    Default Little help and opinion wanted

    Friend of mine from out of state received these from a relatives estate. He doesn't want them. Told him I would try and sell these locally. Checked the regular websites and prices are all over the place on the model 43 and the 24.

    Winchester Model 43, 218 BEE, not sure what make the scope is.....? Very small mark in stock. SN5179XX

    Remington Model 24 22LR.........very little rust/pitting under receiver. SN109XXX

    Winchester Model 67 22 S/LR.......very nice condition

    There is also a Oviedo 1916? Spanish Mauser, 7X57 I believe. It's in need of TLC, I didn't take a pics of it. Main concern is fair market value for the first 3 rifles.

    Any local expert advice? I would like to list them in the next day or two. I would like to avoid the "make an offer" sale. These are in Palmer. Appreciate any help.

    Default go get the book....... BLUE BOOK of GUN VALUES

    they should have it at Sportsmans' Wearhouse. and it will have a rating, or grading system in there and will explain how to use it. Once you have "graded" each gun, you simply look up its value under its manufactures name.

    you can also run searches on the on-line auction houses like gunbroker, auction arms etc. to get an idea what they are going for, but I think those on these sites generaly run a bit high as far as pricing goes.

    Thanks. Guess I was just shooting for a estimate from someone familiar with these older Remingtons and Winchesters. I will probably take them to 2 or 3 gun shops or dealers for opinions and book value if I can't figure it out on my own.

    I spent a few hours searching the auctions earlier, not enough of these models for sale and the prices were scattered, so that didn't help.

    I don't have much experience with older firearms. The new owner is not a gun owner, that is how I ended up in the middle...........so much for volunteering.

    Your best way to sell these is to take a bunch of really nice photos and list them on Gunbrokers for the longest auction you can, which I think is 14 days.
    Word will spread quickly and people will bid on them although don't expect the high bids to appear till the last hour.
    You may be surprised at how high they sell for. However, be prepared not to get the "book value" as used gun prices have nose dived as of late.
