Understand that regional influences can change the value of a gun and the "price books" are often in error to that (and sometimes differing by quite a bit between books). Auction sites seem to inflate the prices even more (all it takes is somebody with the cash who wants that item badly, doesn't want to keep looking so pays top dollar, and everybody else thinks there's is worth the same).

BTW $50 to 100 (once or in multiple) is cheap insurance against an insulted mother in law.

It;s good to check some references, Blue Book, and the other one (whatever next biggest named one there is- I forget) and GB and GA auction sites. Plus look at your local market.

In the old days Old Model Rugers got more in Texas and East and West coast. Midwest the prices were a bit less. Now with the web the price online seems to be the same no matter where. Regionally though, one can score some decent deals.

Not a screamer, but i got a 3 screw SBH..........minty (but no box)............for $500. Same gun in a shop 2 hrs away would fetch well past 700. Crazy, but he gets way more than my LGS does, and my LGS is bigger. Dunno what all drives his market.........but 40% is quite a bit!

Yes, bnty is correct.

Always buy out of season

Now with IN having "rifles" legal for deer (have been for some time but it seems to be gaining favor now) some guns that sat on shelves forever are in high demand (like Marlin 336 in .35 rem, legal if cases trimmed).

Even my .35 Rem TC barrel, got it used for $175, it getting almost twice that on the used market. Demand is stupid HIGH.

It has really slammed the .44 hunting handgun market, lots of used .44 revolvers for sale. Probably why my LGS had the pristine old model for a good price

I look at value of something as what people have actually been selling them for or buying them for not what some book value is our what inflated prices the gun gypsies put on their wares via gunbroker. I don't have to worry about an insulted mother in law. People in my neck of the woods don't have extra money to throw away just for the heck of it

I actually saw a 121 Fieldmaster at a pawn shop yesterday. They wanted $599 for it. It might of hit the 70% mark, but only maybe. Granted, every gun in that place is at least a little high.

My local gun and pawn is the same way. They are the most reasonable dealer around on new guns but their used stuff is horribly over priced

My LGS is reasonable and even offers good deals regularly (on new and used).
Pawn shops..... I have found to be way overpriced, but if they sit on something long enough might make you a screaming deal. I'm never there when that happens, but know some folks who hit 'em regularly and get decent rigs for fair prices.

Have seen some nice rigs come through my LGS...........old old Colts, Smiths, military and other.
Good variety, never know what will show up.

Good stock means the gun vultures circle everyday. Snooze, even a catnap, and you can LOOSE.

BTW, I haven't been there for 2 days.............better make a check

Last decent deal I found at that pawn shop was a '62 Win mod 12 Featherweight 12g. They didnt know what they had and had it all mismarke, cant remember what they marked it as. Was 90%, maybe a little better. Got out the door for $352.44.
But this same place will mark a beat up old model 60 at $160 or better. Lol.
