I am gonna take this pistol to Trader Jerry'S tomorrow and see if I could trade it. If not I am gonna see if I can sell it to him. In that case what would a fair price be for it? I paid $75 for it but since its mint condition do ya think I could get about $120-$150 for it? Or more? Or as a Trade ya think I could get a Heritage Rough Rider? Or a .22 revolver of a sort?

It would be helpful to get an answer tonight please. Thanks.

Why do you want to get rid of it, as far as im concerned any working pistol is worth 100 bucks no questions asked. I have a 38sp smith and Wesson I got new, I asked a store what they would give me for it, with no thought of actually doing it , the guy said maybe 140. its easy 200- 250 . I guess I just don’t like the thought of getting rid of a good gun, years later you might think damn I shouldn’t have sold that.

we've got you surrounded.... ... Smith... Wesson and me...

I dont care much for it. I cant hit a damn thing with it and the sight picture is hard for me to pic up when aiming. If I can trade I will see if I can get a Heritage Rough Rider and if not I will see if I can get a another Mosin Nagant. I got an Izhevsk Nagant and now I will see if I can get a Tula Nagant. And if not I will just sell it and keep the foldin cash to invest on another gun in the future.

Snake....

It's a pocket popper, not any good for beyond 10 feet.... Out of your pocket and POPOPOPOPOPOP until it doesn't do it anymore, probably while your moving away from your attacker, or right at them because your cornered.

It is not anything more than that, just like all those .380's everyone is carrying. It is a last resort in a situation of last resorts.

Ask him if he will give you $100.00 in trade and work down from there. He has to have room to make a little from it and someone might like it for a pocket popper or a purse gun. What you paid for it is not his concern if you did not buy it from him, he will not know unless you've told him.

Even trade, possibly a used 22 for a used 22, dunno the guy so I can't tell you. If your a regular there he probably will be willing to do an even trade as long as he isn't going to loose on the deal.

Personally I would toss it in my drawer and keep it for a hide out placed somewhere in the house in a room where you do not have a place to hide a larger pistol....

Might sound paranoid, but there is a loaded weapon in every room of this house at all times which I can get to if needed.

I like the same thing, but get creative, put in clocks, behind end table etc. I knew I wasn't the only one that thought that way. JC

Thanks ISD

Thanks for the advice. I will see about the $100 in trade.

As for tossing it in a drawer I dont think I will do that. The pistol is pretty useless to me. The house or should I say trailer I live in is small and well if the SHTF I got my .45 ready and Carbine at the ready also. The HP22 is not a stopper in the case of SHTF so no need for it in my view. I am in doubt of getting a Heritage rough rider out of it but I am gonna bring it up a used HRR is probably in the $125 Range Id say.

Snake- you put that 22 in between his eyes and he is dead. I have a High Point 9mm and know it is suppose to be crap. But it was left to me, so I shoot it once in a while. It does not and has not ever hung up, jammed, or anything unusual. I hit what I aim at and it fits my hand real well. This Gun new would be what 180.00 bucks, and bad reputation. It shoots as fast as I want, and where I want and ammo does not matter. So do I trash it because everybody says so? Nah just have fun. By the way, sense you are studying and all, did you ever think of training for detective work through the Federal Government, all fields are open, they love young guys to start with college and train for whatever your niche is. Go to Federal agencies, "detective if you have to" Then scroll down to whatever you think would interest you and even federal grants are available. I know a few guys that did a stint with Black and our GI's on the 4 mile killing trail . It is a road that dignitaries can travel and be guarded to Iraq and back. The ragheads know this and raid and boby trap constantly. The Government has so many troops there for so long & black, or Blackwell det agency will pay a fee for ten thousand a run, if you live. 6 months and 12 runs are required. If you live you come back with 120,000.00. They will school you and train you. But I would go for the Government jobs, and keep my arms and legs. John

You can always get something, be more paient if you can, & like I said I can buy a new High Point 9mm or 8shot 6" barrell six gun, or 135.00 for a nw 380. everybody says high point sucks. I had one keft to me and no trouble at all hits where I want and never jams, and I thik I am gonna buy the long barrell 8 shooter because it remindsme of wyatt earps gun. Ace Auto sells them her and lets you try them out first and if fail give you another or money back on the spot. cannot argue with that if just want a piece to have fun with or protect home, or pick a pig off every now and then?

you are thnking right my friend as usual you amaze me being so young. Do not get your hopes up, but a friend of mine I haven't seen for a while is feeling a lot better and asked if I wanted to go shooting some day. I said sure and will call him tuesday. The last time I talked to him he wanted to sell me a 380 bersa and case with a 7 shot clip and loader all in case for 80.00 or he really wants one of my knives. If he still wants to play & trade or sell I will see what he wants to do, and do for you. See what friends are for snake? JC

What are you still madd ? Talk about thin skin? I look up the 1891 double Barrell , The ALL AMERICAM with inside triggers and had patent pending on that fact sense 1889. Damasscuss Barralls, some poke maks on forearm stock and a chsck mark on back stock only about 11/2" long and two gun appraisers saud they were probably their when gun was first fired with new barrell. all numbers match and in new condition, blue book says at least 5,750.00 to 5900.00. Dealer guy says 3800.00 and antique guy says 3750.00. I put it in a local auction and no bites at all. These guys nuts and just forget it and hang on forever & hand them down, or economy, or get what I paid and backout. JC

I wouldn't have a clue what to tell you to do on this.

A firearm is only worth what someone is willing to sell it for and what someone is willing to pay for it.

If it is very good condition I would think that you would do better by posting some listings is Bird Hunting Magazines and possibly look to the back pages in the classified adds for a a couple of Appraisers.

Try here and see if you can get in contact with anyone who can give you a heads up on this weapon. http://curioarmsinc.com/

Good idea John, I will try that. Though the economy is bad now, so it is probably a dumb idea. I was thinking the next gun show and a trade. It is hard to keep hanging on to something on the wall for anybody. Funny thing though, Brooksville is where the Gun was from or owner that is, and they even have a archives of sort. Brooksville is in Florida Guys, and this gun was used to shoot rail-birds and deer and pig etc by an Indian and white wife. Did not go over that big in those days. Rail-birds were like a grouse but smaller and sat along the fences that were put up in the marshes, not much eat, but you do what you have too. Thanks John

Mad?

I don't know what I'm supposed to be mad about. I'm just back from Florida and pretty tired but the kids want to go shoot, so off we go. John, I don't have a clue on the double barrel. Sounds like a nice piece. Perhaps a collector will find you.

Mr. Campbell,
Could you post a picture of the weapon and perhaps the listing from the auction? I can ask around here, I know a lot of collectors and some bird hunters.

Sorry- It is an 1891 double Barrell side by side 12ga Damascuss, with inside triggers " The American" matching serial numbers and is good condition, as low appraiser put it at 3850.00, or 3750.00, a small crack or check in stock by metal which all agree probably happened when first put together and shot. pock marks on small breakdown stock probably markings for boars or speal deer etc. Blue Book has 5700-6000.00 and 2nd appraiser was lowest at what's up top. I will throw in Muff pistol which is 410 or possibly 45 on one side but one trigger 2 barrells, and firing pin on one side weak to touch. Not a mark on it but the number 1. That is it, Inside the big gun it has written pat pending and appraisers antique guys said they did that then but whoever was their first was it. I do not know about that. But Thanks Clint John
