My father in law is very, very old and not going to last much longer and wishes to sell his guns and I am going to list them on the auction. I don't know much about them but I would like any info on worth so I can set a realistic starting price.

I've sold stuff on ebay for years but this is a bit different and I really don't have a clue as to the value of these pieces. These are all in pristine condition. I'm just going to make the list as it was written by him years ago. Hope you all can decipher it - I sure can't.

1. Norberto Arizmendi, S.A. Eibar - Made in Spain expressly for American import Co, San Francisco, CA (410-76)

2. Winchester Model 77 22 long rifle - Clip Fed

3. Winchester Model 77 22 long rifle - Automatic tube fed

4. Browning Arms Company Morgan Utah & Montreal P.Q Made in Belgium Light twenty browning Browning auto-5 special steel 20 GA shells 2 3/4" -28 Browning patents 732 gold trigger

5. Remington Arms Inc. Ilion, NY Made in USA Pat No 2,747,313 30-06 SPAG Woodmaster Model 742 Remington Monoscope

6. The Marlin Firearms Co. North Haven Conn USA Est 1870 Micro-groove Barrel Model 336 30-30 Win Bushnell Sportview Scope

7. Smith & Wesson Model 916A Springfield, MA Made in USA Proof tested 12 GA. Pump - 3 inch chamber - cylinder bore

8. J. C. Higgins Model 20 - 12 GA. Sears Roebuck and Co. proof tested 12 GA. 2 3/4 chamber - pump

9. 6.5 Jap Rifle

10. Glenfield Mod. 75 The Marlin Firearms Co. New Haven, Conn USA Cal 22 L.R - tube 68


11. Interarms - Alexander, Virginia Made in Brazil 28 Sp Amadeo Rossi SA SAO Leopoldo R.S. M 68 behind cylinder No., Blk with brown handles

Thanks for help!

As I am sure someone else will chime in with, pictures are almost a must to really make any semi informed opinion.

When you get done with the pictures, please post each firearm and the pictures for it in a separate post, with the title of the post being the Make & Model. This will allow for better (and more) responses from our panel of experts.

I'm at my Mom's house right now and she doesn't have any software to shrink down these photos on her computer. I'll have to do this later when I get home. Please check back

You don't need to know the "value".List them with a low starting price and no reserve and you will get every penny they're"worth".
But at this time you'll be selling into a buyer's market.

Actually here is what I would do. The market value on all other's except #4 would be between 100.00 and 250.00 dollars, each. I would start each of them at $99.00 dollars with clear pictures, with no reserve, and let the market decide what they are worth. The Browning, I would have to see clear pictures of to judge condition, as that will be the major factor there. If it is in excellent condition, meaning like new, and is all original, it will be worth lots($1200.00 or more). Beat up, and cracked forearm, rusty, would make it a $300.00-400.00 shooter.

Best

thank you thank you thank you!

I'll get clearer and more detailed photos. Any idea of a real good place to upload them as photobucket doesn't seem be so good... They are clear pics but not once I sent them there...
