Hi guys , just joined and need assistance. I have several guns, all low end small caliber and have been shooting for years.

I need help with the value of the above mentioned guns. I have a boat I am advertising right now for $1500.00

A fellow wants to trade for his 2 guns (see pics). I'm guessing they are worth a grand. Just wondering if I should also ask for additional cash or not.

Also, what do I need to be thinking about when buying guns from an individual?

Thanks for all the help . Matt

You might also go to the popular auction sites to see what they have gone for (you can search completed auctions).

The values have been listed.

Me, I would ask for the serial numbers and take them to a pawn or gun shop, pay the $10 and see if they aare on the hot sheet. There are also a coule of web sites that list stolen guns. Can't remember the urls right now. Since I only deal with people that are recommended or vouched for by people I trust; there is nothing more that I can add.

That Ruger is a redhawk not a Super Redhawk, if I am looking at the picture correctly. Big difference in value.

Watch the 223 if its the newer model it has a good value but the older ones are not as pricy.

What is the scope on that Ruger? That might add value if its a good brand.

Your 1K value can't be too far off if the scope is a decent one. Without the scope I would guess $750 depending on the condition of the guns. They sure look nice. You need to get some cash with that deal unless the scope is a Leupold or one of those fancy German high dollar jobies!

+1 to what Dogsoldier said about verifying the firearms are not stolen. It's easy to get caught up in that without meaning to. Some local PDs will run the numbers through NCIC for you, others won't. Can't hurt to ask.

I would definitely look on Gunbroker or GunsAmerica. I think you'll find your answer there as to their value. Again, a lot depends on that scope.

Welcome to NGF. If you like guns, you found the right place.

The following assumes that the firearms are legally owned by the person offering them for trade.

On a good day the revolver has a resale value of approximately $300.00.
The carbine is an old model wearing a cheap scope. It also has an approximate resale value of $300.00.

Plain enough?
