrel. Also has a leupold pistol scope mounted. These any good and what might one be worth now? thanks trikerider
