    I have a chance to buy a Colt Peacemaker in realy good shape with both cylinders. I have no idea what its worth. He wants 350.00.

    He also have a German Luger, P-O8 byf 42 made in 1941 or 42 for the German military. All the numbers match and the gun is in great shape. 850.00 for that one. Good prices??
    I could post pics if anyone out there knows anything about the Luger?

    I would be very cautious with the Colt Peacemaker, because they usually demand a high sum of money. Either who ever is selling it doesn't know what they're selling, it's not truely a Colt, or the firearm is defective in some way. Can you show some pictures of the Colt?

    Regarding the Luger that sounds like a fairly good price, but pictures would help also ;).

    I have known this man for 25 yrs. He just wants to sell all his guns and don't care what the price is now. He told me that he knows what he paid for them and just wants to make a little.
    I will post pics today.

    That makes more sense now. I'll be able to make a better judgement once you put up some pictures, but for now I would say it's a superb deal. I would be speechless if I could get a Colt Peacemaker for that price :).

    And you haven't sealed the deal yet?

    If you don't want the Luger, I'll take it!

    From what I can find, the gun is a Mauser, made in 41 or 42 for the German Military.

    Lugers are a VERY complex issue. Some examples bringing thousands of dollars and some that were captured by the Russians and subequently reworked may only be worth a few hundred.

    If they are worth it to you, that is all the really matters. $1200 for the pair is probably fair, PROBABLY! The Colt .22 revolvers were also made in many iterations and I an not a collector of either so I really do no know.

    I have one of the Peacemakers like yours. Gents- these are modern 22 LR/ 22 Magnum. They are good guns, but do not confuse with the colt Single Action Army in cal. 45 Colt.

    This ^^^^ and thank you. :cool:

    Sounds about right for that Colt, if indeed it is a .22. Maybe he just wants to get rid of it due to non-use? :confused:

    Are you buying these to shoot regularly and use or are they eventually in-bound safe queens and designated future invested hopes, for increased value investment through non use/collectors/relic items? ;)

    Well, with the suggestions and your research, it is all now up to what you determine as a fair and reasonable investment, and parting of your hard earned funds. Either a positive climb in value/and or profit or just some sure collateral in the future. They are guns, they will always have some value. :cool:

    I'd jump on the Luger in a flash.

    Prices seem about right for both guns, less than a dealer would want and more than a dealer would give. I bought a Colt with two cly last year for same price from a pawn shop, prices would be higher now.
    Both pistols look great. Good buys as neither will ever get cheaper!
