I'm trying to determine the age and value of several guns. Here's the info I have on each:
Browning .22LR BuckMark pistol with a 5 1/2" barrell (serial# 655NZ33052)
Smith & Wesson .38 Special revolver with a 4" barrell (serial# C59442)
Smith & Wesson .22LR revolver with a 6" barrell (serial# K236803)
Gerstenberger & Co Model 6 (starter pistol?)
Marlin .22LR Model 39D rifle (serial# 72023985)
Newport 410-12m/m choke Model WN (serial# A501461)
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

Welcome to the forum.
I"'m not up on those values,but might I suggest you xx out the last two digits of the serial numbers,for security's sake.
I see almost everyone does it that way,and seems like a good idea.

You need to help out by providing some description of the firearms.
What model as well as make? What "color"? Condition? Box and papers or just he gun in a rug?
