    Is the reason for selling a K80 (or similar gun) in pieces a way to get more money for the gun or is there another reason?

    I think it's a matter of both, maybe you may get more for some parts and less for others. It's another way of marketting the gun and ultimately selling it.

    Depends on the gun. On say a 391, you can easily double your money by breaking it up, but on a K gun, not likely.

    There are some 'world class" disassemblers on this board!!! P,K or B guns take your pick.

    I sold two of them and made more money selling them in pieces than I would have in one piece but does make a difference on what they are.

    Unless it's broken and you're trying to sell the usable parts, I can't Figure out why you'd want to part out a good trap gun. Kinda like having a really nice '69 Camaro and parting it out???

    I have parted out several K-Guns and P-Guns and have sold the parts on here. I find that is the best way to sell. Example: If you decide to sell the entire gun, you have to find someone who is wanting the entire gun. With a K-80, you could sell the receiver and forend iron and someone would buy who is looking for a back-up. Take the barrels, someone might want to keep their barrels original but really want Wilkinson or Allor work. They will buy the barrels.

    I have always made a quicker sale of gun by parting out.
