There's lots and lots out there to spend your money on. But every once in a while a jolt of pure adrenaline hits when you grab onto a goodie or a hot electric wire. I hope this is my goodie...

It has a Palmer roll mark...do they all? It has been rode hard with some scratching and freckles. I paid $500 and would like some opinions if it is worth professional restoration?

That should be single action only right?  

Those are great guns nice score!occasion

The Palmer guns had the ram on the barrel shroud, usually these guns were used for silhouette shooting.  They are very accurate, like all Dan's really.  The ten inch barrel and single action trigger enhanced the accuracy a bit.  

The gun shouldn't need a professional restoration, since its a stainless gun as opposed to a blue gun,  a good going over with a tan Scotch Brite pad will remove surface scuffs and give you a nice brushed finish.  A follow up with some Flitz metal polish will shine it up more if you want.  
Follow the Average Joe tune up and you can go through the internals and make this gun run like brand new.  The great thing about .22's is that they were never subjected to 'hot loads' like other calibers can sometimes see.  Also, the frame is the same as the .357 magnum, so there is no way for a .22 LR to ever stress it.  

As to value when 'restored', that will depend on a number of factors like, do you have the original box, tools and paperwork, where in the country you try to sell it and even the time of year.  A WAG on final value would be $750-$900 depending on the above conditions.   Stainless is in your favor as they always seem to bring a bit more.

Now, take that baby to the range and punch some ragged holes in a regulation .22 target.  Try not to strain your facial muscles from the big grin you'll have from the accuracy.big-grin

Thanks Scorpio for your suggestions...I'll give that Scotch Brite pad a try. Do you know if anyone every does clean up work with crocus cloth? I have used it on lots of pocket knives.

Use the finest, least abrasive materials you can.  The tan Scotch Brite pads are a good place to start.  You could use crocus cloth but try it on a small area, maybe under the grips to see how it looks.  To get a brushed look, make your strokes in one direction only.

Nice.  I picked up a .22 "kit" not too long ago - it was a Norwich 722 VH8 and had a V10 Ram barrel assy just like yours in with it also.

Actually, the white Scotchbrite pad is the least invasive choice. They will not commonly be available at hardware stores, but should be available at a restaurant supply.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

My thanks for all the tips...I think there's a restaurant supply nearby. I might need to borrow a pin punch for the Average Joe tune-up but I think I can handle that too!

Steve is right, the white is the least abrasive, I use them to get stubborn stains off the gel coat on my boat so they are very mild and on stainless will polish a bit too.

IHMSA, I'm wondering why a VH on a 22?  Can't be recoil can it? I have a few VH 22's and find the long VH shrouds on the 22 to be muzzle heavy, more so than with the 357.    Did it help enhance accuracy?

Nope, nothing to enhance accuracy or reduce recoil. Some shooters just like the VH style shroud, as they were popular with other DW guns. I think the biggest reason is that they are designed to be shot from the creedmore position, where muzzle heaviness is not a problem. The squared shroud bottom will hold onto the leg position better than a round barrel or shroud would.

That makes sense.  I have a Palmer blued ten inch single action with the ram and a 722 SRS-1 both with the standard vent shrouds, that's why I asked
