Revolver Value

Post by speed_racer » Tue Jul 31, 2012 9:03 am

My grandfather asked me to find a value for his gun, i understand these vary greatly in style/value so maybe you guys can help me out.

All I have is a picture, from a 35mm (and no scanner) and a copy of the front page of the owners manual.

Its a Ruger Super Blackhawk - never fired since bought new

Any specifics that change/make up the value? Whats she worth? He just wants a henry lever 22

Any idea on year? For some firearms this can be a couple hundred dollar difference.

A new 7 1/2" stainless steel Ruger Super Blackhawk in 44 magnum is $531 shipped from Bud's.
I guess your grandfather's revolver would be about same.
As far as 27 y/o revolver being more valuable or not, I don't know as I'm not sure if there is any collector's interest.
As a shooter (instead of collection piece) I would think people would prefer a current production.

Unless there's some collector value, as a like new shooter it's worth about $400 retail, guessing.

If you can get the serial number, you can get the year of manufacture from the Ruger website.
