    I have posted several guns on here to determine values and years and have always got the answers I was looking for, and I really appreciate that. A friend of mines niece has inherited several guns and has no idea what they are worth. I am no expert, but I do have a blue book I can look many of them up, but I always like to get others opinions as well.

    They have brought me poleroids of each gun and serial numbers, but the only way I can post them here is to take a picture of the pictures and they wont be the best quality. There are 22 total guns. Would anyone mind if I posted and asked for info on that many guns? I dont want to impose. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your replies. I dont take the forum lightly and I appreciate everyones help and time. I dont feel entitled to clog up the forum with all of these guns. I am working on blue booking some now, like the gov model colt 1911 made in 1966. But there will be others. Thanks.

    If you or your friend have a scanner, try scanning the photos.

    Heck, if they're pistols, scan the gun. That's what I did with these.

    Although it does tend to make the color funky on the blue guns.

    I dont have the guns in my possession or I could take perfect pics of them. And I dont have a working scanner right now. So here are some of them. All of these will be for sale. I will probably buy a few myself.

    Then 3 colt 25 autos 148312 & 83837 (made in spain) & 129272
    Then browning medalist 22lr. Two of these but pics are of same gun ser # 19026t2 & 19135t2 real nice

    Are these for sale or for values for insurance purposes. reason i ask, I collect Hi-Standards!

    So, the 103 sport king has the "space gun barrel" on it, betting not the original barrel, has some barrel weights, and is of the 8: or longer length. That gun will bring really decent money. It has a lit going for it, the barrel weights and the barrel itself are highly desirable. With that said to true collectors if it is not an original barrel, it will hurt some as to collector value. To target shooters it will add to value. IMHO it is worth easily $800+ and target shooters will most likely pay more. The model B wil;l bring in the $400+/- $100 range on the online auctions. From the picture it does have some roughness on the slide but that could be just the way the picture is, cannot tell for sure. Now these are WAGs hoing by what I have been seeing on the online auctions as of late. I klnow tehre will be some that will dispute my idea as to these values and I do not claim to be an expert. I am going on what I have paid for my several HI-Standard over the years and mainly by current online auction guns that are actually selling rather than sitting there with no bids.

    The 16 ga will sell in the $100 to as high as $175 on line and I would suspect closer to the lower price in part due to the poly choke, undesirable gauge, and maker.

    Again do not take my word as a dead set value because as stated I am by no means an expert and some one will come along to dipute the values I stated of that I am sure of. I just go by what I see guns selling for on the online auctions which is a good indicater as to what a gun is worth as long as you take into consideration that m,ost sold online have a shipping fee of $15 to as high as $40.

    Once a value is established, they will be for sale.

    I am trying to help a young lady determine the values of what she inherited. Your comment of "loose the mauser" was absolutely zero input.
