    Hi,

    Appreciate opinion of value of Ljutic I'm considering selling/trading:

    Monogun low rib.
    Briley choketubes.
    Nickled receiver.
    Gun recently serviced by Ljutic in July, 2008. New bluing on barrel.
    Exhibition grade English walnut wood with Soft Touch by Shooters' Emporium
    Americase Case in excellent condition.
    Trigger recently rebuilt and tuned by local expert trigger smith; 3.5 lbs. let off. Pull trigger.
    34" barrel.
    Comb adjusts up and down, but not for cast.
    Neutral stock.
    Adjustable butt plate; stock has not been cut.
    Build of gun in 1997.
    70/30 POI

    Reason considering selling: Obtained another Ljutic that is much older. I like having vintage stuff for the conversation value etc.; hence don't need two Ljutics.

    Chango2 All the stuff you listed is nice but adds no value to the gun . All guns come with this stuff . You would be very lucky to get $3,000.00

    I see alot of used LJutic guns for sale and I can buy a gun like yours for $2500.00 or less .

    The low rib will hurt you when selling as most people prefer the mid-rib. Put a price on it that to you seems fair and if no one buys it in a reasonable amount of time then you know the price is too high at that point in time. You can then either lower your price or hold onto it hoping the market for it will pick up at a later date.

    Thanks for your input; since gun only appears to have a "street value" of $3500.00, I think I'll let her ride in the safe for a while.

    Regards to all...

    IMHO, keep it... I've decided to do the same with mine. For the money, you can't buy better but you can pay more.

    All good

    You probably ARE better off putting that money in the market, as low as things are!

    It's worth what a buyer will pay and you will accept. I know I can't get my investment 100% returned but they don't cry about being cold and they don't complain about the dark in the safe. Mine is worth more then a buyer will pay to me! One of my sons will have it one day. I hope he enjoys it as much as I do. Put it away and one day it will be one of the "vintage" pieces. Incidently. mine was made in '83 also a low rib.

    There are a bunch of Ljutics on Indiana Gun Club's website for comparison.
