My brother-in-law has 2 weapons, A Colt D.A. 45 Model 1917 SN: 153xxx & A Savage Arms Model 99E. Although he has no intentions to sell these items he would li ke to know their value. Any Info on value or where to find info about value would be greatly appreciated.

Bwallace,
Value of the Savage 99E depends on barrel length - is it rifle length 24" or carbine length 22" and somewhat on caliber. Please supply this info.

The Colt M1917 - value for military marked models vary from around $200 in poor condition to close to $4000 for a USMC marked in excellent, civilian models range up to 1500 bucks. You need to supply a bit more info on markings and condition of the piece to get a better valuation. (values are from the Blue Bood, 28th Ed.)

The Savage 99E fires 243 Winchester rounds, I think it has a 24" barrel, and is in fair condition.
The Colt is Army issue and is in good to very good codition

The following information is from the latest edition (28th/2007) of the "Blue Book of Gun Values" by Steve Fjestad:
Savage 99E - in .243 Win - is only listed as the Carbine configuration and then should have 22" Bbl.
100% - $385 90% - 270 80% - 250 60% - 175
If your piece has a 24" barrel and in chambered in .243, it is unusual; rifle config. pieces run about twice the value of the carbines.

Colt ""New Service Model of 1917" .45ACP, U.S. Army marked:
100% - $1375 90% - 700 80% - 610 60% - 455

Keep in mind that the "Blue Book" values are averages from across the country and are may vary from the value in your market area. Also, direct sales will generally realize slightly more, while sales to dealers will generally realize only 60 to 70% of "retail" value.

To get a real feel for what your guns are worth - check out a couple of the on-line auction sites:
gunbroker.com auctionarms.com etc.
