Renegade Flintlock Value

My flintlock hunting days are coming to an end and I am considering selling my TC Renegade .50 cal flintlock that is in very good condition. Just curious as to what it is worth, any inputs would be appreciated.

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

if you go to gunbrokers.com you can find what others are asking and that should give a good idea what to ask. most of the asking prices on there a generally a bit high.

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

I was hoping to get a more realistic value from PA flintlock owners.

i'll jump in on this one. although I don't have any production guns, i'am always on the look out for them, and especially tc's to have around for sale for people looking and maybe make a couple buck's. never happens, just don't seem to be able to pick them up cheap enough. I am going to say if it is nice, not perfect, but still in good shape, it is worth $400.00 and up. this isn't the best time of year to sell one, be it is still worth a good amount. good luck with your sale.

also, GB prices really are not that far off.

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

Condition is very important especially when corrosive BP is involved.One persons idea of a clean pristine rifle could be trashed to another.The outside could be as clean as a whistle and the inside could look like a sewer pipe.

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

The bore is perfect, I use a drop in bore light to inspect it. The stock is awesome with a really unique grain pattern.

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

10-15 years ago I bought mine for $225 and it was pretty clean(a 50cal Hawken).

Now..prices have increased dramatically in recent years..


I'd agree...the $400 range is possible...depends on the gun and condition and if someone really wants one...also..old style lock vs the newer updated hammer, extras (fiber optics, ramrod etc) some guys like the newer barrels..some elds etc..

Kit guns don't usually bring the money the factory guns do...

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

I follow TC muzzleloaders pretty close at auctions and local classifieds, especially Renegades. Prices vary from $200-$400. Time of year has a lot to do with it (now is the worst). Kit guns always bring less no matter how nice they are. Almost all have some corrosion around the breech and within about five inches from the muzzle in the bore. Sometimes there are hairline cracks from overtightening the lock. All these things affect the value but probably the season most of all. You can just about sell anything that looks like a flintlock the Monday after buck season. Unless you really need the money, keep it into December.

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

I agree with " rugered". Prices vary between $200-400 depending on condition and time of year.
I paid $250 for a nice used one a couple of years ago. I also have a T/C custom shop model that I wouldn't sell for $400.
There is a nice older T/C Hawken for sale on the board right now that the seller is asking $400.
Hawkens in equal condition will usually sell higher than Renegades.
I don't know how the market for either rifle has been since Smith &Wesson apparently no longer honors the T/C lifetime warranty.

Re: Renegade Flintlock Value

I paid $250 for a tc pa hunter carbine about 8 years ago. I then traded that gun for a tc renegade three years ago. I see a lot for sale around $350.
