I’d say 300, I’m thinking not a hipoint and might be well used with a few scuffs

Yes, but I live a couple of miles away from the J Curtis Earl collection. The Gatling and Maxim got to be worth way more than that. But of course, they don't let me touch them when I go. Worth the trip if you're in town.You ever see any 50k machine guns in person?
No but I have held $20,000 machine guns and multiple Winchester rifles that 25 years ago were $50,000 plus. I would assume they have retained their value. I have also held A $130,000.00 Holland and Holland side by side rifle. I have seen some stupid expensive firearms in my travels including things like a 1928 Full auto Thompson with Drum magazine I can't even guess what it might have been worth. You might be amazed at what shows up at some of the big gun shows. Heck at the Southern California Knifeshow in 86 I saw Buster Warenski Reproduction of King Tut's Gold Dagger (current market value in excess of $500,000.00) With two guards standing beside it with matching Thompsons.You ever see any 50k machine guns in person?
It's the most popular caliber after all.When I hear the phrase "average firearm", I'm picturing millions of rusty budget-grade .22 rifles sitting neglected in the back corners of garages and sheds everywhere. So my answer is going to be $50 or less.
Rusty AK's go for more than you think these days.I haven’t read all the responses to this thread, so I might be repeating someone. But with that said:
The worth or value of a firearm is completely dependent on the situation. To an avid collector of high-end guns, a rusty AK47 isn’t worth much - but to someone who is actively defending his family’s lives, that rusty AK and some ammunition for it would be worth everything he had, and more.
But I do understand the OP’s question. I think if we’re talking about a basic firearm with nothing extra, the average value is probably between $500 and $1000. Once we start adding optics, rails, lights, etc my guess is the average would be a bit higher.
But I don’t buy high-end guns, so I really don’t know how much the rich folks spend on them.
Yep. I wonder why...Rusty AK's go for more than you think these days.
Asking prices or actual sale prices? I feel that with firearms there is a rather large difference, not $300 different but substantial.Did a rough calculation, based upon what I’ve seen as used prices, not those asking more than MSRP for a used gun, but reasonable used prices. Averaged out, I came to $653.12, on average…. At least for what my meager collection is…
