    Question pricing info please

    Would any of you folks, by any chance, have any idea what a ball park figure for a new Browning 1886 lever action in 45-70 cal would be? Thanks.

    Fjestad's Blue Book of Gun Values (28th edition, copyright 2007) has these listings

    Model 1886 Limited Edition Grade 1 Rifle 26 inch octagon barrel: 100% - $1325; 98% - $1050; and 95% - $850

    Model 1886 Limited Edition Grade 1 Carbine 22 inch barrel: 100% - $900; 98% - $750; and 95% - $575

    "High-grade" versions of both were also made with $300 to $500 higher prices attaching to them. 3,000 units each, according to Fjestad's.

    According to their descriptions, the rifle was made only in 1986, the carbine between 1992 and 1993. Since only 7,000 units of each were made, an unsold New In Box might have some premium attached. Or have they resumed manufacture?

    Thanks Larry. I appreciate your response. As far as I know, you're correct in when they were last made. The one I'm looking at is new in box. You were helpful, take care.
