Hey! I posted this on the general forum before realizing there was an ask the expert forum! I have several guns my father has given me the ok to sell. I'm hoping someone might be able to tell me what to expect if I sell to a private collector vs a gun dealer:

Winchester 3030 Pre-64:
Serial 1583519
Model 94
Excellent condition and works perfectly
Only blemish - sling mounts were added which required drilling into the stock to place one of the mounts

A.H. Fox Grade A 12g Double Barrel:
Serial 11858
26in Barrel
All original - beautiful gun - some signs of age and faded bluing
Biggest blemish - chunk of wood missing from stock

L.C. Smith 12g Double Barrel:
Serial 399200
26in Barrel
Reblued and nickel plated - looks great
Rubber butt plate added to stock

Any suggestions would be great! I have pictures but don't see any way to post them?
Thanks

Condition is everything to collectors.

There is a sticky above with how to post photo's directions.

You could look them up in 'the blue book of gun values' at your local library. Check the current auctions for any similar items and see what they go for. You could do an 'advanced' search of completed auctions.

The Model 94 is a $500 gun.

If you have the time to invest, open an account here and sell them at auction. Selling to a dealer generally gets 50% to maybe as much as 75% of the top dollar price.

You do not discuss the condition of the bores, type of barrels, lockup, amount of choke present, or whether the stocks have been cut or not.


Presuming the worst, you have $300 shotguns for a low number, maybe $500 if there is something better than I am imagining.

A shame to see good guns gone wrong.

"Most people fancy themselves innocent of those crimes of which they cannot be convicted." Seneca

"Hope has two children: anger, and courage." Augustine, Confessions

Der Verzagten aber und Ungläubigen und Greulichen und Totschläger und Hurer und Zauberer und Abgöttischen und aller Lügner, deren Teil wird sein in dem Pfuhl, der mit Feuer und Schwefel brennt; das ist der andere Tod.
