    Hey guys I need your help, I am helping my mother sell off my step father's small collection of rifles. Some seem to be normal like the mosin but then i have no idea how much a black powder thompson goes for. I looked around on gb and ga but its hard to tell what to ask for.

    So here they are:

    22 rifle scoped: marlin original golden 39a
    scope: bushnell sharpshoter3-9x32

    30-30 winchester 94-30-30. condition okay

    muzzle loader: thompson /center arms 50 cal "hawken"

    Mossberg 500a 18 inch 6 shot wooden furniture

    Mosin Nagant

    Ill get some pictures up soon.:eek:

    The 30-30 and the muzzle loader are probably the only ones worth enough to even bother trying to sell.

    But don't go by my opinion. I'm just taking a crack at it for fun. I'm more into handguns.

    Does your step-father have any children of his own, and any relatives who may be interested in shooting?

    Model of Mosin-Nagant can very greatly influence value, but it looks like generally low-range firearms worth no more than $400 apiece for the Marlin and Winchester and maybe $200 for the others.

    Texas, baby!
    the marlin, if aged and in good condition, is worth the most here. Even a crap one goes for 300.
    would have to know the age of the scope, and if it is made in japan.
    the winny should do at least 250, if a beater, 300 if decent , 400 or more if in very good condition.

    Rangerruck I cant find anything on the scope that says japan or not, anyway to tell?

    What about the Mossberg, its seems to be an older model with better than current quality. 500a 18" barrel with heat shield, 6shot and nice wood.
