Default Need pricing on S&W Model 61-2 Escort and Browning High Power

My uncle has a couple of guns that he asked what he could sell them for. From my research, here is exactly what he has:

1970 Smith and Wesson Model 61-2 Escort 22LR in shiny nickel plated with white grips that is brand new and never shot. Does not have original box but does have the soft carrying case.

1968 Browning High Power 9mm with 2 magazines and no box. Comes with soft carrying case and has some very light holster wear. In great condition and maybe a few hundred rounds through it.

The high power could go between 900 to 1200 it's a t series and collectors love those. Said to be the best ones to have. Will have to get 10rd mags if you don't already have them.

Your uncle has great taste.

I'd give the escort a value of $450. Maybe more since it's unfired and has the neat original holster.

$1000 for the HP.

$600 for the Escort .22 mainly because of its pristine collector value.

Fewer people are killed with all rifles each year (323 in 2011) than with shotguns (356), hammers and clubs (496), and hands and feet (728).

Agree, the HiPower should sell at around a grand

Yes. Indeed.

I own a 1977 model. (RR in the serial number). Back then BHPs didn't have the respect they do today. I bought mine new from B&B Sales. But the hot pistol was 1911s in .45ACP. Jeff Cooper was king and a 9MM was weak. Haha.....

Glocks wouldn't arrive for another 10 years......the Wonder 9s were back.

The OPs "T" model was built from 1964 to 1975 and is a desirable handgun.

It's dark......just dug my old HP out of the safe......wife's a little pissed as I stand
In my underwear, flash lite in my mouth and cup of coffee in my left hand and
An old BHP in my right........women just don't get it.....

Bob

OP......give us a partial serial number on the HP. Would love to nail down the month and year. Thanks.

Since these guns were purchased back around 1968-1970, my uncle doesn't remember if he ever registered the firearms or not. What was the process back then?

If he decides to sell, what would need to be done for the transfer? Does he have to contact DOJ to fill out some forms before he could sell them or just go into a FFL and do a normal PPT?

Also both mags are standard capacity so I guess he would need to get them permanently blocked if he decides to sell.

Agree with both of these estimates.

Your uncle doesn't have to do anything. Just show up at the FFL with one form of ID. Usually a CDL or CID card.

Matter of fact YOU could sell these for your uncle. Being the Seller is fine.
I actually sold several guns (as the Seller) for my Uncle and some friends.

You should just list them for sale here on the Marketplace. Yourself.

That BHP is very tempting..........really a fine weapon.

Be well
Bob
