    Generally speaking, these prices are 5-11% high.

    A gun is only worth what someone will pay for it. That said, remember, those who collect and cherish certain guns are an ever-shrinking pool of potential customers (they are getting older and/or don't care or they are dead). My book shows this gun at (24th ed.-4 years old) 2100.00 - 100%, 1800.00 - 98%, 1600.00 - 95%, 1500.00 - 90%. The question becomes, how bad do you desire it and are you looking for resale in the future???? How much will it bring on the yard sale the kids have after you "croak"? My 2cts....merlyn...

    The fewer there are of any model, the less you can trust the Blue Book. It's just a guideline.

    The Blue Book is the main book at gun shows. DO NOT TRUST THE GUN TRADERS BOOK. That book is worthless.
