    I have an uncle who is strapped for cash and gave me these to sell. I loves these guns. I want to keep them so bad. They need to be cleaned but the finish is 98% and the grips have very little wear. I will clean them up and post some better pics but I just got them about half an hour ago.

    Any idea of what they are worth? I looked on Gunbroker but the prices are all over the place. Is there any way to tell what year they were made?

    He wants a thousand but I want to find the actual value and Gunbroker doesn't have one like this for me to compare to.

    All three are beautiful classic handguns.

    The Hi Power is my favorite 9mm of all time. I'd like to get a nickel model at some point.

    Start the 27 and 29 at 650 or so if they clean up nice.
     
  6. Finally!!! For the first time in recorded history Bac likes a handgun but doesn't have that specific model in his collection!



    BTW the S&Ws can be dated by the serial numbers on the butts of the guns. If you check the inside of the crane it will give you a dash number as well. There are several references out there that will list date by serial number range.
     
  7. The nickel BHP were only made at the time they moved production. These are not to be confused with the silver chrome. They are not seen much as a result of the limited manufacture time, hence no Gunbroker. To answer your value question, I would suspect little over 1k but that is a guess.

    Drop me a message as I might be interested in all three. Where in tx are you?

    I am in Mesquite, Just east from Dallas. I will let him know today and see if he still wants to sell. The boxes came from a smoking home and overnight they have made my safe smell not new anymore. As an ex-smoker I am particularly sensitive to the smell. Not too happy about that but I should have foreseen that. I wiped the boxes exterior down but it did not help much.

    MrCowboy99, I will PM you and we can talk, or er... type.

    Usually he has a nicer, more rare example to boot.

    That's OK he is filling the final whole in his collection as soon as I can get to the UPS store. I am sending him my Jennings J22 so his other pistols can feel jealous.
     
  11. Glock 1 I would put them in a tote box with kitty litter in it, or put them in the box with baking soda in it, but I wouldn't let the baking soda touch anything. I've done this with books in the past and it works, but it takes time. Make sure the firearms aren't in the tote, baking soda is corrosive to steel.

    $2K for all three would be a nice deal. Prices have been on the rise and I don't see that stopping anytime soon.
