Gun values?

Postby brian83 » Wed Sep 24, 2014 6:17 am

Hello, I was wondering if anyone has a good way to come up with a fair asking price for guns they're trying to sell? I know there is a gun blue book, but if I could afford that, I wouldn't need to sell any guns... I've tried looking at completed auctions on gunbroker.com, but especially with the winchester 94 I'm trying to sell, there are so many different prices and it's not really clear what "fair" would be.

The specific item in question, at the moment, is a '64 winchester 94 (yeah, I know, one year too old for real value) 30-30, short barrel in pretty good condition. Is older more valuable for these or less? I paid 350 for it about 7 or 8 years ago, so am I crazy for thinking it's worth about 400 now? Thanks for any help you all can provide.

I would look around on the internet to see what they going for used and price it accordingly. For example I see 30/30 ,s used with and without scopes at Hoffmans for between $300 -$400 depending on condition.
This was last time I checked their used riffle section. About a week ago.
common sense is not common
