When trying to place a value on used guns it's very difficult to do without seeing the gun, pictures, or a ver, very detailed description.

There is a rating system (A few actually) that run from 100% condition, being basically new to 0% - very worn.

I'd recommend that you go to any major bookstore and get a copy of the "Blue Book of Gun Values". It will run you around $45.00 - 55.00. It has color photograph examples of guns in the various conditions, explains and allows for particularly valuable guns with certain features or in certain serial number ranges, etc.

At risk of incurring the wrath of licensed dealers here, please don't rely on them for pricing. They aren't bad people, they are just like anyone else. Buy low, sell high. They have to eat too.

I know you have allot of guns you want a value for but without more info about each gun (factory box, papers, tools, original grips, barrel length, more detailed physical description of wear on each gun, etc.) It's going hard to even to come close to a "ballpark" figure for each.

I know it will take allot of work but if you're serious about selling them, you're going have to answer most if not all of these questions from a possible buyer.

Good Luck.

Plus Location please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Area of the country also plays a part in determining values.
