I am going to try to keep this short but heres the deal. My stepbrother was left 3 firearms by his dad when he passed on. He hit a tight spot about a year ago when his daughter started college. He adressed my dad about selling the guns for money and my dad just told him he would loan him the money needed and then he could have 1 year to pay back or my dad would keep the guns. That year is pushing close so what we would like to do is sell 1 or 2 of them to give my dad his money back and give whatever money/guns is left back to my brother for Christmas. Before we start going to gun shops I wanted to see if I could get some help from the members here. I will get pictures and more info if needed but I am going off of the disc. that my dad gave me for now.
1st is a John Wayne edition Winchester 32-40 lever action rifle. The rifle is NIB, never been fired. Also has the original box of bullets that was purchased same time gun was. Exterior of original cardboard box is a little torn up, but gun is flawless. Has all paperwork that came with gun.
2nd is a Colt .45 1911 style. It is hard chrome finish (my dad thinks, could be nickel) and is also NIB. I figured I will prob. have to get more info on this one to get accurate price but please tell me what to look for to get accurate value
3rd is a S&W .44. My dad describes this as the Dirty Harry gun. Exact barrel legnth is unknown at this time. He said he thinks its Stainless but not sure. This is another NIB. Same with this one on looking for any info that will make it easier to determine value.
Any help would be appreciated. This will be really nice pieces for collectors out there but we don't want to sell one for way too cheap because we are uneducated on what they are worth. Thanks in advance for the help.
