Used gun values

I have a few guns I am going to be selling. Does someone have a link to a good site, where I can get used gun values so I have a ruff idea what to ask? I don't want to pay for a subscription to a site to find out.

Try , Gun Broker.com , I think this site might help you out. Also talk to your local gun shop , they might be able to point you to someone.

You can buy a blue book of gun values book. IMO most typical guns that have been shot and show minor wear fall into the 95-90% category. Some may be better and some may be worse, just don't expect to get 100% value. As others have suggested gunbroker etc... will give you some idea if you look to see what things are selling for.

Go to the advanced search and look at the prices of guns that have already sold not the guns currently listed. Many sellers put unrealistic prices on guns but they never sell. The ones that sold are a good indicator of the real value.

When checking Gunbroker,Gunauctions, or Gunsamerica type in the gun you have in the search.When checking price go with what they are bidding on NOT the prices that are high and nobody is bidding on.
I found that ALL your gun price books are giving prices of about 2yrs ago.They must gather the info and till it goes to print and in your hands its 2yrs.Books are good for decriptions,standards,and year of manufacture but you can't buy them for what they give as value or sell.That is set by 2 people who want the same gun and how often it will show up again.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

The best thing to do is call a LGS and ask them what they would sell them for. This is a good starting point. Then, as stated, research what your guns sell for on the web sights. Not what they are asking for them but what they "SELL" for. This will get you into the ball park. Typically you can expect to get close to what the difference is between the two. I hope this helps. Just remember, you have to be honest with yourself and realize a realistic price.

Some LGS may be hesitant to quote you anything like this. I used to work in one. #1 it's hard to give a value for something sight unseen. #2 If they give a price over the phone, they'll be expecting an angry customer to show up wondering why he isn't being offered the price that he was given over the phone.

If I had a lgs that wouldn't help me out, I sure wouldn't be quick to buy from them. The guys in my area that I deal with have no problem helping a person set a price. As I said be honest about the condition ,as in educate yourself on how to judge condition, and a good shop will help you figure a price. Yes, they may want you to bring them in, or send pictures, but they should help.
