    (I posted this in the general forum. Should have been posted here. Thanks.)

    Hello,

    New here. If this is the wrong place to post questions, please advise.

    I am helping a friend sell a few guns left to her by her late husband.

    The newer guns I believe can be readily identified and valued, however there are several that I have no idea of where to look or who to talk to for identification and value.

    I can post a list, and would welcome any help on placeing values, or how to properly identify what is here.

    Can pictures be posted to this site? If not I could email them, or perhaps I could link up online with a web cam and someone could advise what they needed to see for proper identification.

    I am in no hurry to get this done, she does not need the money. I just want to help her get fair value.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Set up an account at Photobucket.com and upload the pictures there.

    Then, they can be linked & posted here by clicking the little photo icon at the top of the text frame and inserting the link.

    I do have a Photobucket acct, so will post there.

    Should I just post one gun at a time? Or put several there. I am concerned due to my ignorance I will be overwhelmed with too many post and too much info. :)

    I pasted the link, but obviously did not do it correctly. I put several photos in an album, do I have to paste the link of each picture? Or is there a way to view the entire album.

    Nautical, there's a problem with your image link. When you upload a pic to photobucket, there should be a few windows with lines of text below it, or when you roll your mouse over the image. click in the window that says "IMG code" and highlight all of that text. It should end with .jpg

    then copy and paste that here, including the [​IMG] tags. That will make it show up properly. The image above is missing the last bit of info.

    You can do either. If you have the whole album open in your browser, you can go to the top of the browser and copy the http:// address that appears in the browser window. Paste that here and it will show a link to the album.

    OR you can click the check box next to all of the images you want to show up, then go to the bottom of the page and click "generate html and IMG code" and it will give you a couple of options. Copy the text in the window that says "IMG clickable thumbnails for message boards" or the one that says "IMG images for message boards"

    One will paste mini thumbnails that people can click and open the larger images, one will paste the full size images.

    I think 18 or 19 all together. But over half are newer guns that I can identify. Just tyring to sort out best way to value/sell them. A friend provided me a copy of "The Blue Book"? on a DVD. I found some values there, but what is published and what someone may want to pay is greatly different.

    For instance, there are 2 Colt AR-15 rifles. One has a shorter barrel and a collapsable stock. The other does not have the collapsable stock and the barrel is about 20" vs 16".

    An old friend (lives 1,000 miles away) that is trying to help me over the phone seems to think the one with the short barrel and collapsable stock is worth several hundred dollars more than the other.

    A local person with an FFL, (Not even sure what that stands for) said they were both worth the same, as all the parts are interchangable.

    He gave some general ideas on value for the Browning rifles, Colt 357 Python etc, but said he had no idea how to value the older guns. That's why I am here, hopeing to learn and educate myself.

    Hopefully someone will be able to help better identify what these guns are and what the aprox. value might be.
