Depends on the sophistication and enthusiasm of the bidders whether prices will be cheap, reasonable, or high.

Every time there's an auction around here, even household auctions with a gun or two, they go high. I'll try to go and write down prices.

BigBore44
January 30, 2014, 11:55 PM
Yeah I'd like several on that list. But as stated, auction guns go for a lot around here also. $250 guns go for $500-600. Guys get in "bidding wars" (PC version) and way overbid. They could easily buy the gun online used and even new for less than the winning bid.

January 31, 2014, 12:23 AM
Items 40, 43, 51, & 55 are the only ones that I would be interested in. But, I quit going to any auctions for guns many years ago because the ones that I did go to, every gun was bid up to way above market value. Some times more than double the value. Top that with all the auctioneers (At least here in Arizona) add a 10% to 20% “Buyers premium” and an FFL transfer fee up to $35. It just isn’t worth wasting my time.

But I wish you good luck. Maybe it's better in KA.

Dang, there's some nice-sounding stuff in there. When my rich uncle passed up in MO circa 2006 they auctioned off all his good stuff, unfortunately I was tied up in Korporate Amerika bs trying to climb the ladder and didn't get to go. I emailed, snailmailed, called the auctioneer and tried to get in touch with cuzin Richard (who I had never met) but no luck. Uncle Frank was known as a collector of rimfire guns, the story goes he had dozens and dozens of various vintages....I don't really know. I had plenty of cash but no time.

Any and all would be a keeper IF the ending price was good enough but with most auctions the end price will be crazy high. Do not for get those "fees" either. Who knows a little research ahead of time on going rates of each and pre auction inspection would shape up the list into try for $$$ max or others with do not bid. Remember rarity and condition is king. I would take some funds as there might be some surprise low bids for whatever reason. Have fun, kinda like going to the zoo if you want to see it like I usually do.

the smith 25-2 and the 15 are sure winners. The ruger #1 in .357 would be in my hands, if it went for a decent rate.

January 31, 2014, 04:13 PM
#42 is not correct - the Ruger Red Label is a shotgun, not a .22 semi

There are a lot of nice handguns; personally those S&W 25-2 in 45ACP would get my attention

ole farmerbuck
January 31, 2014, 04:46 PM
I admit I know nothing of the value of any of these. If someone wants to take the time and post what they're worth, I might try to snag a few. Around here, there is no fee when buying guns as far as I know. The seller pays a % of the selling price but the buyer doesnt pay anything but the price of the gun. Which it might seem like there is a hidden fee in it! :D

Where I live the seller pays 15 % of the selling price plus advertising and building rent. I m at that age where I m thinking about selling off my collection .. Items selling high at auctions sounds good to me. ==== A few years ago I would have ben interests in some of the firearms if they were in fine condition. The list does not list the NRA condition codes so all of them could be junk.

February 7, 2014, 04:42 PM
I would love to have the opportunity to bid on many of them. Particularly the 625 Smiths and the 1911. It all comes down to price. Do your homework on current prices and inspect carefully before the auction. And don't get caught up in the bidding frenzy. Have a price in mind before the bidding starts.

Colt model 1917 double action 45acp. I guess my neighbor bought it. He called and wants to know if he 'has' to use moon clips in it.

Depends...

If its an early one without chamber steps, then yes, either moon clips (1/3,1/2 or full) are required for the gun to shoot at all.

If it has chamber steps, then single rounds may be loaded and fired, but will require a rod of some sort to extract. Moon clips work much better.

Of course, .45 Auto Rim maybe used successfully in both cases.
