Body (and most other parts) is probably 97, but the back block looks more like 92 to my untrained eye. Those weird cocking rod covers didn't last long.

From the serial, it appears to be a 96. The frame looks to be a pre-98 spec frame, seeing as there's no rear slop screw. Palmers Rock LPR is obvious, 3-way is hard to tell from this angle, ram is early gen STO. CP barrel with what appears to be a Dynasty tip.

I thought those backblocks were only from Bob Long cockers.

I was going to say the same thing. And the fact that it has the cage is nice, those are like hens teeth.

Yeah, that is the back block style that came on the Bob Long Series 2000 autocockers, many of which are now missing their match anodized cages. I do not know for sure, but I would not be surprised if plain black ones like this were sold separately. I know most other Bob Long pieces (barrels, bolts) were marketed like that in the mail order catalogs of the time.

I plan on selling it along with a bunch of extra gear. Any idea of what it's worth?

This is definitely a Frankencocker. Condition appears to be fair for its age and it is missing some parts like you mentioned. If you could get it working and test it for any other issues it may have, you could probably get a bit more for it. But as it sits, I'd call this a project piece. Still, it shows promise.
