I've got a couple of rifles I'd like to sell but I have no idea what they're worth. One of them has a nice, but older Zeiss Diavari on it, but again I have no idea what it is worth. Can anyone recommend a way to price them?
TIA

Pick up a Gun Blue Book at your local sporting good store or book store. It lists firearms and a reccomended value depending on the quality of the weapon.

Look for what you have on gunsamerica or gunbroker and see what they're going for. you could also create a post in the GD asking what they're worth. You could also get a blue book of gun values at GI Joes or other sporting good shop...

Or you could pick up a copy of the blue book from your local library...

I don't know what the infatuation with Blue Book is..... It is like the used car salesmans Kelly Blue Book only for gun dealers..... When I'm trying to sell guns and a dealer reaches for his Blue Book I just excuse myself and leave.... "Uh full "retail" for your Colt is only 400 bucks and I have to make money so $250 is a fair price." yeah right....... If you use the book just to check relative prices it is ok but I would never use it alone to establish a selling price. Like someone said, go to gunbroker etc.....

Good point. The Blue books are better for finding a ballpark figure. Start narrowing it down by checking multiple sources.

I usualy check gunbroker.com and check the local gun shows and see what they are going 4

Thanks guys. The real problem I'm having is pricing the optics, but I think I got 'em down. I figure I'll just take 'em to the show this weekend and leave them on my table hoping somebody bites.

Or an invoice as they're worth less than nothing
