Savage 204 ruger
 
Hello all, i'm new here, and I have a question. I am new to hunting but for $500 I was offered a savage model 12 204 ruger with a heavy barrel and accutrigger.short action. a 6-24x50 scope and a bipod. Is it worth it?

What are you going to be hunting?

What kind of scope is it?

boomroasted 04-06-2011 09:53 PM

just small game. woodchucks stuff like that. I'm just unsure of how much the gun actually is worth. I did some google searching and theres difference prices so I cant really get an accurate price for myself as i'm fairly new to guns and hunting.

Lots of need to knows here, Just what model 12 savage is it ? there are several variations. Try Savage's website for a general idea of new value, you usually pay less than their suggested retail. Gunbroker.com has lots of used guns listed. This might give you a ballpark idea of value. As to the scope, what is the brand ? value is largely based on whether the scope is from a manufacturer know for making good scopes, Leupold, Nikon, Burris etc. or a company that sells low end stuff like Barska, BSA, NC Star Etc. The bipod's value is also dependent on manufacturer. If you can be more specific I am sure you will get a lot of help and advice here. Hope this helps.

ok thanks ron, good points. I'll see what I can get for info and post back asap

I asked if there was any letters to it. he said just a model 12 varmint, $75 bipod and a fairly cheap scope NC Star

can anyone else help me out here?

lonyaeger 04-07-2011 01:33 AM

Ron gave you good advice. I can tell you that the NcStar scope is worth next to nothing. The bipod isn't worth much either. Have you looked at Gunbroker.com for similar models like Ron suggested?

boomroasted 04-07-2011 01:41 AM

yeah i check it out a little bit. I didn't see any exact guns, but i think its close to what i should be paying, but am unsure

lonyaeger 04-07-2011 01:45 AM

Still a lot of variables that could enter in, but I would offer him $400 and see if he bites. Up to $500 probably wouldn't be bad, depending on the condition.

Most of the members here will try to help you help yourself rather than do the research for you. :)
