    I was just given 2 guns. A stainless Ruger Vaquero in .357 that has been used very little and a Rossi .357 lever action model 92 that is prob 99%. Does anyone have any idea how much these two guns are worth? I am not really interested in cowboy actions and they are not anything from my family so just trying to see what I "COULD" get for them. Thanks for looking and the help.

    Go to a SASS event. Then you'll want to keep them.

    off the top of my head they're worth 700$ cash FTF, 500 (buying) to a dealer and 1000$ to an optimistic seller.

    i've been given a lot of guns over the years for various reasons but so far every last one of them has been some sort of .22lr. i need to start hanging out with a better class of people obviously. lol

    Yea me to! Sounds like the previous owner like the combonation of .357s. Actually they are both good guns and the Ruger is something like a $400 gun, and the Rossi close to that price to.

    What a good gift!

    Dude, you will regret selling those - even if they are not your thing right now. If you really enjoy shooting, your interests will expand to include them.

    My grandfather has a TON of firearms, revolvers, semi autos, rifles. He used to shoot in competitions and just is armed to the teeth. Hes getting too old ot go shooting anymore so I'm patiently waiting for the day he hands them down.

    There is two I have in mind that I really want that he has. One is his military issued (From when he was in WW2) M1A1 Carbine and the other is a *****en 30-06 hunting rifle. As long as I get those two he can give the rest of them to my siblings for all I care lol.

    Thats one of two questions I really want to know from him, the other being how he got into the army when he was 16...

    Times were different back then I guess. :dunno:
