    What is a new stainless Old Army Ruger worth for a decent deal at the gun shop?

    Hello, I have a dumb question if anyone can help. Curiosity finally got the best of me because I've always heard how much fun shooting Cap and Ball was, SO, I just purchased a Ruger Old Army 45 Cal. I have read a little about the supplies needed and purchased the caps, prelubed wads, lead in 457 and some powder. I also bought Pyrodex pellets recommended by the guy at the store, but when I got it home, the pellets read 45/50 for 45 caliber in-lines? I don't have a clue but I think he sold me the wrong stuff, your opinion is welcome. I would also welcome any recommendations for loading like powder, caps, etc...most of you hear are FAR more savy about this than I am.

    I am thinking of buying one of these. Are there any thoughts as to which one is more popular, the 5-1/2" or the 7-1/2" barrels? Steel or S.Steel? Thanks.

    I have a old army and was wondering what could a guy get for it on a auction and do I have to have a FFL handle the deal on a auction

    Its been shot a few time but cleaned very well I do not have the box/papers(burnd in a fire)
    it does have a nice holster
    if you need a few pics
    I'll send them to you so you can give a good price on what to expect

    Give you $50. Seriously it depends on condition. Anywhere from $200-$250 for a well worn shooter to $400 + for one new in the box with all the papers. They have been out of production for a while so the good ones are appreciating. Think I paid $300 for mine 3 or 4 years back. Barely used with the box and papers.

    prices have really been going up on those since Ruger quit making them but like slumlord44 said it all depends on the condition of the gun and if you have the box and papers that came with it
    this one sold for over $500
