Hi guys
I hope this is the right section.
I have a old single action 22LR pistol that I am thinking of getting rid of. What do you think would be a fair price to ask for it?
I do not know much about it. It says F.I.E Miami FLA on the barrel and it is model E-15.
Thanks for your help.
-John

F.I.E. is the brand. I would say about $100.

So $100 is what everyone thinks is fair.

I was going to say $50 but, I doubt I'd pay that much + DROS. I've got a couple low end .22s that I haven't tried to sell because, by the time you add DROS fees they just aren't really worth it. Good luck with your sale though.

Just saying if you put it up for sale here for $75-$100, it will be sold within an hour or less.

I'd say put it up for sale at $100 - $110 and see what happens. Here in CA, there's a distinct lack of inexpensive new and used DA .22LR revolvers (mainly due to the models limited by the safety roster) floating about your local gun stores, so .22LR SA revolvers make an attractive alternative if you just want a .22 revolver for plinking.

I just bought a new Heritage SA with 2 cylinders - 1 for 22 & 1 for 22 mag, for $209, with fancy grips. They can be had for less if they aren't the "convertible" or have the fancy grips, about $159. So if you can get $100, take it.

100 would be fair considering the odd finish.

I have one -- FIE that is -- Buffalo scout series - E-15 - made in Brescia Italy -- 22 lr or 22 mag, blue standard finish, or chrome -- 4 3/4" barrel
Sold new for about $90 -- FIE went belly up in 1990
Add a bit for walnut grips, ivory plastic was standard, add a bit more for the combo with both cylinders, add a smidge for chrome -- Add a good bit more for the Yellow Rose model with 24k gold plate --
Frame and most parts are not steel - fit is rather poor, finish is pretty good and function has been satisfactory --no problems --
It is no where as good as the colt scout - not that great either - or the similar Ruger - forget the name -
I paid $40 for mine enough years ago that it was C&C --
I agree with those that said about $50-75 -- Considering the transfer fees and all, I would put the money toward a better weapon -- My ha-penny

Considering the current times. The ammo may be worth as much as the gun. I'd say the $100.00 range would be accurate.

I'd say $100 would be wildly optimistic.
