    I bought this gun a while back and it looks almost brand new...... I have been debating on selling it but I'm not sure yet. I've looked around and can't really find any. Would anyone know about what this gun is worth? Is it a uncommon gun to find?

    I seen them anywhere from $300-400 range. The tip up barrel was so you do not have to rack the slide mostly for ladies or older folks that have trouble with straight. It also makes cleaning the barrel easy. Nice bug gun.

    You really need to take it and look it up in the gun blue book. Be honest in your assessment If it been fired it is not 100% Look at holster wear, scratches, nicks and bluing. The age of the gun and serial # will affect the value also. With out seeing the gun that model may be a rare model. Look at proof marks it might be a military or police issue. The price is normally what someone is willing pay for it.
