new guy with a question

Post by chukster909 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 8:28 am

I have a pristine 3 screw (not flat top) in 30 carbine. shot VERY little. doesn't even have the typical "ring" on the cylinder. I want to sell it. Any suggestion on the best method ? The revolver and I are in Delaware.

Gunbroker is one option, you could list it here on the classified section and other forums. There may be someone here interested.

thanks. didn't know I could sell on GunBroker. I don't have an FFL. So I guess I get a "sale" I take the gun to a local FFL and he sends it to the buyers FFL ?

Yes you can send via ffl or some ffl's will accept them from an individual with a copy of your driver's license. Show us some pics of it, do you know how much you want for it?

Hope this works.
gun is a 50 prefix.and has been fired very little. Barely a trace of the line on the cylinder. And the only other flaw is a tiny chip in the finish on the ejector rod.
A friend passed and left me 4 guns. The other 3 are worth maybe $100 total. I plan on giving his widow $200 for the others and whatever I can get for the Ruger. Shes' in her late 60's and in a tight spot...still has a mortgage and he had only a small ins and pension.
hope the pics come thru.
Tell me what you think its worth.
If you want more pics I will send them directly to your email.

Chuck, that's a very nice looking Blackhawk, it has obviously been taken well cared for. The latest price that Chad from RENE has listed for it is $460. That price is what one collector would pay another collector for one in 98%. Seems to me one that nice would bring more, maybe someone with more experience on them will chime in. There's one like it but not as nice listed now on Gunbroker for $550 with no bids and 2 days remaining.

Thanks for the kind words as well as the input.
I have seen prices all over although my original thought was it was worth about $500. Not having the original box or paper work certainly hurts the value.
