    There's a local auction this Saturday. My son and I are going for a boys day, it's our way of celebrating his birthday. I don't see anything special but, admittedly, I know next to nothing about shotguns. You guys see anything on this list worth a bit of extra attention. I'll be eyeballing the 66 and Colt revolvers, for sure imagejpeg_0.jpg

    Somebody liked their Remington Model 11's. I'd be curious about the 16 gauge.

    I want the Nickle finish model 66. That would be rare.

    The S&W 66, the Colt Trooper and several very useful shotguns up for auction in that advertisement.
    All would have my attention at an auction.

    The Remington Fieldmaster .22 pump if in good condition would be nice to have. Besides that I'm with @il_10 on the Trooper and Ithaca

    I figured they just misquoted. I never heard of a nickel 66.

    Fuzzy pictures show a white FOUR INCH S&W.
    Local auctioneers are not gun experts.

    I would like to see what that Brno target 22 and the Ithaca lightweight 20 go for.

    The Savage 24 .22 / 20ga. over under might be interesting, as might the .30 Carbine if you don't have one. I have to say I know nothing about Fed. Ord. carbine's reputation though.

    BRNO target rifle, high standards along with the 66, Wingmaster 20 and 1 or 2 others might be worth a good hard look.

    I'm sure it will be interesting if its like most of the estate auctions I've been to in the past few years. People will pay some unbelievable prices at some of these auctions. But you never know unless you show up. Maybe there will be some deals to be had. Good Luck

    I saw that too. Betting that one will bring top dollar. You Might even see some factory reps trying to get that one! Since the 586 nickels are bring top dollar on GB, there is no telling were this one will go!!

    The S&W 66, Savage 24, and Remington fieldmaster would draw my attention. Unfortunately the few gun estate auctions I've attended recently have ran prices to stupid levels. Auction fever perhaps?

    Ain't no such. Stainless is denoted by the first "6". Could be a 586 but that is a bigger frame. Stainless.

    Ive bought many long guns at local auctions at very good prices. Ive said before though that handguns around here reach asinine levels at auction. I saw a high point 9mm (or maybe 380) bid up to 150 dollars at an estate auction (plus a 7% buyer's premium and background fee) a few years back. There were gun stores less than a mile away in both directions selling them for 130. No extra mags.... nothing. The guy I was there with even bid it up to 120 with his brother and I telling him better. I got a marlin 39A in good condition at that same auction for 350. At another auction from that same company but years later I watched a plain beretta 92 go for 600 in pretty beat condition. The next gun was an engraved browning bl22 I bought for 300. Followed by a savage 12 guage that is a strange side bolt action that looks exactly like a semi automatic. I started that one off when it got down to 75 bucks thinking it was a semi auto....I accidentally bought it for 75 bucks. Lol.... You win some you lose some.
    I always make a list of which guns I'm planning on biding on and my max bid. Ive seen my friends get in biding wars and triple what they said was the max though. I won't say I haven't went over a couple times but i do pretty good. It's a good idea to have a list. Also every auction I've been to has the guns on display before the auction to fondle. Look closely at anything. Especially anything rare. I saw an old military bolt action (I can't remember maybe springfield) that was being sold as the apparently rare sniper or marksman version that was clearly the product of ebay aluminum flash hider and other cheap parts. I knew nothing of that model and had no interest in it but knew it was BS. I heard other, more knowledgeable in that rifle, guys saying the same thing later.

    I've Probably bought 75 or so old shotguns and rifles for good prices but I don't recall ever winning a handgun I actually went for. I have won a few "junk" 22s and buckmarks/mk2, 3, etc that were just good deals but never one I actually went to buy that I can think of right off.
    Typically the guns with a following (the trailside and Hi standards on your list, a python, cooper, colt woodsman etc), will have guys who drove to the auction to win that gun. They rarely go for a good price and often go way over what anyone would pay for the same gun in a store. Pride bidding i think. The plain, run of the mill guns in my experience are the best bargains. No one drives to the auction to buy a mossberg 500 or Marlin/Glenfield/westernfield model 60 or similar. I've started bids off at exceptionally low prices just to get things rolling and won more than once.
    I've also went with a list of guns to bid on and came home with a bucket of chains, a snowsled and a new old truck. Lol. Be prepared

    Half the people there will be watching the S&W and Colt. The Hi Standard Sport King is a real accurate .22 if that's something you're interested in.

    Looks like a great auction to go to if you're looking for a Remington model 11, otherwise probably just a way to pass the time.

    Me and my son are going. It's his 11th birthday and he wants to have a guy day with dad. He seems to be interested in a double, something I know little about.
