OK, a friend has inherited a relative's guns. He's not into them and is looking to sell them. I don't want him to get ripped off, so I said I'd try to get a rough idea of their value. I have not seen them and he has provided little information other than make and model, so for purposes of this exercize assume average condition and standard or typical configuration.

Here goes:

1. Colt Revolver Officer Model .22 Long Rifle Target model
2. P. 38 - WWII bringback
3. Colt Revolver 38 Cal stainless (Police Positive?)
4. Luger - WWII Bringback, 4" bbl

Not much info, I know but a ball park range for each would be a good starting point

Look at the completed auctions on Gunbroker.com for a good idea of where to start.

Tell him to sell him to me for $100. I don't mind ripping him off!

Yeah the Luger is the wildcard. I really need to see it. My friend doesn't understand the importance of details in gun values.

Thanks guys. I'll check gunbroker closed auctions

You may really want to seek a Luger value on a dedicated Luger forum, variations are numerous.

Does "friend" have the original paperwork for the 'bringbacks'.??

No paper. The deceased relative was the guy who brought them back.

I don't know if the death generated any paperwork or if the family just quietly cleaned out the safe. Given the guy's age and guns involved (there are some long guns too), I suspect all the firearms were acquired pre-1968.
