Flint, $300 is a deal
Percussion are a hard sell in Pa. $200 or less depending on condition.
If its a "Kit", generally lower price unless assembled by a professional. Nothing wrong with a properly built Kit gun, just what the market dictates.
You will see them, as well as Hawken, FOR SALE for alot more $$$, you will not see them sell for that, they are not as valueable as people may think.

Lately, it seems they are worth more stripping the parts and selling on the big anti gun on-line auction. Every week, there must be 20 or so stripped and sold for parts.

my 2 cents, any older TC flint you can buy for $300 or there abouts, in good condition is money in the bank. it will be worth alot more come fall. i think the price will continue to climb on them as there late ML season become more popular. the day of $200 flints are long gone, unless you stubble onto someone who is hard up for cash.

good ole boy said:
True,but if they ever allow inlines in our sacred season then I betcha the value will drop.
i don't know. if you look at the gun for sale sites, gun broker, guns america, ect., they really just aren't out there for sale. alot of cap guns, but not the flints. i think they are still popular all over the U.S., especially for entry level folks looking to get started in the whole blackpowder thing. then later on they move up to a custom gun. just a thought.

Thats a bit high for a Renegade, you are correct. Its also the worst time of year to sell a flintlock. I would try to work a deal if the seller is reasonable. In guntrading, you need to learn to walk away if the deal is not good. There are a million Renegades out there, thats not the holy grail. Hope you get a good deal.

$450 is high but a 54 renegade flint actually for sale is not that common.

I would prefer a .50 as it's more common and would use that as a bargaining tool.

My top price for a real nice one in .54 would be $350. I would prefer a .50 but good luck finding that for sale in PA

I snuck an add onto Craigslist looking for another smoke pole. It was removed by the next day, BUT, I had a fella contact me during traditional flint (2nd season). He had 4 other ML's and didn't really use this one. Its a .54 Renegade, flint, not kit, almost brand new. Literally! He shot it 3 times to make sure it went off, and I doubt it was shot before that. Best I could date it was early 80's going by others serials.

$250 during flintlock season!
There's deals out there, just keep an eye out!

If you find one, and it has the old hammer style. Mail it to T/C, don't call or email, just send it with a note explaining problamatic symptoms.
They sent me a complete new lock for $0.00 with the updated hammer.

Ridge, they may have sent you a new lock, but the TC warranty gravy train is fast coming to a screeching halt.

I am seeing more and more complaints about TC's failure to even have parts, requiring proof that you are the original purchaser, etc.

A flintlock 54 Renegade sold today on Pennswoods for $225. The ad was 15 minutes old when I saw it, it was already gone. They are out there boys, keep your eyes open.

I've heard that. It seemed the turning point was when S&W picked them up. I figured it was worth a shot, and it was for me.

I'm glad I sent my lock in b/4 the sale to S&W.

I got back a new lock w/ a repair note saying that a new frizzn would not seat properly on my old style lock so the replaced the whole thing.

Every T/C item I look at in the stores is 10% - 20% higher since the added 'a Smith & Wesson company' to the labels...
