    I've been researching my Winchester model 71 wcf deluxe, Winchester 1873 carbine saddle ring (20 inch barrel) 1876 40-60 peep sight on the stock, and remington 3200 12 gauge special trap. I'm planning on selling these 4 guns together, but im getting largely different pricing on them. I need to know what the retail value for these guns all together would be?

    The lever actions will go in the low 4 figures each. It may seem convenient to sell them as a package, but you would do far better to sell them individually.

    Yes, don't be so urgent, you will get a lot more if you can do some homework and do some dealing.

    Why is this urgent? Are they about to confiscated? Or are they hot?

    Maybe one of OP's kin is hospitalized and needs money to pay for it?

    Or to pay off a loan shark.

    Let not jump to any conclusions ;)

    You might come out better selling them individually. Also, are you throwing in the mountain lion blanket to sweeten the deal? j/k

    The best way to get a fair price is to sell them via internet auction, such as www.gunbroker.com or www.auctionarms.com. There are dealers who will auction them for you, for a 20% commission or so. If you are truly in a hurry, you'll simply have to take the best offer you can get.

    I'm not in a rush to sell them, they aren't stolen I don't need the money for a loan shark or anything dumb. I've done my research on the internet for about 6 months. The prices vary far to much, and most the time they are way overpriced. I have the standard catalog of firearms from 2008 I needed a up to date price. I was hoping i could get more specific pricing advice. I know the lever actions will at least go for 4 digits. The 1873 is different its a carbine makes it more valuable, and since it has a leather saddle ring ups the value too. The .348 being its a deluxe increases the value aswell. The problem is I'm not sure what those details will do to the value? Any further help would be much appreciated.

    As stated before your best bet is selling as separate items on a gun auction site. There is no need to be in a rush that will not allow you a maximum profit IMHO. You will get many varying prices offered as there are many ways to sell and they all will yield different results. If you put the old ones up on consignment in a well publicized auction at a known auction house with a lot of other antique firearms there will be better returns. They will require a cut for the advance advertising/selling. Sell the mordern ones on GB. Good luck with your adventure.:)

    You need to have them appraised by a professional auction house or antique firearms dealer. Random people on the internet are not going to be able to give you the level of detail you are seeking.

    Me, I'd keep them.
