    Whats it worth??

    Ok, per a couple of threads I have started I have a bunch of guns I would like to buy! I am thinking about selling one of my really nice pieces to buy 3-4 new toys, but don't know what to ask for it. It is a Nickle Plated Colt Python Elite 6" barrel and It is 99.9% mint 1 cylinder shot out of it at most. I have box paperwork and all. I am not sure that I want to sell it, but there are other guns calling my name and I have other special guns. the Girlfriend has cut my firearm fund so if I want new I gotta sell just can't figure a $$$$ to ask.

    It's worth $100. I feel for ya and I'm willing to help a fellow gun lover in a pinch, so I'll give you $200. That's how I roll....give, give...never take.

    I've seen asking prices pretty high,but also seen where nobody bids either,I think starting at about 1400.00 might get some bids,and depending on how hot it gets depends on final price.The economy has caused a lot of people to squander money they might otherwise deem as toy money

    That is a ridiculous offer and a very poor attempt at humor............. I'll give you $250 !

    Seriously I have seen blued pythons going for $1000 in my area (south Florida). Good luck.

    Go look on the on-line auction sites to see what they sell for (note - you can't judge by what the 'current' bid is, you need to see the final winning bid). GunBroker.com is a good place to start.

    I wouldnt take less than 2000 and I would ask at least 2400 for it. Shoot the box alone is worth 100-150 bucks. ( but without the box the python is worth less..)

    I agree. Something like that demands a premium price these days. Can't find them often. I could only guess without searching the internet for a few hours (and I'm good at searching the internet). Thing is.........if I had the piece, I'd keep it as an investment. I know....there comes a time. Been there before myself. Thing is...I think you have a prize piece. What it's actually worth in liquidating it, I couldn't say. But with you're thinking on obtaining 3-4 new ones out of the proceeds, I'd highly doubt it with prices today. In a way, I look back today at my selling a Colt Trooper MkIV .357mag. But I am where I want to be today. Don't take my advice.

    I'd estimate the Python would sell for $1500 to $1800. I'd put it on Gunbroker in a no reserve, 10 day auction with high quality photos, starting at $1200 and see what happened.

    Thanks all. Great advice here! I am gonna kick it around maybe put it for sale in the classifieds here. Auctions scare me if the reserve is too high there no interest if you do a penny no reserve you can get burnt.

    Yes, some good advice here. But the girlfriend cut off the toy budget? Good grief, you're in for a long ride if that is starting already.

    "the Girlfriend has cut my firearm fund..."

    Sixto beat me to it again.

    Could the girlfriend bring about the same money as the Python?
