What would a used, Uberti 1866 Yellow Boy with octogon 19" barrel (Sport or Short Rifle) in very good condition be worth?

I would if I had them. But it is not in my possession as I'm considering buying it.

I've been told that 30% less than today's new list price ($1100) is about right if gun is like new. Since it is a tiny bit dinged, it might be worth 30% - 40% off list = $650 - $750 ... which is quite a bit below asking.

There are three or four on the big auction board, all priced in the $1200 range. When you say very good condition I assume you mean NRA Very Good which IIRC means in normal working order no parts needed or missing. blue may be spotty in places, stock may have small dings but no cracks or gouges, all in all a well used but not abused gun. If the $1200 price is close to new price (and I suspect it is) then one in NRA Very Good condition would be worth near seven or eight hundred dollars. Just my opinion, yours may vary.

"You can buy a new Marlin" has nothing to do with it. It's like I'm looking at a Cadillac, and you tell me "You can buy a Chevy for umptyump less money". Maybe. But I'm looking for a Cadillac.

He didn't say he wanted a 357 lever. Said he wanted a Yellowboy.

Last year I traded this one for a Smith the owner had a price of 695 on. I thought we both got a good deal.



So, yeah, 700 to maybe 750. I sure wouldn't go higher.

Thanks for the responses. I guess the Yellow Boy would be NRA very good or fine ... not quite new. Very nice gun in the picture. I'll start at about $600 and we will see what happens.
